The Park Bench


So we sat there holding hands and eating our burgers with our free ones and it was nice. All the time though I was worried that it wouldn’t last though. You see, officially I’m a boy...

  Then there were the times when I felt angry and frustrated at the least little thing. Was it normal for a boy, for regretfully I was one under my finery, to have such strange feelings?

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.

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?

Get A Life!~Chapter 10

Stopping writing

For some time now I haven’t been very happy with the response to some of my writing, in particular the last two novels Duality and Get A Life!

The Charity Shop


I nearly had a heart attack as I turned around and saw the lady looking at me with a slight smile playing on her lips...

‘Well Chloe, we meet again.’

A Letter To Santa


It was dark, very dark and she was scared, as she didn’t really like the dark.
She had a little torch under her bed covers and she had tried very hard to stay awake.…

I went on my way, puzzled at who the child was and why he or she was apparently following me. Or was I being followed? Maybe it was just a coincidence or I was becoming paranoid...

Being a thick talentless writer...

I am stuck once again on the way something should be written.

In trying to write the next chapter of Get A Life, I am in a bit of a quandry as to how I should write this:

Get A Life!~Chapter 5

Ma McTavish was standing at the door of her delightful (not) B&B. She didn’t look very happy.

She was holding a heavy wooden rolling pin and it looked like she meant business...

Working Girl~Dreams Are Like Angels

I wasn’t too bad looking. At 20 and a bit years old, I didn’t have those nooks and crannies that some women have when they get a bit older. Things hadn’t started to go south yet either, you know, droopy boobs, saggy tummy and a bum that looked like orange peal...
