Flash Fiction Post 113 – It Takes One to Know One

Morning everyone. I hope you’re having a great weekend. Mine’s been mixed. The Lions lost and so did the Blitzboks, but Federer and Man U both won. On average that’s… well, average! And it’s better late than never for my story this week. I’ve been tangled up last week with Vat Returns and Provisional tax payments and getting all my paperwork ready to capture the 2018/19 financials for my wife’s company. So writing has been […]

Flash Fiction Post 109 – We Saved the Best for Last

Morning Everybody. This week I decided to complete a sequence of stories that I have written about Fairies at the bottom of the garden. They feature Tony, a rather shy and lonely eight year old who finds fascination and excitement in nature. If you wish to remind yourself of what has come before, you will find the three previous stories in my Blog archives as follows: Story One – Close Encounter, published in Flash Fiction […]


Flash Fiction post 108 – Re-evaluation

Afternoon all. I have been quite busy since I last spoke to you all. (Including last weekend in Cape Town) So I have written the latest installment of Forced Removal over several days. Jamie, Robert and Laura report back on their findings on Baltra and this results in a re-evaluation of the surveys and the terms of reference of the study on Baltra. Not surprisingly therefor, this installment is called Re-evaluation. Read all the Messages […]


Flash Fiction Post 107 – Only the Good Die Young

Afternoon all. Nearly back to normal after the break and back to work. It’s taken me a couple of days to reset my brain and get my paperwork back in order so now I’ve got another story for you. It’s my final 12 in 12 entry for 2018 – a return to my James Blind, the Man from AUNTI character. This is a thriller with a nasty twist in the end and I had 1200 […]
