I am a member of Pomona Writers Group which meet weekly. Our facilitator selects a topic for homework each week to write no more than 500 words. These topics are the stories I wrote during 2013. Hope you enjoy.Everybody has secret and everybody tells lie, but in case of Harry Wright these are both bigger than he had originally intended. What started out as a bit of fun, a distraction from his otherwise boring life that could come back and bite him on the ass if he isn’t careful. If being found isn’t enough there are other worries for Harry. First there's the disappearance of Emily Baxter a woman who seems to have no connection to Harry Wright, except that he's got the keys to her house. Then there's the mystery of why Harry is getting cheques from an insurance company that are intended for Emily Baxter. Has he done her in for the money or has he squirreled her away somewhere so that he can force more money out of her? Detective Inspector Peters certainly thinks that Harry Wright has killed Emily Baxter and is now fraudulently cashing her cheques. But if he has done so there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of a body, or even of a struggle at her house that seems to be as tidy and pristine as when she left. If she isn’t dead then where is she? And what has Harry Wright done with her?Revelations of Harry Wrights true identity could lead to the unlocking of this mystery, but will it lead to his downfall or to his imprisonment?

Each week in 2014 I attended the Pomona Writers Group. The facilitator asked us to write a story about a topic he chose. These stories less than 500 words are OMR (One Minute Read). I hope you enjoy reading each one."A Reason to Live" is a free ebook short story.It takes place a few months before the events of "By Virtue Fall," the first song in the "Shadowdance" action/ urban fantasy saga. If you've read "By Virtue Fall," This story provides insight into the motivations of the characters within.If you're new to the "Shadowdance" saga, "A Reason to Live" is a good way to enter this urban fantasy world.

During 2010 I fell into a hole with my writing. A notice in a local magazine advertised the Pomona Writers Group which meets each Tuesday morning at Pomona Community House calling for new members. I decided to attend. These weekly meetings have become a Godsend for me to reignite my writing ambitions.At the first induction to the group the facilitator handed out:‘Helpful Hints For Creative Writers’. ‘To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong’. Among other things were - keep writing – don’t edit on the run – when the inspiration stops and the pen rests that is the time to edit and rewrite. This is sound advice for any writer and finally words of wisdom:Practice, Practice, PracticeEnjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy. I hope you enjoy reading these stories.
