I find it difficult to define my stories, but everything seems to fall into the broad category of “weird stuff”! I like exploring the unusual within the mundane: interesting psychology, strange events, the possibility of supernatural forces. Most of my short stories develop from a situation, a single moment which then determines character and plot.

Fighting On Home Turf was published in Confingo 2 in October 2014.
Someone’s Having A Laugh was published on shortstorysunday.com in April 2015.
I have also published 3 Lurm Valley Tales, loosely-linked short stories set in a fictionalised version of my native East Devon: Strong As A Winch Cable, Identity Theft and Over The Edge.
