The Choice

What if you lived in the perfect world where every thing was wonderful; the perfect wife and child? What if you then woke up and realised you’ve been living a lie?

Taken from my short story collection: Tales Further Out

A Sister’s Gift

Blurb: Gur is a few weeks away from his initiation into adulthood, and the Paratroopers, which has only heightened his little sister’s anxiety and hostile manner. So Gur takes Krista hiking in in a last effort to resolve his sister’s fears about their changing world, and to offer her the protection of a devoted friend to cover his absence. (Set in 2013)

One decision changes everything. Your life, and someone else’s too.

Choose To Kill is a dystopian short story (less than 2,000 words).


An easy, three-minute read, flash-fiction piece with (hopefully) a hard-hitting spiritual and emotional pay-off. The narrator reunites with a lost friend on the side of a lake after a long life of separation. But who is she exactly, and why did it take a lifetime for them to find one another?

Give it a shot. It’s short.


Bibiana, born into Roman nobility, finds herself at the end of the line, execution on charges of being an non-believer in the Roman deities. This is a short story, her death re-imagined in a style that is delicate, yet doesn’t shy away from the brutality of what really happened.

Give it a shot. It’s short.
(warning: does contain mature content, not in poor taste, but it is very sensitive. Please read with caution and with a pure heart.)


Br. Gabriel is an average seminarian struggling to stay awake through his daily hour of prayer to God. An uncanny contemplation leaves him slightly shaken. He touched the divine, but was the interior impact enough to bear fruit in his actions? Can he make the spiritual real?

Give it a shot. It’s Short.


This is a short story about when I was little and my mother and I walked over a mountain.

Nothing can stop fate


How did it happen? When and how did the situation get that chaotic? Well, I have no idea!
Everything happened too quickly, faster than a wink. I didn’t even have time to realize what was going on before I was stuck like that.
You’re probably wondering what’s going on… Right? Okay, what will happen next is a bit complicated because I, myself, couldn’t understand how we got here but then it happened …
And now, we’re stuck, me and one of the boys I hate the most on the roof of the school and the building below threatens to collapse at any moment. In fact, a poisonous gas has escaped in all parts of the school and the electricity ignites inside. In addition, no help can reach us as a result of all the damage and smoke caused by the fire.
How did we end up here? Well my dear friend, I will say it again: I have no idea!!
