Today, i will toast a dear friend of mine.

A man whose stories are sirens, with words that shimmer and sentences that linger. Who loves the supernatural, making the bizarre believable, with characters that are almost familiar. Who fills my heart with wonder and terror, bewitching my soul. Who inspires me to dream, and dare, to step into the unknown. Whose remarkable ideas seep into my writing, taking me to places I would never have gone to.

He has done much for me. So I will raise a glass today, to him.

Heres to you, Edgar Allan Poe. Happy birthday.

    My niece is a big Poe fan too.
