One Word After Another, and … Repeat!

I have been writing stories, or scenes and dialogue from stories, for as long as I can remember.

Some were homework assignments, and were only ever seen by my teachers. Other pieces include works-in-progress, incomprehensible ramblings, frantically taken notes – most of which are illegible, and a few which express such thoughts as can never be revealed to another person. Over the years, I have also lost some of my writing through misplaced journals and crashed hard drives.

There is writing too from the years I naively believed my career as an author could only begin with a bestselling novel, the first of a popular series of fantasy books à la The Lord of the Rings. I continue to work on it but it is still some time away from being ready for an agent/publisher’s eyes.

It is only recently, however, that I have begun crafting pieces of fiction which I feel are good enough at least to submit here and there. Quite fortunately, a few of them have since been accepted for publication by various, incredibly gracious editors.

You will find all such works written by me on this page, whether published or coming soon. I will endeavour to update the list as frequently as possible, given I can somehow convince a few more editors into accepting my stories for publication.
