Well, what can I say, really?  I enjoy writing and I like having the opportunity of posting my stuff online for others to read.  I write short stories, fan-fiction and poetry, and have been doing so since about the mid-90s when I was in secondary school.

Some of my earlier pieces were written over ten years ago, and as such the grammar and punctuation might not be as polished as some of my later works.  I did briefly consider going back and reworking these older stories but I've since decided against it.  Those stories are a snapshot of my writing at the time, good or bad.  Therefore, there are no current plans to rework anything that has been posted.  I'm all for receiving constructive criticism on anything that I do, but once I've finished a story that's that; I move on to the next one.

I plan to use my own photographs for any cover art, as photography is another interest of mine.

Thank you, and I hope you enjoy my writing.

Tight as a Boiled Owl

A quaint Victorian tale of family togetherness, and drunkardly behaviour. Special thanks must go out to my girlfriend, Annabelle Wells, who shared a post on Facebook, which provided the inspiration and source material for the Victorian slang terms in this piece. Thank you, sweetheart. I love you. Explanations of the various terms will be footnoted at the end of the piece .

The Button (Part 2 of 2)

Peter has started a new job, but something about it doesn't sit quite right. It's not as if it's the end of the world, though.
