Brilliant cover art by Linus Andersson (www.artstation.com/nplillustration) I'm stoked to announce I have a new short story called 'The Shadow of Something Real' published in the latest zine from Underground Writers.

These Uncertain Times: Part 6 of 6

Waves crashed against sand, collapsing into white foam before retreating back into the ocean. Cara squinted at the sun, high in the sky, until Oscar’s shadow leaned across her. “You’ll go blind.” “Good.” Cara reached up and pushed against Oscar’s forehead. Oscar kept a straight face as she gripped each of his cheeks in her… Continue reading These Uncertain Times: Part 6 of 6

These Uncertain Times: Part 5 of 6

Laying on his side Oscar watched the sunlight peek weakly through the slats of the venetian blinds.

She silently counted down in her head and peered directly up at the sun,… Continue reading These Uncertain Times: Part 3 of 6

These Uncertain Times: Part 2 of 6

Lines of fluorescents stretched from one side of the long empty ceiling to the other, weaving between crawling metal piping. On the ground marked in tape were bright red Xs, telling the crowds where to stand as they waited at the foot of a shopping aisle. Three back from the front of the queue, Oscar… Continue reading These Uncertain Times: Part 2 of 6

These Uncertain Times: Part 1 of 6

It was as if the suburb in which they lived had a special forcefield around it, a bubble of energy that emanated from a central point. Layers of invisible barriers grew outward from the centre, gradually growing weaker as they drifted further away from the source. Cara drove inward, body exhausted by work. Tiredness rolled… Continue reading These Uncertain Times: Part 1 of 6
