I am setting up a Kickstart campaign to turn the paranormal horror novella THE GREEN LEGACY into a full-length movie. Bringing the hope, fear, terror and mystery of Judy to life on the big screen, in addition to generations of characters from my family history, has long been a dream of mine. There will also be many opportunities to show off the talents of a variety of actors but all that information will be forthcoming. Watch this spot for more details.
Terry Miller takes you on a creepy walk back to and from the graveyard. These stories/poems are colorfully descriptive the reader can easily understand what it means to return from the soil. One of my favorites are an excerpt from "The Withering Woman."
"My own flesh was rotting, my vanity withered.
Bugs came crawling and the worms, they did slither.
A frigid, boney hand soon crept into my own.
We rested there quiet until bone was on bone."
Overall, a very satisfying read but many of the works are very short. Terry Miller, I want to read more of your work.
Five out of Five stars.
I invite you to explore the hauntings of the darker side of fiction from a slightly twisted perspective. As real as your conscious world might seem, a creeping anxiety moves you toward nervous laughter. Try not to flinch, as you suddenly perceive the sinister specter. Calm yourself. It only needs to feed on your overwhelming fear. But before you give out a muffled scream, take its cold, outstretched hand and feel reassurance. As you both move toward precarious depths, peer out through the empty eyes of its soul. Suddenly, you feel a warm glow of satisfaction. You have finally found what you’ve been seeking within the dark desires of the paranormal spirit. Welcome to my world.

Every generation has a tale to tell but even true stories change with time. Documenting those precious details is one way to pull together family history but why shouldn’t that special narrative be really memorable?
During the session, the author will first discuss how to effectively build a factual family history. Afterwards, techniques on how to combine the history with an entertaining story, in order to draw the interest of family members and many others, will be discussed. The review will cover the interviewing process, document searches and storyline evolution that can produce a personal and entertaining family history narrative.
Lloyd A. Green, published author, will utilize his book, The Green Legacy, as an example for the session. The book is not only an exploration into the writer's family history; it’s also an exciting paranormal mystery.

An excerpt from:
Chapter 25 - The Subway Ride -Lust
...As we were walking towards 46th Street, I could see that the Globe Theater was playing the sex-comedy Cry Uncle. I asked Regan if she was game to see this movie about a detective who gets into all kinds of trouble. She gave her silly chuckling laugh and said “Why not?” We entered and found seats about in the middle of the auditorium. The movie was already in progress but that did not seem to matter. No, this was not one of those jerk-off theaters but we still got looks from some guys because the subject matter of the movie drew a mostly male crowd. We sat quietly, laughed at times and basically enjoyed this movie and the just as graphic second feature that played with it for the next hour and a half.
As we left the theater, we both knew that Mr. Polite would make certain that she got home okay. But this mister had his mind in the gutter and I next asked Regan if she was interested in seeing my apartment. She acted shocked that I had one. When we broke up, I was still living with my parents. I felt that she must have heard that I had my own place through her sister and Aaron but who knows. I told her that a lot of things had changed and she agreed. We walked over to the “C” local on 50th Street and took it up to 125th Street.
I’d grown pretty proud of my little apartment on 129th Street. Regan and I spoke for a while in the living room and she marveled at the paint choices and mirrored panels I had put up. Of course, when we were tired, the natural place to move to was in the bedroom. It was pretty obvious that regardless of all of our small talk, sparring and trying to make a good impression with each other, never completing the act was interfering with our conversations.
Regan borrowed a pair of my pajamas and we laid down for the night...

Writing a Factual and Entertaining
I enjoy the mystery that writing a good story offers. Effective writing has occurred when the reader is forced to quickly look over their shoulder.
