Guilty and Cheap

Tomorrow is my mother's birthday.  I spent most of the day today with her.  She wanted a necklace, so I got her one that she liked, and that I can afford.  Now I feel like cheapskate 'cause I couldn't afford to get her anything nicer.

I feel like this a lot.  My budgets have been tight, and I am not able to be as extravagant as I would like.  I know I shouldn't feel sad, and yes, I know it is the thought that counts, but I cannot help it.

O, well, It is just a quirk in being me.

My name is C.E. Dorsett, and I am a scifi/fantasy writer. I have written the books Shine Like Thunder and The Chain, just to name a couple.  I am really a builder of worlds from the wuxia inspired, scifi setting Our Solemn Hour to the dark fantasy of Dragons of Night.  My writing is influenced by writers like H. P. Lovecraft, Charlaine Harris, Alice Hoffman, Armistead Maupin, Frank Herbert, E E Doc Smith and Robert E Howard. I love to tell stories and talk with my readers.
