The short stories published in the anthologies, and as single shorts, have all been previously published in print magazines and zines and/or podcast. They range in genre and there are SF, Fantasy, ghost, mainstream contemporary and my favourite historical stories. Some have been prize winners, some runners up but they all took a great deal of time and effort to write where every word has to count and carry the weight of the story. I find novels easier to write. Reviews are at each story's website, too many to squeeze on this page.

More Writer's Choice Shorts in preparation. Again they are ones 'the People's Friend' published.: A collection of historical short stories is in line for an anthology.

'Do I have to go to Japan?' is now available at amazon and smashwords.

'Man of Principle' is up at Smashwords and Amazon. This story was a literary competition prize winner.

'Tales From Old Japan', an anthology of Japanese Mediaeval stories is now published. All preorders have been fulfilled. Smashwords presales were amazing. I had such fun writing these stories using all my years in Japan soaking up the legends and myths and their unique history. I hope I've woven some of the enchantment and fascination into the stories.
