Two tales for small children

Today I have added two read too stories for small children.

Perhaps they might be suitable for bedtime reading?

The first is called “Millie meets Ethan” and is a tale about who gets a birthday present of a huge cuddly toy called Millie the Spaniel.

The second is called “Harry Tallboy and Fairy Swish” and is about a boy who loves trains.

Both are available in hard copy, (free of charge), just let me know using the Contact Form.

A Christmas tale and another upgrade.

I have also added an upgraded version of “The Glasmigos”, a version which has benefited from the editing of my friend Kareth Paterson.

Two new tales and an upgrade

Today I have added “Race Night Nerves“ and “Best Served Cold”.

Both are tales of revenge.

I have also replaced “Fidelity“ with a new version edited by Kareth Paterson, a friend from Writers’ Circus who has been toiling in the fields - nae jungle - of my verbose prose for some time now.

This version is much tighter, fewer errors, I hope.

Any remaining clangers are of course down to me.

A winter’s tale

This is an off-beat tale of an urban fox in winter.

At 1,000 words,”While we were sleeping” can be devoured with morning coffee and a naughty biscuit.

A mini-thriller

I have added “State Secret”.

This is a piece which seemed easy to write but initially was full of holes.

It has been greatly improved by the excellent editing of my friend Kareth Patterson, from Writers’ Circus. Any remaining typos etc are mine.

I could not resist adding a role for Maisie Kaywood.

Perhaps will see Dymitri of this story on an another outing soon?

The Swinging Sixties

This little boy meets girl romance has its basis in my time working as an apprentice in Alexander Stephen and Sons shipyard at Linthouse, on the banks of the River Clyde.

I have not yet been to Benidorm but I did hear of many exploits from my fellow apprentices.

Read “The Glasmigos

Despite the rigours of shipyard life common in those days, Stephens (Stevies) was a good place to serve an apprenticeship, providing excellent training for apprentices.
