I've recently started to send short stories out for publication, so this page will fill up when (fingers-crossed) I get stories published. I'm quite excited and confident that at least a couple of them will eventually. The wait-time can be long - the first publisher I've submitted to has about a 6-month response time.

I mostly write fantasy and speculative fiction, plus some science fiction. Recently I've written a few horror stories without realising - I thought they were just weird, but when they were classified as horror by others, I realised I do write horror too! I also accidentally wrote a story that was classed as literary fiction (that's the one currently out for submission).

Flash

Into the Forest

This was written for one of the 300-word quarterly challenges at the SFF Chronicles forum.

Poems

Stolen

A poem inspired by a waterfall and Scottish glen.

When I Go, Will You Be There?

A poem that became a song.

Novels

Chapter 1 Extract from Eyes of Isaura (working title)

Crikey, my writing style has changed (improved, I hope) so much since I wrote this. It's not something I work on much, as I enjoy writing short stories more, but maybe I'll finish it one day.

Short Stories

Fen Barfoot

This is one of the first short stories I wrote, and there's lots of room for improvement! It's just as it was written during a writing workshop (inpired by the Staffordshire Hoard), with no edits, but I'll rewrite at some point.

Lyrics

Decide in the Eyes

"Decide in the eyes, it worked for me
Open your own, then maybe you'll see."
