Interviewing Peter: The Adventures of Peter Gray
*With "The Adventures of Peter Gray" coming out this April, I've decided to conduct an interview with its titular protagonist. In an empty area of 19th Century Central Park, Peter and I are seated across from each other with the young wolf eagerly fidgeting in his seat*
Me: So, I hope you're as excited for this as I am, Peter?
Peter: Ohoho, ya' bet I am, Nathan! Ask away. I'm an open book!
Me: Literally?
Peter: *laughs* Good one.
Me: Tell me about yourself then.
Peter: *gives a wide grin* My name's Peter Gray, and I'm a street urchin living in New York City--specifically Manhattan, beautiful city, it is.
Me: Were you born in New York City, or did you make your way there?
Peter: *looks left and right before leaning forward* Will what I say count as spoilers for your upcoming book?
Me: *shakes head* Go ahead and tell our dear audience.
Peter: Okay! *sits back up and smiles* When I was born, my parents left me at an orphanage in New Jersey. Can't remember much about where it was o

The sad truth is no one dreams anymore, not like we used to. Once upon a time, we fought to create the impossible, but no longer. It’s pitiful the more one thinks about it. One millennium, we colonized continents and discovered how to harness electric currents. Go forward to the next thousand years, and here we are.

Here I am, running diagnostics on one of the many PODs I’m assigned to before being allowed to clock out for the night. Was it still daylight? Nobody could tell in such a window-less, claustrophobic structure.

My eyes widened, and I shook my hair away to touch my earpiece. “Yes sir! Sorry, sir!” I nodded hastily, finishing the final touches on the POD’s full analysis. “There we are. Now sleep tight.” I chuckled at my

Invisible in the Twilight - A Villanelle (updated)
"Invisible in the Twilight"
By: Domus Vocis
The cities we build that shine too bright
Cause the stars to become so shy.
Will diamonds be visible in the night?
Stars remain invisible in the twilight,
And beyond the forests now lie
The cities we build that shine too bright.
From the mountainous forests out of sight,
To the skies unclean by man’s goodbye,
Will diamonds be visible in the night?
Why is the countryside untouched by this blight?
As we stare at other shiny things and vie
For the cities we build that shine too bright.
Venture out beyond the moonlight,
And marvel at the wonders in the sky.
Will diamonds be visible in the night?
Leave your dwellings now and depart tonight
To empty cities or desolate fields of rye,
In the cities we build that shine too bright,
Will diamonds be visible in the night?

Ode to the Future
Ode to the Future
Oh future, how amazing you always seem to be!
A distant phantom we can never seize
Made of shining gadgets and a floating city,
That bring our imagination to its knees!
Across warring nations and battlefields away.
You’ll never be beyond our hopeful view.
From yesteryear’s tomorrow to yesterday’s today,
You are as infinite as the oceans’ blue.
Oh future, you help us achieve impossible deeds
Through hardship and darkening horizons.
Carrying remarkable visions and creeds,
We march onward as the past wizens!
Oh future, we are conductors of your choirs!
No matter the numerous chains limiting you
Today, you will always arrive by our desires
For a better world that shines anew.

I will always be with you
I will Always Be with You
By: Domus Vocis
As he laid on his bed, tired from the last treatment he’d recently gone through, Keith kept telling me that the leukemia wouldn’t stop us. It was a small setback, and wouldn’t stop him from getting through high school. We’d go to the same college, sneak to frat parties and grow old together.  
“Hey,” he joked, “I’ll even bring you to that dumb sci-fi movie you’re looking forward to. What was it, uh…‘Transcendence’ ‘Deliverance’? ‘Descendant’?”
“It’s called ‘Ascendance’, silly,” I laughed weakly, giving him a soft peck on the lips. “Y-Yeah, we…we will go see it, and I’ll make sure to save you some popcorn.” Hearing me, Keith tiredly gave a smile with his incredible oceanic eyes staring into mine.
“I love you so much,” he told me. “Did you know that?”

