The Feline Agony Aunt

The human’s notes: The Little Furry Muse has informed me that her followers need her. There are too many cats in this world struggling with difficult-to-train humans, and it is her duty to assist where she can, both to ease the lives of cats everywhere, and to ensure the population is better prepared for the […]

It’s short story week, and Beaufort Scales is baaack! Head on over to read Beaufort Scales & the Case of the Poisoned Cupcake (Part 1): A Cosy Mystery (With Dragons), or read on for a few ramblings. I honestly don’t know what more I can add to the title of the story. That’s pretty much […]

Last Friday I found myself sitting down to watch Sharknado, which is something I never thought I’d actually do. As much as I have a soft spot for bad horror movies (deliberately bad ones, like Peter Jackson’s zombie flick Braindead, or the hilariously twisted Black Sheep), I was pretty sure that anything that involved sharks […]

Short story week is here, so head on over to CyberKitty 2.1 to get started, or read on for some behind the scenes (and more cat photos. Perfect excuse, really). I obviously have cats and world domination on the brain at the moment. This is a story I’ve been thinking about writing since my Sci-Fi […]

Short story week is back! A little more back story to the BBN this time – or maybe round story would be a better way to describe it. Either way, you can head over to read The Perils of Being Useful , or read on for some side story to the round story. Or something. I’ve […]

Yes, it is technically short story week. But it’s my blog and I can change things if I want. Okay, truthfully? I’m behind again on my short stories, and although I have three written and one half written, I’m not entirely happy with any of them. Plus, Edinburgh. If you’re on social media with me (hi!) […]

New short story is up now, so if you’d prefer, jump straight across to read Coffee, Cake, & Ghoulets. Otherwise read on for a little about the writing process itself! Stories are slippery things, as I’m sure I’ve said before. They never sit where you put them, or follow the course you have in mind […]

The significant human (SH) is ‘tired’. It’s her own fault – she will insist on staying up all day when there are sunny spots to be napped in. All it means is that she oversleeps for my first breakfast, and I have to wake her. I don’t want to wake her, but what can I […]

It’s short story week, so jump straight across to read The Pie of Hate, or read on for a little background on the story. Either way – enjoy! “A sous chef makes a pie. Inside is hatred.” So went the prompt from the Magic Realism Bot, a twitter account that posts random, disjointed ideas that […]

I won, I won! I’d like to thank the little furry muse, chocolate, tea – wait. Sorry, no. Not that sort of award. Although I’m pretty chuffed anyway. The lovely A.S.Akkalon nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award (isn’t it cool? And shiny??), and I’m both enormously flattered and a little intimidated, because I feel […]
