My stories


A Working Relationship

Monica stands beside her desk and smiles as she presses her palm onto the tips of her newly sharpened pencils.

A Funny Thing Happened

I’ll tell you the funniest thing that ever happened to me. I got trapped underneath a Christmas tree. It was back in the eighties.

School Night

Afterwards, Karen will blame Ray for what happens. She hates it when Doug brings his mates home, and she especially hates it when he brings Ray. She is already on her third glass of wine.

Dreaming Of Simon

Simon Cowell sits with his feet on my kitchen table, his hands wrapped around a mug of expensive smelling coffee. He smirks as his eyes travel from my head to my feet and back up again.
