Fiction story published!

Exciting this week as a short story of mine was published on Metromoms.net.
It is always thrilling when someone else reads your work and says that is good enough to pay for and share with others.
So I am now a published fiction writer in the United States of America.
Hopefully this might lead to the publishing of my more of my fictional efforts in the future!


With huge thanks to Helen Lowe who told me about duotrope.com as well as being frank, honest and encouraging.

5 Favourite Sights Seen

  • 1996 Watching tropical lightning turn night to day, outside a little wooden church in a small village in Sabah.
  • 2004 Flying down the Rainbow Valley at 8000ft in a cessna on a clear blue day.
  • 2003 Seeing and hearing Michael Schmacher rolling out of the pit garage in his Ferrari in Hungary.
  • 2009 Chancing upon 100 or more dolphins just off the Kaikoura Coast swimming around, jumping out of the water, doing somersaults and generally having fun.
  • 2006 Finding a pool at the bottom of a waterfall in the bush at Kaikoura that was full of playing baby seals.
