I originally wrote this prior to the end of the world we were all expecting on December 21st but for one reason or another didn't get around to posting it. After experiencing the extreme heatwave in Sydney on Tuesday (nearly 43 degrees C) I feel slightly zombified, so I thought this story appropriate. Here it... Continue Reading →

Werewolf Alley

I saw this alleyway the other day and a little tale sprang to mind. Thanks so much for reading.... Frieda bought the warehouses for the alleyway. When she saw the ad online for two self-contained warehouses linked by an alleyway, suitable for commercial/industrial use, she couldn’t believe her luck. She had to hock everything she...

Friday The 13th Spookies

I don't know if I was imagining it but I saw a lot of spooky things today. An abandoned building that looked haunted... Powerlines everywhere just waiting to come down.... The crow. Trying to hide. But I saw him. I SAW him. Fixing me with his baneful eye...... The spider, plump in his sticky web.... Continue Reading →

Down The Steps

Another Hallowe'en tale for you. It is a little grisly. Thanks again for reading.... Luella knew she was damned. She could have walked away from Nona at any time, but she didn’t. She was weak, useless, she sickened herself; but she couldn’t stop. Nona had been a vampire for 6 months; bitten, drained and transformed... Continue Reading →

The Shadow Of The Rose

I'm writing some Hallowe'en stories this week which have been inspired by some images I have found in my local area. Maybe I live in a spookier neighbourhood than I thought..... Rudy hated roses because of her mother. Her mother had been the greatest rose grower the town had ever seen, growing everything from floribundas... Continue Reading →
