Welcome to my collection of writings. I try to ground my works with a sense of reality and believability to create a slice of life that could have been anyone's. I hope that you will find my writings enjoyable and please, if you do, leave a comment?

We Shall Fight On The Beaches...4

There was nothing else for it; I would have to come clean. I just nodded my head, but before anyone could speak, I somehow found my voice....

The first night was long and fraught with danger. We were constantly on our guard but despite that, came perilously close to getting caught...

We Shall Fight On The Beaches...2

I blinked as I went outside. The sun was strong and it was relatively warm. There was a slight breeze and my dress flapped a bit-it was a strange but not unpleasant sensation. It was as if I was in a ghost town...

What if history was different?


We Shall Fight On The Beaches...


This story was originally written in 2011. For various reasons I stopped writing it before it had been completed. Several people have asked if I would continue the story and I’m now in the position to be able to do so.

I’ve taken the opportunity to do a rewrite and an extensive edit and I hope that you enjoy reading it. I hope to be able to put up new chapters once a week, real life permitting, of course!

Originally published in 2000, this story has been reworked, tidied up, edited a bit more and hopefully made readable.

Please note that this story is a bit naughty in places and girls of a delicate nature should not read it without smellings salts to hand.


I'm doing my best, but...

Author: 

I'm finding it hard to find the time to write as much as I would like to.

Looking after an elderly Mum (with my wife) and having a job all take up a lot of my time and energy.

I have two stories ongoing at the moment, Sisters Forever and Get a Life. I am very conscious of the fact that these have taken a long time to write. I hate the idea of not continuing and then finally finishing them and I would like to ask for your patience and understanding at the moment in the hope that I can increase my output as soon as I possibly can.

Life Is Not A Bowl Of Cherries~Final Chapter


I gripped onto Mummy’s arm so hard, it must have hurt, but as she didn’t whimper, I carried on hanging on to her for dear life as we went down the stairs...

Life Is Not A Bowl Of Cherries~9


There was another loud bang on the door, followed by a third.
‘Don’t answer.’ I said.
‘I don’t intend to; ring the number on the pad by the phone; it’s the local police; be quick...’

I had had enough of hiding, running away and not confronting what had to be done. It was time to take charge of the situation and not rely on others...

My singing faltered as I smiled at her. She didn’t smile back and, if anything, she seemed very scared...

Why did she look scared and why was she pretending to be someone that she wasn’t..?

As I walked down the hill to the quay with Pippa and Jen, I marveled how things had changed for me in a few short days...

As the bus left, I stood by the side of the road and took a deep breath. From a distance, Penmarris looked lovely, from the centre, it looked wonderful.

The next few hours were busy for me. I was a bit wary about how others would react to me, as this was the first time I had been out in public as Katie...

I hated the winter and December in particular. All those festive revelries left me cold. Christmas was for happy families and I wasn’t in one...

A Story At Christmas

By Susan Brown

Trying not to be contentious here

But some authors are putting up several stories/episodes at once. This is a bit unfair as the front page is somewhat taken over with these stories and gives other authors less time on the front page and listing on the shortcuts.

Once a story goes off the front page, read counts go down considerably, so the longer a story is visible, the better chance an author gets for her work to be read.

Please think of others when posting several things at once.

Sisters Forever~7

I was in hospital for a total of three days whilst the medical ‘experts’ tried to work out what was wrong with me, if anything. On the second night at approximately 2.30 at the morning, I awoke suddenly....


Sisters Forever ~ Chapter 7

The Wedding

Eagle eyed readers might note that I have withdrawn the story.

I think that I might have painted myself into a corner on that story and anyway some clever people who were kind enough to comment, stole my thunder and gave away the twist. Also, through another one of you clever so and so's, I realised that what I was trying to get my characters to do, wasn't legal and wouldn't stand up to close inspection.

Here was I thinking that I was a clever writer, but my readers are much more intelligent than me!

Get A Life!~Chapter 15

I could have cried, I should have cried, but I wasn’t in the crying mood. I was in the red-hot temper mood. I didn’t lose it all that often, but my blood was the blood of the Scots and we don’t take prisoners…

Miss Templeton then handed me a letter.

‘I’ll leave you alone to read it and then I’ll come back in about ten minutes Ma’am.’

‘Thanks,’ I said distractedly, fingering the letter that was addressed to David McKerrell in spidery handwriting...

Duality~Final Chapter

Angel

  Thinking that I would not get very far before the Honourable Lord Phillip was either found or had recovered his senses, I wasted little time in walking as fast as my skirts would allow…

I would like to thank Miss Jane Austen for the inspiration for this novella, which is based on a time prior to that which is described in Pride And Prejudice and involves a few of the characters in that great work.

Get A Life!~Chapter 12

After putting the scarf on over my hair, I felt a bit like Audrey Hepburn in that film, Roman Holiday and I just wished that I had her looks.

  By the time we reached home, it was obvious to me that my sister was very unwell and was in a high fever.
