After a career of writing technical brochures and annual reports and press material I turned to fiction in 2012.
It wasn’t easy learning to write fiction after writing like a scientist for decades. So I am learning and enjoying it.
I write short stories and flash fiction and I am getting better all the time. I enjoy entering competitions for short stories and flash fiction. My success rate is extremely low but I persevere.
To date, here are my accomplishments
