New short story – ‘They Need To Learn’

Another short story for you. After a serious one last time (Waiting), this time I’ve gone for something lighter (you’ll understand when you get to the end). It’s called They Need To Learn, and you can read it here.

I’ve got over thirty short stories on the site now, so if this one piques your interest, try a few others. The full list can be found here.

I’m also working on an e-book of the first twenty stories‌—‌ideal if reading web-pages isn’t your thing.  Hopefully, that should be out in a few days (maybe even by the time you read this).

And, as always, I’d love to hear what people thought of this story, or any of the others. Add a comment on the page, or send me an e-mail.

Enjoy reading.

‘Life Story’ – new short story

Life Story is a new short, free to read here.

Everyone tells stories. When you tell someone what you’ve done that day, it’s a story. When you relate a tale from your childhood, you’re a storyteller. But stories always have an angle. And sometimes, the stories we tell are fabrications.

But any story, once told, is alive.

You are the story you tell.

Read Life Story here, and check out more free shorts here. And, as usual, I’d love to know what you think.

New short story – ‘The Pinnacle’

It’s time for another short story. The Pinnacle is the story of two once-friends on a climbing trip. Or possibly it’s about maturity verses remaining carefree. Then again, it might be about the lengths people travel to protect what they believe to be important.

No, scrap all that. It’s close to 1000 words for your enjoyment. Read into it whatever you want.

But, as always, I’d love to hear what you think of it.

Read the story here, and don’t forget the full list of short stories here.
