What is Hallowe'en without a scary story? If there is anything we humans love doing it is scaring ourselves. We have horror movies, roller coasters, ancient legends, campfire stories and politicians. Perhaps we like to indulge our darker natures or perhaps these sorts of things help us to deal with a fear of the unknown. I don't know. I just know that they are fun!
I enjoy telling stories almost as much as I enjoy carving. A well told, well crafted story can add a new depth and warmth to an event that would be difficult to attain otherwise.
Please enjoy the stories I place on my site. I will update them regularly.
