Me Time

cropped-rtemagicc_sue-healy.jpg

 

I’ve got a younger colleague who is rather plugged in to all things techie and ITish – and thanks to his urging, I’m now not only twittering, but also looking at doing some links to pdfs of my stories and perhaps a kindle collection down the line (thanks again, Dan!). In the meantime, if any of you are interested, here are some stories of mine already published online.

The Last of the Shower – A quirky and nostalgic punk looks to wake his dead bandmate: HISSAC Highlands and Islands Short Story Association Competition has ‘The Last of the Shower” on their site (which won the2011 Award).

Grapefruit – An over-privileged youth is accused of a sexual misdemeanour. Winner of the Meridian Award.

Ha-Ha A blackly comic story, with a twist. A runner up in the Limnisa/Bluethumbnail Competition:

The Pretender – A tale with a twist and intrigue, which was ‘highly commended’ in the Twisted Stringybark competition. ‘The Pretender’ can be downloaded as part of an anthology:

Thanks for the interest!

    Hi Sue,
    It was reading one of your earlier posts on the Haiku that got me thinking about Twittering again, and probably unconsciously inspired my last blog entry as well. look forward to reading those stories.
    Regards

    I’ve read and enjoyed two of your very good stories, Ha-Ha and The Last of the Shower, from links on previous posts. I just read Grapefruit. What a powerful story. Chilling and very moving. The character’s voice is so vivid. I had trouble locating the link to The Pretender, sorry to say. I hope you have a novel or story collection in progress. I love your writing and hope to read more in the future!
