I have been writing frantically for 10 years and still enjoy being part of two writing groups. I am inspired by anything and everything and enjoy writing about ordinary people; but usually they find themselves experiencing strange events!
When I was encouraged to tackle a novel my daughter suggested I use my short story 'Brief Encounters of the Third Kind' as she wanted to know what happened to Emma, whose fate had been left in the air at the end of the story. The novel became a trilogy, Three Ages of Man and finally Lives of Anna Alsop, published in March 2015.
I enjoy writing fiction of any length and have had many short stories published online. I have just published myfourth collection of short stories Someone Somewhere which includes two novellas. I also write a regular blog 'Sandscript' at www.goodreads.com. My website www.ccsidewriter.co.uk long ago took on a life of its own with new words and pictures regularly; visit to read short stories and other items.
