An unconvincing private investigator, a smoking black cat, and an inner child at his wits' end. A trio of characters all about to entwine their lives with Tom.

A worrier by nature, Tom's life has come to a bit of a standstill, unable to push passed his inhibitions. His  perspective on life is about to be radically altered though, after a chance meeting with a  hitch hiker named Cotton. Pale and gaunt, and dressed in a parrot onesie, Cotton strikes Tom as a little on the odd side. After letting her into his car, a conversation unfolds and things begin to get surreal. For one his inner child is suddenly sitting on his shoulder.

And these are not the only peculiar characters in town Tom is about to encounter. A beautiful man with a power over anyone he talks to seems intent on talking to him too. But is it really Tom he's after?

Join Tom in a surreal adventure set in this seemingly mundane world.

This is a reworking of a story I'd posted recently. I've changed the perspective to third person and altered the plot a bit.Thanks for reading, hope you like it :D

Your standard post apocalyptic setting: Ash covers the earth, a small community hunkers down in an old power station tower and a girl from the past with bright blue eyes awakens, blind to the world around her. Joined by a gang of not so talkative survivors and one very talkative one, they must traverse this bleak grey world, devoid of colour, and maybe in the process inject a bit of life back into it. Because when things are grey, all you can try and do is see the bright side. Course it's not always so easy.

Thriller

Political powers are shifting and this time they look set to cement their hold over the Western Alliance. Set in a world much like the our own, the populations of Europe and America are becoming restless. As tension boils in the background, everything changes with the introduction of a major biological technology. Debilitating illness as well as a more sinister threat faces the only person standing in the way of those that seek to control, but things are changing for our unlikely saviour too and she may not have been as alone and powerless as she first thought.

A Life Lived Awkward

Think British romcom meets... well maybe just think British romcom.

A story about Sebastian (Seb to those he knows...which aren't many), a university student still not comfortable in his own skin, searching for the rule book on how to socialize. He's shy and sometimes a bit pretentious, maybe even narcissistic but means well at heart...or he at least he sees it that way. All he wants really is to find love in a perhaps too quintessentially British manner.

As it's set during his university years in England it contains a lot of drunken stories, stumbling around Oxford.

Hope you enjoy it. Would love to hear any feedback.
