Fiction in a Flash

WELCOME my website dedicated to Short Stories and Flash Fiction.

Here you will find a range of collections from the quirky, light-hearted tales in

Light Bites Confessions and Wingin' It...

          to the dark, psychological subject matter of 

Peace and Disquiet , Minor Discord and

The Darkening

Wind Blown is my very latest collection of microfiction.


If you only have time for a quick visit, you might like to sample some flash...

                                                                                   Just click on the tabs above...

There is also a small selection of published poetry

I also have websites for

Tiny Tales, Children's Fiction and (more)Poetry.
