I thought I would share this with all of you. A few years ago my sister went to a psychic reader with a friend. She had some questions that she wanted answers to. At some point during the reading, it was mentioned that she had two brothers. The psychic told my sister that her oldest brother was very creative and that he was a writer, which startled my sister a little because she hadn’t said anything about us. Then my sister told me that the psychic grinned and became quite excited. She told my sister that I was blessed and that my muse, was none other than Oscar Wilde and that he was happy.
Since then I have referred to my muse and the source of my ideas as Oscar. Sometimes I can feel him, looking over my shoulder as I write.
To this day I don’t know if what my sister was told is true, but I really like the idea and it always makes me smile that my work might be making Oscar happy.

Really, your stories & writing have no correlation from anything I’ve read or read about Oscar Wilde.
Its what I was told and it makes me feel good. (I’m not a believer in that sort of thing really, but its fun to think about.)
Aww hell, take it and run with it! I had a psychic tell me a bunch of stuff that became true. I went back a year later and nothing he said that time ever happened. Sometimes the roulette ball hits; most of the time it doesn’t. And yet……folks keep playing.
I loved ‘Fire and Water’, and I can’t wait to read more of you (despite being a little miffed at the red herring…damnit I just knew I had it all figured out….until I hadn’t). 😉
I think that your MUSE is just the inspiration to do what you’re doing! That you’re not writing the same genre as Oscar Wilde doesn’t matter. How you interpret that inspiration is your business and my pleasure (as your fan). Keep up the good work.
The in-patient thinking about it requires to know whether it is legal
in their place.
