I’m not a prolific writer of short stories, but have written several over the years, some of which have won prizes and/or been published. Funnily enough, not all of my short fiction is fantasy/supernatural. And the most ‘successful’ are mainly non genre – hope there’s not a message in that! Those listed here are all published:
- The Seagull – won a first prize at Winchester Writers’ Conference, which included publication in Writers’ Forum magazine
- Fog – runner up in one of the monthly online comps formerly run by the now defunct BBC Kent website
- People of the Trees – commissioned for a Virgin Doctor Who anthology, Decalog 2
- Blondes Have More Fun – won 2nd prize in the first joint PCS/Words short story competition and was published in the booklet of winning entries.
A couple of years ago I produced some short-shorts for the SFF Chronicles forum, in the 75 word and 300 word challenges. I posted them on this page to begin with, but it was getting a bit unwieldy as more were added, so you can find them at present on the separate Short Shorts page.
