Everyone knows a female asshole. Narcissism isn’t exclusive to just one gender. Not. At. All.

Maxine heads a group of small business owners who specialise in photographing weddings. Most of the newer, inexperienced photographers who are breaking into this field, see her as an authority figure and look up to…

Not Everyone Makes It Back To Land After A Sea Voyage, Not Even Lovers On A Holiday Of Their Lifetime.

Two people began their love-journey on a yacht and sailed across a blue paradise but, a year later, only one of them returned. Was there an accident on the ocean, or did something more sinister happen out there?

Most people think of cruise-sailing to be a romantic and glamorous lifestyle…

I’d like to welcome you to my pit of evil happenstance. This is where the most innocent of people are lured away from the light and taken deep into the dark recesses of a primeval mind. May your stay be deadly.

Y’know, this dungeon of dark fiction in which I…

Sexual attraction is primeval, right? So are the feelings I get when a thunderstorm brews and unleashes hell. Both activate something deep within — at least it does for me. When the two of them meet at once, it’s far more than I can stand. That’s why I love doing…

The following is a love story — about a photographer and the weather event known as the tropical thunderstorm. Read now to get yourself wet.

I don’t watch movies in the Summer. My eyes devour storms instead. I prefer to sit on my porch and watch the thunderheads grow above…

We’re a married couple, but live without intimacy. In our thirties, our family and friends think we’ve chosen not to have children, but that’s far from the truth.

Last Christmas came and went without so much as a kiss, and I’m expecting the same to happen this Christmas. I nurtured…

Nothing comes from writing safe.

Frustrated writers locate them easy. Sitting behind a keyboard for hours at a time, experimenting with words, characters and plots, generate rabbit holes all the time. One character will go left while her friend turns right. Their life-courses diverge because of their independent choices. The…

Slamming down a phone receiver at the end of an angry conversation was so satisfying. Today’s phones don’t get slammed and may explain our poor mental health.

Don’t you hate not being able to slam a phone down in anger? Remember that wonderful feeling when plastic met plastic? Fury and action came together as one. It was noisy, aggressive and wonderfully final. Hanging up a phone today is so blah. We gently tap or swipe a piece…
