Some of my books will not be available as paperbacks. This is because they are a bit short so they are here as short-stories. I am making them available as ebooks in various formats for free here as well as on Kindle which you can buy through the kindle store (I have to charge for that because Amazon charge me to make my books available via whispernet – which is the delivery service Amazon use to send the book to your kindle device or app).

These are my short-stories and ebooks

  • Face to face with the gorilla king cover
  • Waiting at the bus stop cover
  • Photo of the Pando in Utah
  • Photo of bicycle with basket

Other short stories

Some of my short stories are only available via the website – because they too short to publish on their own. A list of those follows:-

Photo of Pando in Utah Though we are many – ages 9 – 12

“Are we alone?” she wondered aloud.  “Not entirely.” came the reply.  A short story for older readers about a young woman on a long-distance space journey who gets a rather unusual message from home.

Waiting at the bus stop – ages 7 – 9

“What superpower would you most like to have?”  – three children discuss this with surprising results. Also available as an audio-resource

Photo of bicycle with basket RTA – ages 13 and up

This is a short story I had published in The Londonist a few years ago. It deals with a road accident so it’s probably more suited to older readers.
