Miss Otis Regrets..

He had visited the town library four times in a week before things escalated. Each time he waited in the wings until she was free, before handing back previously loaned books, and signing out new ones. She admitted to feeling rather taken by his appearance and manner at the time, but also very conscious that […]

The Fear In Me

My biggest fear is the death of one of my children. Even writing such a thing upsets me. The weight of such a terrible reality would crush me beyond recognition. I cannot comprehend how I would react upon a visit from the police, or someone from the military.  How do people cope?  I am not […]

Out In The Cold

Gerry’s life was busy. Not just in the conventional sense with family, work and bills. Gerry was what is commonly referred to as ‘a player.’  If he were a woman he would be called something derogatory for sure, but being a man he was exempt from all of that kind of thing.  His family consisted […]

Sketchy

“She keeps saying that if you are ever in her part of the world to let her know. Do it for me, pleeease? She’s my Mum’s coolest friend and was always good to me as a kid. Look at the wedding gift she got us?  Who buys an original Vettriano sketch for a wedding present? […]

If it ain’t raining, it ain’t training!

She watched the drop of rain fall from the edge of the green plastic sheet above her. Every so often, the small puddle that formed near the edge would empty its contents and form a thin silver string that connected with the puddle at her feet.  Despite sitting on her pack, the cold had worked […]

Face to Face

“If you find a couple of diamonds, save one for me,” her editor called out as she ran out of the door, late as usual. Being asked to write a piece on coal mining was not on the top of her list for prize winning journalism, however, when she was told that the last working […]
