“Why are you the way that you are?”

We laugh at the unashamed hatred Michael Scott directs Toby Flenderson’s way on The Office, but perhaps it’s a question we should permit ourselves to ask more often.

It’s certainly the question I’m asking myself now, at this gorgeous c...

Only when night left my room in shadow did I feel her settle beside me, alert but feather light, how she always began.

“Piper, wake up. Pip, pip, pip.” Her calls fell in droplets over the same spot of me—again, again, again—a fine-tuned torture process designed with one...

Yesterday was the announcement of the 2018 Alan Marshall Short Story Awards - and I was over the MOON to be awarded the Local Prize for my short 'With Or Without Us'.

So there's this game. I know it all too well, and you're likely to have played it a few times too. It's called I'm Good Thanks.

How it works is - someone poses the question, "How are you?" or... "How have you been?" or... "You sure you're okay?" And you reply - "I'...

We were sitting in a quaint Indian restaurant, dimly lit with only one other table occupied. It was the sort of place where the staff attend to you as if they're afraid you'll walk out if they so much as glance away.

We swiped at curries with our frighteningly garl...
