My short story writing began many years ago when I entered New Zealand's Sunday Times' competition for offerings of that ilk. Over the years the competitions have lessened and my formalised day-dreams have only been shared with a very small coterie of friends and family.  Stepping out of the shadows I am now going to progressively load them on to this website.  Beginning with three, I will put a new one up each month with an audio version ... until I run out, possibly mid-2025.

If you like reading or listening to the stories then feel free to shout me a cuppa, a pint or better yet, take me out to tea! Your generous donation lets me know you're enjoying my musings as well as encouraging me to keep sharing more. Your support means a lot, and will help pay the subscriptions for Webflow, Mailchimp and Adobe, all of which are needed to expedite this venture.
