Hurting People

I’ve said before that a big part of writing is observing the behavior of people.  This observation enables authors to be guided toward more realistic characters.  One observation that has become very apparent in recent years is hurt.  So many people appear to be defined by the past and the pain that was inflicted upon...

The Unexplained: Hoia-Baciu Forest

Happy Halloween everyone!  I couldn't let the day pass without another installment of "The Unexplained."

The Unexplained: The Hat Man

One of my first articles in this series explores the shadow people phenomenon.  I feel that it is important to reexamine shadow people, more specifically the Hat Man.  All around the world there is a shadowy figure seen by people, typically at night, wearing a fedora, long trench coat, and glowing red eyes.
