Faux headlines, 31/05/19


From a five-star review of my recent book, The Narwhallama: “A fast paced story with one surprise after another. A fine mystery. Characters were kind and brave and selfish and cruel and surprising! I loved this story.”

From the readers’ comments on my Write Practice Spring Contest-winning short story, The Porthole: “a well deserved winner. Your imagination should be tapped for originality;” “The shifts and turns in your story is intriguing, again well deserved- fantastic story!”

I tend to blog fantasy-related articles once a week, and microfiction once every two weeks. To subscribe to the blog, use the form on the right-hand side of this page. Thanks!

These days I live nowhere near any standing stones or indeed any Neolithic sites. I miss being able to visit an ancient site at will. (Result: I take massive detours on long journeys just for that purpose).
