Hello Flenky - Letters To An Unborn Son

A father who probably needs psychiatric help, writes a funny letter to his unborn son laying out some "wisdom", where "wisdom" is stupidity. It's light hearted and I hope, comical. The anecdote about the fortune teller, that's real by the way. Really did happen to a friend of mine.

Emails From The Edge

Hello love! Dad here – how are you keeping? Your mum has told me to get out from under her feet so I thought I’d come in the study for a game of solitaire on the computer and drop you a line.

Ginger Tom

‘Hey! Get out of it!’
Ziggy was dumped unceremoniously onto the floor and promptly jumped up onto Katarzyna’s lap and began purring loudly, his eye’s half closed dreamily.
Without looking up from her magazine, Katarzyna drooled in her thick Polish accent, ‘He likes the bacon. You should pay attention on eating and not your newspaper if you not want to share, Rudy.’
‘Why do you call me Rudy?’ He questioned through a mouth part full of bacon he had shovelled in after Ziggy’s attempt to pilfer it.

Shelter From The Storm

A man loses his wife in a terrorist attack, cue grief and pain etc., yet in the search for understanding this pain, he awakens to life and to his power to create. A light read then, dealing with little things, loss and intellectual self awakening, but hope fully with some funny bits too.

The Crone

Here's a short story I wrote some time ago for players of the online game, the lord of the rings.

It was written with the goal of making people stop to think and immerse themselves a little more deeply in the world around them, as well as providing an unusual point of view, in that the protagonist wasn't really intended to be anything other than just another face in a crowd.

I hope you enjoy the read.

In Retirement

I’m in retirement, mused Clarence as he sat in the dark. He sat in the dark and mused a lot these days. He quite liked it most of the time; musing and having his own safe space most of the week and just pootling about with Samantha the rest of it. He liked Samantha. He hadn’t expected to. At 31 years young, he thought her inexperience and youth would not afford him the respect and proper treatment he deserved, what with him in his 41st year.
