Short stories and novels
Chris is the classic single millennial in the city of London. He has a good job, good prospects, but is struggling to keep his head above the waterline in the hustle and bustle of the Big Smoke. An opportunity to advance at work holds great promise, and the chance encounter with Linda hold great promise. But will he be forced to sell out a good friend to get what he wants, and will global financial markets threaten to conspire against his plans?
Caleb is on his way to a dazzling career as a lawyer in London, while Emily is holed up in a hospital waiting to die from cancer. Their starting points are dramatically different, but their fates merge, and for a brief moment a connection is made.
With a nod to the short story Landlord of the Crystal Fountain by Malaki Whitaker, this story follows Crispin who is on his way to the wedding of a distant cousin. A random encounter means that he never gets there, but ends up somewhere else entirely. This is a story about the power of chance and having the desire and courage to jump into the unknown. Everyone has that desire in some measure, but few act on it.
Published November 2016, initially as an open source story free for everyone.
