Since my early teens I have read fiction avidly, particularly quality fiction. As I had written reports and feasibility studies all my professional life, I thought writing fiction would be easy by comparison. How wrong I was.
I took up writing fiction seriously when I retired from corporate life in 2009. I then spent a whole year analysing different methods, tips and tricks employed in writing novels and short stories. Only then did I feel competent enough to put pen to paper in earnest. I embarked on my first novel, Through Glass Eyes, and learned a lot more along the way!
My preferred format is the short story, flash fiction in particular (to write a complete story in less than 1000 words can be extremely challenging!) Fortunately, I have been reasonably successful with my short stories. Here is a list of my ACHIEVEMENTS. In the WRITING section there are several examples of my shorter work. I trust you will find them engaging.
I also enjoy writing novels and have completed four so far. In 2018, I began researching my fifth, a story set in India in the year immediately prior to independence. Writing is scheduled to commence soon and I am aiming for publication in late 2020.
You can find my published novels and short story books in the NOVELS/SHORT STORIES section.
