I am a Brummie living in Northampton. I love to write but get distracted with other things. I enjoy horror/fantasy and anything that provokes original thought. My literary heroes are Clive Barker, Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe and HP Lovecraft.
I think that everyone should read George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-four .
I have short stories published in a horror anthology by @thealienbuddha, anthology Vol.IV by @LoftPublishing and flash fiction at @paragraphplanet.
Poems of mine have been published by @thealienbuddha (The Alien Buddha Gets Rejected) and @blackboughpoems (Winter-Christmas Anthology 2023).
I have new stories published in 2023 by @darkwinterlit and @thealienbuddha (Halloween anthology and ABZ55 at ABP) along with appearing in an anthology by @LoftPublishing (Anthology Vol V).

Great story, Jane. Not sure I can improve on the feedback above but I didn't see the twist coming which is always a hallmark of a tale well told. You have some poetic phrases in here that take the story to another level. I really liked "....A...Read full comment
