Short Stories & Flash Fiction

I write whenever and wherever I can to keep up with writing something each day. This habit takes form in short stories and flash fiction, some of which I upload onto my posts / blog page, and which I have listed at the bottom of this page for you to read, for free. I don’t follow a particular writing genre as I find this would limit my options, but I do try to add an element of humour if it suits the story.

Why short stories and flash fiction? Well, I needed to start somewhere and I’ve read some pretty useful advice on starting the writing process with short fictional work. So far it’s proved useful. And some great people in literature wrote short stories, such as Ian Fleming, Roald Dahl, Jules Verne, Phillip K. Dick, Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King… The list goes on but you get the idea.
