Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

Another triumph for the Doctor!

Always one to rise to a challenge, I recently entered and won the ‘Shaggy Dog Story’ mini-saga competition set by Helen Yendall. The brief was to write a maximum of 250 words and include ‘bone’, ‘dog’, ‘collar’ and ‘stray’ in any form.

How the Doctor came into it, you’ll discover by reading  A Timely Solution, now available on my Stories and Poetry page.

Helen has already sent me an Amazon gift voucher, which I promptly spent! The other part of my prize, a full critique of a short story, awaits. Thank you, Helen, for your generosity.
