Short Story: I See You.

The program was yet to commence. I was early. I sat at the back near the entrance of the Church. At the far end of my pew sat a good-looking young couple, dressed in matching navy blue Ankara outfits. The lady looked at me with a narrowed gaze, and rested her limp arm around her...

I love books: ‘Goldfish have no hiding place’ by James Hadley Chase.

If you enjoy books about Crime, misadventures, people getting themselves... Continue Reading →

She knew that she would find him in his favourite chair in the sitting room which faced the television at a perfect angle, wearing the glazed and perpetually weary expression of an...

Writing Fiction: Friends, Family, Foes.

For God's sake, give your character's fake names (I have a notebook where I've made a list of names of characters for future stories). 2. If/when referring to real-life situations, be creative: if a situation happened to a lady you know, write the fictional version from a man's perspective if possible. 3. Even if you...
