Something a bit fishy…

  Dashing in to say that my new 75-word story Things That Go Bump is up at specialist flash fiction website Paragraph Planet today. It's a flippant little piece about ghosts, dead fish, and things that aren't quite as they seem. Do go and check it out - and I hope you have as much... Continue Reading →

Being Me review

There's a smashing new review of the 'Being Me' charity anthology over at Kimmer's Erotic Book Banter. (If you're put off by that word 'erotic', by the way, don't worry - 'Being Me' isn't a particularly erotic book and as the review suggests, would be suitable for YA readers as well as sensitive adults!) I'm... Continue Reading →

The Huntsman

Today I have a brand new 75-word story appearing at Paragraph Planet. The Huntsman is based on those old northern European 'swan maiden' fairy tales by Hans Christian Anderson and the like, but with a hefty and macabre twist. I just hope it doesn't put you off your lunch!

Being Me available for pre order

A few weeks back I mentioned that I'd had a story, The Visitor, accepted in a charity anthology called Being Me. The anthology includes a total of sixteen stories about people suffering isolation or discrimination as a result of being different, and proceeds will be going to the Being Me charity. And the good news... Continue Reading →

A summons to read…

...my 75- word flash fiction 'The Summons', which is appearing on the Paragraph Planet website. The story is based on an old myth from Thirlmere in the Lake District. The villages of Armboth and Wythburn were drowned (having been evacuated first, I should add - I'm not that much of a ghoul!) during the creation... Continue Reading →

Just visiting?

I had some lovely news on the writing front the other week, but have been so busy dashing around I'd completely forgotten to pass it on! Those of you who've been following me for a while may remember a short story of mine called The Visitor, which appeared in the Queer Dimensions anthology from QueeredFiction. ... Continue Reading →

Noises Off

This is the title of my latest short story, a spooky little tale told in exactly 75 words, which is appearing at Paragraph Planet today. Telling a whole story in so few words isn't easy - I often find that even when I think I've achieved the target I'm actually two words short, or three... Continue Reading →

Fearful Symmetry

Excellent news today - I've had my first short story in ages published over at the Library of Rejected Beauty. The Library does what it says in that wonderful title - collects stories and other assorted creative content that have been rejected elsewhere, often multiple times, but which the creator still considers to have some...

Story from the archives

What a nice surprise.  Like the historian I studied to be I've been digging around in old files and archives, and have just re-discovered a short story I had published way back in 2011, which I quite thought had disappeared. 'Clones' appeared in The New Flesh magazine, which ceased trading not long afterwards (although I'm... Continue Reading →
