Victory Over Death

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com "Listen, I will tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.  For this perishable body must put …

The Gentleman Rogue

My name’s Rune.  It’s a Scandinavian name which means “secret”.  Women find it intriguing because they associate it with folklore and mystery.  They are drawn to me like flies to honey.  I take advantage of their infatuations and frivolous attentions.  They are foolish, lonely and gullible women who lap up my declarations of love.  Some …

Brody Confronts Natalia

"So, what are you in the mood for watching now?" Natalia asked as she turned on the television. They were at his flat and had just finished having Thai take out. They were now going to spend the rest of the afternoon watching movies. Natalia was trying to find something for them to watch on …

The Gazebo

Agatha Christie

I have watched her characters Miss Jane Marple, an astute spinster whose sharp eyes miss nothing and the meticulous, funny mustached Hercule Poirot come to life on the screen and today I thought that it would be fun to find out a little bit about Agatha Christie.  She came from a well-to-do family and was taught …
