Freaks

black cab (2)

I won Microcosms Flash Fiction short story competition this week with my first ever entry.  The rules required a story in no more than 300 words in response to any chosen line from a list of prompts. The story had to be written and submitted within a one day deadline. The prompt line that I chose was ‘There were so many things to do, to see, to be.’  My story ‘Freaks’ was judged to be the winner.  You can read it for free here at ‘Freaks’ or on the competition website at www.microcosmsfic.

Not Fade Away

AS64

Many thanks to Daphne Driver for allowing me to use her photo of the original 1964 Morecambe Winter Gardens poster (posted on Facebook – “Morecambe, Heysham and Lancaster past and present” site on 25 September 2018) to illustrate my teenage angst short story based on this show.  She tells me that she was there screaming until she developed a very bad throat.  Read it for free at Not Fade Away.

The next story  in the ‘Selwyn’ series should be ‘The Fee Generation Game’ to be published in the autumn edition of ‘The Terrier’ magazine. After that it will appear on my website. Selwyn is asked to do some temporary work with the Council which results in an unexpected encounter.

Weapon of Choice

Weapon of Choice

The next story  in the ‘Selwyn’ series should be ‘Weapon of Choice’ to be published in the summer edition of ‘The Terrier’ magazine. After that it will appear on my website. In his retirement Selwyn gives some very cynical advice to his successor about how to play the system in Local Government which produces a surprising result.
