Jenny Anders

Jenny raced down the steep staircase to the seventh floor and slid, unseen, into the lift. The underground carpark was dank and dark when she emerged. Briefly, she paused, listening. “All clear,” she sobbed. A thick blanket of pristine snow covered the pavement. Running was impossible. The pain was excruciating. Tears slid down her cheeksContinue reading “Jenny Anders”


A short while ago, I joined a writer’s group; this was my first (actually my second) attempt at writing poetry, and possibly my last. Definitely not my forte. The beautiful colours of a spectrum, A rich red, orange, yellow and green, blue, indigo and violet The colour of a sandy beach and the fire ofContinue reading “Spectrum”

Death is the beginning!

I have memories of time spent playing in the attics of a large house; four stories with servant’s quarters on the top floor. I was wearing a white mid-calf length dress, frilly and old-fashioned; pretty ballet pumps made from soft leather, and stockings trimmed with fine hand-made lace. Black hair, styled in ringlets, cascaded downContinue reading “Death is the beginning!”


This story was penned by my late daughter, Lisa-Jane Stych. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Angela’s expression was chilling as she glanced at Jon when he admitted to being a vampire; “You feed on people?” “Vampires,” he whispered, “feed on humans. So yes, I do.” “And the Eldarns too?” “No.”Continue reading “Jon”


I introduced Teresa, her son Cain, daughter Belen at the end of Book 3 (Retribution). Terese is E’rón and Sa’eda’s daughter. They are two characters in the “The Elderns”. Protagonists are, IMHO, far more interesting, especially for the writer. This is the first scene from a short story which will be published on this blogContinue reading “Cain”

Glenn’s Dilemma

“Strange,” I murmured. That was my reaction when I arrived at the hospital. Strange as in the circumstances surrounding a young woman’s death, not the woman’s name which was Alice Strange. Dr. Jake Sanders delivered two babies, born within minutes of their mother arriving in A&E; twins named Cairn and Ruby. He glanced at meContinue reading “Glenn’s Dilemma”

It’s Never Too Late

Memories buried long ago surfaced as I entered the nightclub with Lucas and Elizabeth. I glanced around the large room, recalling my eighteenth birthday. It was my first visit to a nightclub. As we approached the bar, a gorgeous man met and held my gaze. Christine, a close friend from our school days, asked ifContinue reading “It’s Never Too Late”


Hoping that she wouldn’t attract Bran’s attention, the young woman moved into the shadows. Allison’s tinkling laughter irritated her, but it was her husband’s words that cut through her fragile confidence. “My wife is enthusiastic, but naive. She has little knowledge of how to please a man.” Tears ran down her pale cheeks as sheContinue reading “Miriam”
