Coming Home for Christmas

(A second story because let's be honest I've neglected this poor site all year. Enjoy!) Inside she felt herself the equal of anyone on this earth, she was equal to anybody in this world, she was worthy of love and affection, she was someone - a daughter, a sister, a friend she had worth.  She...

Coming Home

A short story to get you in the festive mood... The chill of a December morning, packing up the car, full to the brim with cozy knits and sparkling presents.  Heading south on the dual carriageway after a pit stop for fuel, the car filled with petrol and a keep cup filled with a cinnamon...

Halloween is one of my favourite times of the year.  I wouldn't call it a holiday, but it is a celebration of Samhain, of the harvest, of lost souls and of all the things that could be!  I love the pagan idea of Halloween and the Mexican Dia de los Muertos, the blurring of the lines...

Daring to Believe

This time two years ago I had finally gotten my proof copies of my first novel, a book that I had sweated and cried over for five years.  It is a magical moment when you open the package to see what had very much been a figment of your imagination for five years; manifest itself...
