Having been a writer for nearly thirty years, I am fortunate in having a large collection of published stories.

Sometimes funny, sometimes painful, they are mostly two-minute reads with a moral and a message.

I’ve added a sample of them here to whet your appetite and a new story will be added every month.

Feel free to share on Facebook by posting the story as a link.
