An excited author.
Aplogies if I sound a little hyper (and juvenile) but I am so incredibly excited as my first full length novel is out! It is called Banished and is available at:
I live in rural Oxfordshire (UK) and I am hooked on the drug of writing. Although books have always been a passion of mine I didn't start writing until December 2009 and now I can't stop.
I hope you enjoy the stories. I truly welcome feedback and read everything I'm sent.
Thank you for reading.

I usually don’t read short stories – heck I didn’t realize this was a short story But it was a great one! The saying that comes to mind is: “Short, sweet and to the point!” OK this story is far from sweet – but it was short and very much to the point.
I want to say that this is a poignant story and short enough to encourage teens to read it. Will it affect them – I really don’t know – but on the chance that it will affect 1 or 2 in a class of 30 – it’s worth it. It’s harsh in spots but it needs to be.
I definitely recommend this short story – but only to the older readers. But then again… when we’re dealing with the topic of bullying – what is old and young?
