Something a little out of the ordinary from me!

I don’t usually speak out about religion or politics but I’ve read many statements since the ruling by The Supreme Court that have surprised, and quite honestly, disappointed me.
The Supreme Court ruling grants the liberty of marriage to ALL human beings. I was appalled to read about the resistance in many States. It has been ordered and should be without hesitation honored, should it not? It is the law. 
Another surprise to me is how many people use their belief in God to justify their homophobia (and racism). It baffles me that “believers” think that God could be so inhumane that he would shun one of his own creations simply because of their love for another. If God was that ruthless, would he not be more likely to abandon child molesters and murders rather than human beings just because of whom they love? No one human being is greater than another. Straight or gay, we are all equal. The time has come (and it’s way overdue) to stop judging one another simply because of our sexual preference or the color of our skin? This is my belief.

The Dweller

'The Dweller' is my contribution to this month’s Friday Frights. The theme: Demonic Toys. Previously published under my real name by Angelic Knight Press in the anthology Satan's Toybox: Demonic Dolls, this story is longer than the flash fiction normally posted but when I tried to split it into three parts I just couldn’t decide where each installment should end. So I’m posting the full length story.

The Dweller
by Quinn Cullen

Dan and his best friend Buck, a German Sheppard, were frequent visitors at the local landfill, an awesome scavenger hunt territory. They were treading through heaps of rotting waste, narrowly avoiding stepping on the motionless crows and seagulls strewn about. Under normal circumstances, those obnoxious foragers pillaged the dump for something to eat. Tonight was different. An unnatural stillness had settled in the area as dusk cloaked the small Kentucky town of Flatgap, where Dan lived with his parents, John and Sarah, and younger sister Lexy. Although a hard worker, due to the current recession Dan’s dad had found himself without employment. He was trying to provide for his family through odd jobs offering meager wages while Sarah, a homemaker, was now working at the local hospital scrubbing floors and cleaning restrooms. They were poor, but considered themselves fortunate to have, scanty as it was, any means of income. And if the love they shared as a family had a monetary value, they would be the wealthiest family in the area.

I Remember

I Remember
I remember your arms wound around me tight,
and it hurts.
I remember your body ever so close to mine,
and ache with longing.
I remember your scent,
and sigh.
I remember your eager kisses,
and my lips begin to throb.
I remember your caressing hands,
and yearn for your touch.
I remember the evidence of your desire pressed hard against me,
and gasp.
I remember your loving gaze, 
and tears well in my eyes,
for now repulsion is all I see staring back at me,
I remember that you loved me once, 
or so I thought.
Then you stopped,
and confusion clouds my mind.
My heart is broken as I remember,
and I mourn.

What starts as a simple "assist" turns into the nightmare of all nightmares. When needing and accepting help, be careful who that help comes from - Forneus Corson offers plenty of help, but the price tag is exorbitant.
The twists and turns of Steve's life after accepting Mr. Corson's help keeps one on the edge of their seat, waiting to see who outsmarts whom.
Putting the story aside was difficult to do. I had to know what was happening next, and the way the story reads makes it dang near impossible to find a spot to "let it go". Take the ride, it is well worth the price of admission.
I compared this book to the works of a well known writer, and discovered today that I am not the only one who thinks this way. Stephen King is at the top of my list for this genre, with Heath Stallcup closing in fast!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book! Couldn't put it Down! January 20, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is fantastic! It has an unique story line, likeable characters, and I couldn't put the book down. The main character is an author and as you read the book you will feel like you are right next to him experiencing the action up close and personal. This is not my usual genre but I have read Heath Stallcup's previous novels, so I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did. The book keep me glued to each page and the style reminded me of some of my favorite Stephen King novels. If you are searching for a great book to read, you will not be disappointed buying this book!
