Blood & Fire



Stars burst through midnight skies

Spilling moon beam swirls

Like the embers in your eyes

Stand tall, my onyx king

You have always owned the night

Bonded through ancient blood

I am yours with every bite.

Gothic horror writer and part-time dark goddess, Cassandra L. Thompson has been creating stories since she got her grubby little hands around a pen. When she is not busy managing a house full of feral children (human and canine), you can find her wandering around cemeteries, taking pictures of abandoned things, or in the library doing research. She has a B.A. in History and an MLIS, but she ignores her degrees to focus on The Ancient Ones Trilogy, and run Quill & Crow Publishing House. She has her own poetry collection, Rise of the Dark Goddess, and is featured in the Crow Calls Volumes. She also wrote for Anomalies & Curiosities: An Anthology of Gothic Medical Horror, which she edited, along with Ravens & Roses, A Women’s Gothic Anthology, available in our Crow Shop.
