Chuffed to bits to have had a flash fiction published by the wonderful Visual Verse. Their journal provide a photo prompt, and you have to respond to it within an hour with a flasher a poem within 50-500 words.

It’s a great idea, and they publish all of the stories and poems together as one mini anthology online. My flash inspired by the picture, ‘The Dot on the Horizon Isn’t the Sun’ is in Volume Three, Chapter Three, and is available to read following this link here: ‘The Dot on the Horizon Isn’t the Sun’.

‘She’s Saving it for Me’ and ‘Carnations’ Published in Issue #3 of Firefly Magazine!

Two of my flashes have now been published by Firefly Magazine in their third issue and are available to read online now!

‘She’s Saving it for Me’ has been selected as their featured flash, which is truly wonderful! The story is about a man and a female busker. The tale is innocent, or unsettling, I’ll let you decide…

‘Carnations’ is a story I’m glad has now found a home. It’s a tender tale, and I don’t want to say more as it will really give it away.
