Believe it or not, I am a graduate (of the Open University) and have a BA in Humanities (I did combined Literature,Philosophy and History) and yet I have a terrible blind spot when it comes to punctuation and paragraphs (despite the fact
that I have a print-out of the rules of punctuation pinned to my wall, I just can never get a handle on commas/semi-colons/colons).
I've always loved the magic of language and storytelling. My favourite childhood books were Greek Myths,The Arabian Nights and European Fairytales and I still have an enormous fondness for them.
My great ambition would be to become a 21st Century Hans Christian Anderson.
I have had several poems published in various small press poetry magazines (and have even been paid twice - I still have the crisp £10 notes to
prove it because I refuse to spend them) but,unfortunately, I have never managed to get a story (or any other kind of prose) published.
I have 1140 stories in
22 collections on the site.
My stories have been read 217532 times
and 141 of my stories have been cherry picked
