Welcome to Moonstone – my little corner of the Internet. On this site, you can explore a world of creative writing – short stories, poetry, travel non-fiction, and novels. Since it is a passion of mine, I also have a page set aside for travel photography.
For those who visiting for first time, a brief explanation might help. New poetry and photography are posted at the bottom of this page and are then archived on their own separate menu pages. New short stories and travel non-fiction are first posted on their menu pages, and then they are archived at the bottom of this page in the section called “On the Shelf.”
I hope you take some time to enjoy yourself and explore my creations.
The new poem is “The Liquid Canvas” which I wrote early one morning watching the sunrise over West Bay on Gambier Island. This was a difficult piece to put on paper. Watching the play of light and wind on the water’s surface was fascinating, but it was a challenge to find words sufficient to express this transitory relationship. On the short story page, I have posted the Biblical fiction story: “A Faint Scent of Rue,” which has a modern-day Lucifer as its main character. Part one of “A Jenga Kind of Day” is on the Travel Non-Fiction page, and it describes my exploration of the Gran Cenote near Tulum, Mexico.
Zero Time is available in novel and Kindle formats from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, and Createspace.com. Alternate ebook formats are available at Smashwords.com. If you prefer to deal with humans, Zero Time and also be ordered from your local bookstore.
Don’t forget to visit my writer’s page on Facebook, then view the “Kenneth D. Reimer” Channel on YouTube to enjoy the growing collection of travel videos. If these first two media platforms pique your interest, you can also find me on Google+.
Literature is the passion that has shaped my life, and I can trace its genesis to a single day in my youth when my older brother, Roland, gave me a copy of The Fellowship of the Ring. Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft soon joined the ranks of Tolkien, and I found myself on a path of literary exploration that has yet to reach its culmination.
The Lamb White Days is my first published novel. My second major work, Zero Time, is a time-travel story in which wanderers from the near and distant future travel back to our present day. It will soon be followed by a horror novel titled Ashes. This tale explores the lives of an underground society where a modern-day werewolf and vampires seek their prey in the moonlit streets of Canmore, Alberta. I’m also working on a collection of short stories.
