Welcome to ‘Tales from the Water’s Edge’. From this page you can access some of my latest fiction for adults. Many of these stories are also to be found on my Medium page.
As you’ll soon discover, I like to write about the humour – and sometimes the drama – that can emerge from everyday situations and conversations.
My stories also tend to have a very strong sense of place. Not just for its own sake, but because I think that where something happens is significant for what happens and how we interpret it. Place sets our mood, and we humans are emotional creatures.
I like to write about places that I know, especially the place which I have called home for the last 20 years: the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula in coastal Victoria, Australia.
I hope that you enjoy these ‘Tales from the Water’s Edge’. If you do (or even if you don’t), please take a moment to leave a comment below and say ‘Hi’.
