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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

If you’d like to hop straight to this week’s short story, away you go – it’s The Sock Monster. Enjoy! Honestly? I hate wearing socks. I hate wearing shoes. Every year when it starts getting cold I go through this novelty factor period, where I love putting my boots on, much the same as I love […]

I have a reasonably good sense of direction. I don’t mean I have a compass inside my head that points infallibly North, but I can generally find my way back to hotels in strange cities, I can normally figure out shortcuts that actually are shortcuts when hiking, and if there’s a body of water anywhere […]

This week’s short story is a dive into the back story of the BBN – we’re re-joining Kate this time, to see how she’s managing after A Problem of Cats and The Thing in the Drain. She’s now dealing with A Commotion in a Bedroom, or, rather, someone else is trying to make sure she doesn’t find […]

It’s short story week, and we’re returning to Beaufort Scales, High Lord of the Cloverly dragons and quite possibly the most exasperating creature for a clever young dragon to try and manage. Hop right in and read Beaufort Scales & the Toot Hansell WI straight away, or read on for a little background to the […]

It’s short story week, so no need to read all the guff about inspiration and creativity if you don’t fancy it – hop straight on over to The Hole in the Lawn and get reading! Okay, there’s not actually going to be an awful lot of guff for you to wade through – mostly because […]
