Last month I submitted two stories, “Always the Children” and “The Dancing Suit” to the Narrator Magazine hoping that the editors might select one of them for their Spring edition of the magazine. I was very pleased to discover that both stories were picked up for publication in the magazine.
I usually write children’s fiction, but the magazine was asking for submissions for an adult audience. The first story, “Always the Children” is based on personal experiences during my time as a police officer. The second story, “The Dancing Suit” is a subtle horror story about a tuxedo, possessed by the essence of a very nasty man.
The first story is difficult to read and was even more difficult to write. Sometimes I still see that broken little girls face at night when I close my eyes. I had much more fun writing the second story.
If you are interested in reading the stories, the magazine can be read on-line at http://www.narratormagazine.com/
If you like the stories, take a few seconds to vote for your favourite in the “Peoples Choice Prize”
I hope you enjoy the stories. Back to writing for kids now…
