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.
