My writings

In the second half of 2013 I took a course in creative writing at the open College and gained a

‘Certificate in Short Story Writing’

 The first dozen stories on this website are the ones I wrote during the course. Of these the story 'The Porsche' was published in the Porsche Car Club Magazine The story of the war remembered was published in the historical magazine of my birth place [translated into dutch]
The stories 'The Chess player' and 'the Danish Gambit' were published in the Box hill Chess Club magazine 

I hope you will enjoy all my stories.

Detailed and beautifully paced, like all your writing, Gerry! The photos add a poignant touch that takes use to that moment in time. June Colbert
