      When you read one man like you read no one else, you will soon start to sound like him.  At least, I hope. This is a tribute to John Irving’s The Cider House Rules. This is also inspired by the Bible- Psalm 68:6. Let me know when you find it. 😉   When someone you love dies, you go […]

     Happy New Month people! I was talking to someone recently and complaining about how this year has not been the greatest and this is an euphemism…But we still here, we still here and that more than everything else is more than enough to be thankful for. Life affords us choices. Some of these choices will be wrong, some will be […]

  • Purple, In Size 12

      You might want to read about Orange & White dresses.  PS That is me in today’s photo by the way…in one of my favorite places in the world – Ithaca, NY. Doesn’t the name even sound perfect?   Nyong took one glance at the full length mirror and bit her lip in frustration. She looked like an onion that had been […]

    I lost this story while I was moving to a new website. thank goodness for cache! I was so happy to find it. It was a kind of series I was working on – see the first here. Ideas are welcome guys- challenge me, inspire me or just write about a dress in whatever size. It had been a while […]

  • Where The Oranges Grow

    By Kiah on September 11, 2014
    You wake up to the smell of oranges and it is almost as if you slept in one world and woke up in another. But the king sized bed you fell asleep in the night before is the same one you now turn over in. The white silk sheets that clothed your skin during the night have not changed either. […]

    By Kiah on June 17, 2014
    It is night time where I live. Darkness seems to fall faster in the slums than it does in the neighborhoods of the wealthy. I didn’t know this until Akan invited me to sleep over at his house. Mama said no at first when I told her about the invitation. I wasn’t expecting anything else from the woman I called […]

    You guys are probably going to complain that I am beating a dead horse…but I can’t seem to let go of this theme, this thread that has decided to find its way into most of my recent stories… A friend described this as incredulous but is it really? I think the whole point of fiction is to help reality along […]

  • I Chose Her

    By Kiah on May 26, 2014
    I am reading ‘The God of Small Things’. It is beautiful in ways I wouldn’t know how to describe. It is a book i will read once and never again. The themes don’t resonate with me. Somehow I think it influenced this story. I like that this is short. I am tired of writing long convoluted stories.  Enjoy.   Odion knew […]

    By Kiah on May 24, 2014
    I wrote this one for this girl I used to know. We weren’t close but when I think of her, I miss what we didn’t have. It was also one of the stories I entered for The Writer competition. It is an old one but I have cleaned it up a bit. The prompt was to start with ‘The Fortune […]

  • The Princess and The Sea

    By Kiah on April 3, 2014
    This is one of my favorite stories. It took me a long time too to write. But it was worth it. Like I mentioned in my last story, I think parenting has to be one of the hardest jobs anyone can undertake. Yet many do it willingly and sacrificially. Show some love today to the men and women responsible for […]
