Small Fictions

“Tell all the truth but tell it slant.” Emily Dickinson

It’s not untrue to say writing short fiction changed my life. There I was grappling with truth as a journalist when one day I decided to try making things up. It was a transformational moment. Being a woman with an extremely short attention span I have so far found my fictional comfort zone well and truly embedded in the concision of micro and flash fiction, or stories under 1000 words. So here you’ll find a series of my stories in miniature. I love writing them and at this stage have no plans to branch out into anything longer, but we’ll see. This page is still very much a work in progress. Work forthcoming in Jellyfish Review, Night Parrot Press and others.
