Jessica Jones vs The Alt-Right- a parody.

I intended to wait until the weekend for this, but the inspiration hit me so hard I had to write. Again, this is a parody, and Jessica Jones(plus the subsequent screenshots) is the property of Melissa Rosenberg and Marvel Studios.   The dialogue, however, is mine. Enjoy! No more racism, my friends. No apologies, G.Miller

Jessica Jones and Charlottesville – a parody

Normally my writing is a lot heavier than this because I prefer to give social issues the gravity they deserve,…

Lion Fight 37 – My introduction to Muay Thai

“Jurrell! Kill’em!” That was a fan who rooted for Jurell Laronal, a super middleweight Muay Thai fighter competing in the amateur prelims of Lion Fight 37.

Achilla Strong: the case for ferocious women.

  During Women’s History Month, I would be remiss to neglect discussing the characters who keep the Nephilim Chronicles alive. Ferocious women are the driving force behind my fiction writing and with good reason. Strong women in real life provide enough motivation for a lifetime’s worth of novel writing. As of late, women have shown…

Get Out: Chris’ rebellion.
