Short Stories

From time to time, I attempt the odd humorous short story.  Some of them have been published in the Derby Telegraph, others just languish on my blog.  These are a few of them.


AlterNativity - Part 1 - The Night Watch

This is the first story in my 'Alter-Nativity' series. Basically some stories (with my tongue firmly shoved in my cheek) which show how the Nativity might have played out, if you had been there at the time. For this first story, just what was it that the shepherds were doing while they watched?

You'd Better Watch Out

I suppose that we've reached the time of year when a Christmas story wouldn't look too out of place. This one originally appeared in the Derby Telegraph in 2014, and begs the question, what do you do if you really catch Santa Claus?

AlterNativity - Part 2 - The King Thing (Revised)

The second instalment in my alternative nativity. The shepherds have an unexpected encounter on the way to the stable.

AlterNativity - Part 3 - A Room At The Inn

We've heard about the innkeeper, in just about every nativity, but what about the inn?
