Posted by The Last Torch on November 29, 2020 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

This year my non-verbal autistic daughter nearly died. I was trying to work from home when it happened and it was a huge wake-up call. I had to quit and focus on her. She was of course traumatized by it and then we went into hard lock-down here in Melbourne. She can't go back to school and we need to survive. To stay sane I wrote this children's book for 3 - 7…

The Headcutter's Stone

Posted by John Anthony Brennan on November 5, 2020 at 11:00am 0 Comments

In an old peat bog at Ummericam, sits the cruel headcutter's stone,

stained with the blood and fused with the ghosts, of men who are now long gone.

In the early evening they would gather in the grove, beneath the sheltering embrace of the sacred white oak tree. The Master had carefully dowsed the area, and had chosen it for the serene beauty and peaceful aura. The salmon-filled, crystal clear waters of the river wound a course through…
