Currently at university, I like writing longer stories since I’m one of those people that enjoy adding detail but love the challenge of trying to write short stories! Really giving me a mental workout! Umm… I have arms, legs a head…all the bodily functions and am obviously terrible at writing about myself!

Stories

  1. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt9

    A grotesque half-man, half-beast, is crouched next the window, his limbs long and thin, his skin black as liquorice and as dry as parchment. Spans of skin stretch along the length of his arms, joining at his back. His face holds a fresh fear, sharp poi...

  2. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt8

    “Catalina,” a voice whispered her name, the sound slithering around her, making her shiver, “Cataliiinnaaa,” it sings, repeating itself again and again, it was not a sound that was welcoming, but one that intended to frighten. A...

  3. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt7

    Some time has passed*** “Mama, I’m home,” the woman called. She heard no reply, the house was silent, “Mama?” She padded into each of the rooms on the ground floor, “Papa?” It made no sense, her mother should ...

  4. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt6

    Troublesome was not the word to describe the creature that haunted their village every night. Terror was not the appropriate word to describe just how severe the fear was among the people living there. The young woman glanced over her shoulder as she w...

  5. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt5

    Making her way to a small knot of gossiping older women, she heard small segments of whispers – “Just gone,” said one woman, “Nothing but an empty pallet and open window,” said another. The young woman’s fears were g...

  6. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt4

    She pulled on her leather skin boots, fastened a dark cloak over her shoulders to ward off the chill of the wind, and tucked her messy unbound blond hair into a cap. With a deep breath, and her throbbing finger concealed by her crossed arms, she steppe...

  7. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt3

    The two women hold their breath, praying that something should save them. A deadly hush falls and with a sudden predatory shriek the creature takes its leave, the sound of leather beating the wind growing gradually fainter. Dawn was coming. The two wom...

  8. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt2

    For she was hardly a child, 18 winters old – 19 within the next full moon – and had the voluptuous body of a woman, not the slight frame of a mere girl. She sighed quietly to herself. Not a moment later, her hand slipped and she made a shal...

  9. Becoming the Bride of Dracula Ch1 Pt1

    The young woman woke up to her mother’s calls for the morning breakfast preparation. She grumbled sleepily as she shuffled down the creaking wooden steps, stretching her arms and trying to wake up. Before she entered the kitchen area, she made he...

  10. Underwater

    I sat in the rocking boat, clad in my wetsuit with my oxygen tanks heavy on my back. I slipped my goggles over my eyes and shuffled a little further to the edge of the boat, my flippers slapping clumsily together as my feet knocked together. I took a b...

  11. Asylum

    I stood in front of the steel doors that barred my way in to the nameless decrepit building. My trembling hand stretched out in front of me, hesitating. Fingers met the cool steel and pushed them forward silently. I took a step on to the dusty floor, i...

  12. Gone

    Tendrils of mist crept along the ground, clawing their way slowly toward the decrepit house in the withering village. It snaked under the doors and through the cracks in the window frames. In a dark room, a pretty young woman lay sound asleep. Her hand...

  13. Madness Abandoned

    She flew at the door, rattling the handle though the lock had long since rusted shut in its slot. She screamed madly, eyes wild, hair flying around her face. Her hands moved from the door handle to banging on the wooden door, rattling the whole frame. ...
