I don’t write many short stories these days, but I do have a soft spot for AN HONEST REVIEW because it made the Longlist of the 2018/2019 Fiction Factory competition, then, because I loved the characters so much, it evolved into The Secret Lives of the Doyenne of Didsbrook. An Honest Review focusses on a meeting of the Didsbrook Authors and Writers Group and is a 12-minute read.
KARMA made the longest of the 2020/2021 Fiction Factory Short Story Competition. Ellen had high hopes for her future but is plagued by misfortune. Turning forty with two failed marriages behind her, downtrodden Ellen finally gets lucky.
