Fiction

Original short stories, by me. You’ll note there was quite a break in posting: I’ve been focusing on long form writing – a novel and a feature screenplay, to be precise – but I’m trying to do some short form stuff and get my work out there a bit more. Comments are most welcome, I’m here to learn!
