Nocturnal Musings is a compilation of ponderings, essays, and stories written by the author over the years. The range of subjects is vast, but are an accurate representation of the kinds of topics many of us may think and wonder about on a daily basis.

Filled with bits of memoir, slices of biography, unapologetic opinion, personal meditations, historical exploration, and short stories, Walton-Porter invites readers to come along on a unique journey.

Sometimes the language is tame, other times the language is harsh. If you are easily offended, be prepared. Walton-Porter delivers an unvarnished look at the oft-terrible things that hide behind the curtains of life, especially death, betrayal, and loss.

Her short stories, "Mattie's Secret" and "Unearthly Seduction," represent two vastly different genres—horror and mainstream fiction.
