Additional DescriptionMore Details

It was one of those cold but clear winter mornings just hovering on the brink of spring. I could almost smell the sunshine, it was so bright and yet a touch of fog dusted the treetops and roofs of the village. I smiled as I walked, the anticipation of golden days infecting me with something approaching joy. Through the thinning, floating mist my father pedalled towards me on his ancient bicycle.

Dear John – Angela Pickering

2600 words Ghost / Feel Good

Carly is beginning to have doubts about her relationship with Dave. These days they seem to have very little in common. When she buys an old writing bureau in a charity shop, he becomes interested in her planned restoration. Is there something about the old desk that will help them to resolve their differences?

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The writing desk stood in the hall waiting for her attention. Carly danced through her housework anticipating the moment when she could start on the restoration. She smiled to herself as she remembered the sight of Dave’s face when she threw open the tail gate of the car to reveal her latest charity shop purchase. ‘What on earth have you bought now?’ he said, putting his hands on his hips and tipping his head to one side. ‘A desk? An old-fashioned one at that.’ ‘It’s more of a bureau,’ she murmured. ‘Help me get it indoors.’

Hell’s Fairy – Angela Pickering

1600 words Fairytale

Barbara is justifiably proud of her mothering skills. Her son is a charming young man. So much so that he has attracted the attention of a distraught mother from Fairyland who needs help with her own boy, Alphonse, who wants to be a Hell’s Angel.

This story is included in the collection Thrice Upon a Time

Additional DescriptionMore Details

The room chilled suddenly and then brightened as if filled with cold winter sunshine. Barbara raised her head from her book, senses alert. Something strange had entered her space, bringing with it the scent of forests damp after unexpected rainfall, something alien. Eyes wide, she gazed around the study. Everything seemed normal, despite the messages she was receiving from her pounding heart. Her desk was as it should be; the computer humming, work on her latest book progressing nicely, everything in its proper place. A cup of tea was cooling next to a plate of her favourite chocolate biscuits on the coffee table.

The Merrow – Angela Pickering

2000 words Fairlytale

Katy meets a young lad on the beach whilst on holiday with her parents. He fills her head with stories of the mer-folk and adventures under the sea. Twenty five years later she returns with her own children and tells them her stories of the magical beach.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

‘What’s a merrow, Mum?’ I asked, shaking sand from my sandals onto the kitchen floor. ‘It’s a kind of vegetable, Katy, and stop doing that. I’m trying to keep the place nice so there won’t be too much to do when we go home.’ I was puzzled. The holiday had only just started, and Mum was already thinking about going home. But there were more pressing matters for my ten-year-old brain to worry about. ‘A vegetable? On the beach?’ ‘Huh? What are you on about?’ Mum was mopping the floor in a little circle around the spot where I stood.

Undercover Fae – Angela Pickering

2200 words Fairytale

With fairies disappearing from the Greenwood, the Fairy Queen is understandably concerned. Meriel, fairy detective, is assigned the case despite her human sympathies, or perhaps because of them, What will her investigations reveal? Where have the fairies gone and why? Perhaps even the Little People aren’t above a little skulduggery.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

When she called me into her office, she was wearing huge rollers in her hair. They were those heated ones, and I could tell because her little face was all crimson from the heat. ‘I’m not sure that’s a good idea,’ I warned her, but she shook her head as much as the rollers would allow. ‘Magic doesn’t solve everything,’ she said, as if I didn’t know that. She gestured me into a chair. I narrowed my eyes, and waited for the blow to fall. The boss doesn’t call for me that often and when she does, it’s time to duck. Metaphorically speaking, of course; fairies don’t use physical violence on one another.
