Author has written 14 stories for General, Humor, General, Romance, Humor, Sci-Fi, and Nature.

Having long been active on fanfiction net (https://www.fanfiction.net/u/1504263/Virtuella), I've decided to sign up here to give some of my original writing an airing and hopefully find an audience. I write all sorts of things, so I hope you'll find something you enjoy.

I am a middle-aged school teacher living in Scotland.

I have a story, Solstice of Doubt, entered into the Echo of Another World writing contest in honour of Terry Pratchett. If you like it, please vote for it here:

Life is a box of chocolates (Anthology) by alltheeagles reviews
