Dressmaker

From the collection Dreamin’ Dreams; A short humourous story in 3,600 words.
Moss Scanlon was sitting on his stool in his Harnessmaker’s shop, busily repairing a donkey saddle, when he heard the thud from the room above. He didn’t have time to react. A fraction of a second later he was slapped on the head by a lump of plaster the size of a dinner plate and enveloped in a cloud of grey flakey dust.

About Brendan Gerad O'Brien

Brendan Gerad O’Brien was born in Tralee, on the west coast of Ireland and now lives in Newport, South Wales with his wife Jennifer and daughters Shelly and Sarah.

As a child he spent his summer holidays in Listowel, Co Kerry, where his uncle Moss Scanlon had a Harness Maker’s shop, now long gone.

The shop was a magnet for all sorts of colourful characters. It was there that his love of words was kindled by the stories of John B. Keane and Bryan MacMahon, who often wandered into the shop for a chat and bit of jovial banter.

After serving nine years in the Royal Navy, Brendan progressed to retail management, working as a Department manager with the UK’s second largest Supermarket.

Now retired, his hobby is writing short stories, twenty of which have already been published individually over the years, and also as a collection called Dreamin Dreams

Dark September is his first full novel
