Short stories

I love to write in any way. Short stories are a medium I love and I've written a few over the years. Clicking the links on this page will either open a PDF file of the story, or take you straight to the publication in which it can be found.

Experience Counts

"Experience Counts" is a 100-word story I entered into the July application of Morgen Bailey's 100-Word Comp. The theme was "A Mature Student" and the entries had to be exactly one hundred words long. My story placed third.

Lucy Green: Robotics Queen

This is a submission I wrote to a non-profit organisation who were looking to put together a series of books promoting STEM careers to primary school aged children. The brief was to make a relatable and engaging story that could be read by children aged nine to eleven.

Fine Lines

"Fine Lines" is a 100-word story I entered into the April application of Morgen Bailey's 100-Word Comp. The theme was "20:20 vision" and the entries had to be exactly one hundred words long. My story placed as "highly commended", which I was very proud of. You can see my shout-out here.

LY

"LY" is a piece of flash fiction I entered into the Christopher Fielden's Adverbially Challenged competition. It can currently be read online, or purchased through amazon.co.uk as part of the Adverbially Challenged Anthology: Volume 5.

Gethin, Get In

"Gethin, Get In" is another piece of flash fiction I entered, this time into the Christopher Fielden's Nonsensically Challenged competition, with the remit that the piece had to be nonsense to read, but still carry the structure of a story. It, too, can currently be read online or purchased through amazon.co.uk as part of the Nonsensically Challenged Anthology: Volume 3.

The Arborecide

One of my earlier pieces. It's rough around the edges - something I blame upon the fact that I wrote it whilst also raising a newborn baby. I like the story, though, and the cause is a great one. A friend of mine runs the anthology for The Carers Centre, Leicester. The Anthology - titled "From Bloom to Blizzard" - can be purchased for a donation (suggested £3) here.