A Hundred Years - short story
A Hundred Years
By: Domus Vocis
Time goes by as each day arrives.
As always, my day began as a slow wake-up call. My nurse gently nudged me until I stirred, her voice sounding relieved when my eyes twitched open. For a long moment, I thought I’d died and heard my wife’s voice again, then realized where I was as I blinked and saw colors through my hazy vision. She reintroduced herself, and I smiled while turning to her soft voice. She sounded so much like her.
After helping me with a shower and clothing myself, my nurse helped me back into my wheelchair by the bed. I was fed warm porridge by her, and thanked her in a hoarse whisper as she cleaned my chin. While being fed, I heard a bird chirping beyond the windows of my room, as well as feel the warmth of an April sunshine.
“How are you doing today?” she asked. “Is there anything I can do for you? Turn up the thermostat? Change the station?” She referred to the one sitting on the nightstand, which pla

My book in my own hands (or paws) at long last!
I’m now back in Wisconsin, back in my home town after my adventurous trips to England and Germany, but the perfect ending to it all is finally holding this: my own copy of THE ADVENTURES OF PETER GRAY in my own hands... :D

If you're interested in buying this historical coming-of-age fantasy, about a wolf urchin living on the streets of 1899 New York City, purchase a copy via this link here: bit.ly/2qX2una

Well, my time in Europe is coming to a close now. I will be back in Wisconsin within 48 hours, and slowly recovering from the jet lag (LOL). It has been a wonderful time. I saw amazing locations in Britain and Germany, got to meet my boyfriend again and met amazing friends along the way.

I am going to cherish all the memories I have made, and won't go too much into a tearful monologue, but don't worry. Someday I will be back to visit Winchester and make even more memories across this amazing continent. Until then, I've got a published book to promote, internships to apply for and a long summer ahead! :)

Thank you all, and wish me luck across the Atlantic!
You read it correctly: my dream of becoming a published author has finally come true! "The Adventures of Peter Gray" will be available in retail stores and online by tomorrow, and ebooks later this summer. I have so many to thank for this amazing moment, especially those who have been following me on this site and beyond. 

For those who never heard about it, "The Adventures of Peter Gray" is a historical coming-of-age fantasy following a wolf urchin and his interactions with a human family in 19th-century Manhattan, as well as his antics as an orphan on the streets. I explain more about it in the following journal here:
  My upcoming novel: The Adventures of Peter GrayIn case you're wondering yes, this is my big secret project I've been mentioning for the past several months. And yes, this is what has happened to my chapters involving Peter Gray. Forgive me for any secrecy, but I wanted to be ABSOLUTELY certain before making any announcements. After some tinkering and editing, this will be my first officially published novel. So for those unaware, what's it about? 
​"The Adventures of Peter Gray" takes place in a world of humans and anthropomorphic animals, with the former viewed as outcasts in society. In 1899 New York City, we follow a young wolf urchin named Peter as he befriends a human boy his age named James Lawton. From escaping bullies to rallying newsies to discovering the true meanings of friendship and family, witness Peter, James and countless colorful characters as they grow up getting themselves in and out of trouble over the course of a year.
It feels strange to day the least, having your book being published

For those interested in Peter's tales, purchase a copy by following this link: bit.ly/2qX2una

I cannot tell you how excited I am, but how about you? Leave a comment and tell me what your thoughts are. Are you a fan of historical fiction-based novels? Of furry mixed with history and fantasy?
Peter and James off to adventure (by Ritwells)
Here are Peter Gray and James Lawton (the Furren wolf and human boy respectively) from my novel on their way to another adventure in 19th-century New York City. Where are they going? To visit Central Park in its historical prime? A boxing match out on the street? Or maybe a couple rounds of kick-the-can with the neighborhood kids? Decide for yourself and leave it in the comments! :)

Also, check out Ritwells and his fantastic art!

"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." -Ray Bradbury

Hello~! <3 I'm Domus Vocis, and I am a proud furry writer. Ever since middle and high school, writing fiction has been my calling like a wolf's howl. As I wrote more and took inspiration from fellow authors in and out of the fandom, my love for writing and this fandom has grown over the years. And during those years, I came up with three rules for becoming a more skilled writer.

1) Never wait to write; just write.
2) Don't copy or steal, but be original.
3) Don't let others define what you should and shouldn't write.

Outside of this, I mostly write science fiction, young adult, and contemporary fiction, dabbling on occasion with different genres. I love to binge anime I like, read books and spend my time surviving college exams.

If you enjoy my work, please consider pre-ordering my upcoming debut novel, "The Adventures of Peter Gray" a historical coming-of-age fantasy that'll make you laugh and melt your furry heart! :) If you're interested in pre-orders, follow the link here: writtendreams.com/store/#!/PRE…

On a small side note, I should mention all my stories and OC's are © to me alone. If you wish to borrow any of them, just ask. If not, follow the Three Rules and make your own =) Trust me; a true writer and artist creates his/her own ideas from scratch.
