Behind The Scenes: Last Drawer On The Right

This is the “Behind The Scenes” post for Last Drawer On The Right. Please read the original story first if you want to avoid spoilers… This one I wrote in a different manner to the others. Normally I have no idea what I’m going to write, and then lock myself away in the office Saturday […]

Behind The Scenes: Harold Green Is Dead

This was an odd one. I started feeling unwell on Thursday afternoon – some kind of stomach problem (I’m prone to them) – and this continued right through the weekend and into this week (in fact, I’m still fighting it this Thursday evening, a week later). Anyhow, I somehow made myself plough through it while flying on painkillers.

This is the “Behind The Scenes” post for the story “The Enemy Within. Please read the original story first if you want to avoid spoilers… First off, an apology for the lateness of this post.

Behind The Scenes: Xenon

This is the “Behind The Scenes” post for the short story “Xenon”. To avoid spoilers, please read the original story first. Of course the name came first.

Behind The Scenes: The Woman In The Water

This is the “Behind The Scenes” post for “The Woman In The Water“. Please read the original story first to avoid spoilers. This story was the first idea that I had and tried to write for this year of short stories. For some reason, it wouldn’t come then, and it wouldn’t come a few weeks […]

Behind The Scenes: Veronica

This is the “Behind The Scenes” for Veronica. Please read the original story if you want to avoid spoilers. Veronica came to me while walking the dogs, basically while looking for a story to write for the week. The idea came to me more or less fully formed, and all I had to do is […]
