Today’s creation

Some year’s ago when I did NaNoWriMo I wanted to work on a book of short stories about shoes. The book is on hold but I did have a few ideas and this story below was inspired by a longer story I had created for that book.

The Snolar Bear

Bright whiteness filled the room, even with my eyes closed tight I noticed it, as I slowly stir from slumber. The house was wrapped in a sunny silence, so bright for a November morning.  As I stretch and raised myself from the bed, I look from my window to see a new world. A place of wonder, bright and white as…

Young Ebenezer ~ Confronts the School Bully by Rose English

Happy Halloween to you all. As a special celebration Book 2 in the Young Ebenezer series is currently on a special Halloween Promo starting at just 99p or 99c for our dotcom friends. A children’s book, a story in verse.

‘A Halloween treat, much better than sweets.’

A time for candy and costumes,
pumpkins and ‘Trick or Treat’.
But beware of the bully
lurking just down the street.

Ebenezer is really excited! It’s his first Halloween to go out ‘Trick or Treating’. Jacob Marley is excited too, but this school bully plans to steal all the kids’ sweets. Can Eb and his friends, along with the magical clock Grandfather Time teach Jacob the error of his ways? Or is the boy doomed to a life of crime, just like his wicked father?

The story of ‘Ebenezer and the Bully’ is…

Thrills and Scares for Halloween!

#Halloween treats much better than sweets! Children’s Books will last a lifetime. See these wonderful recommendations from Lily and the Fae.

Lily and the Fae

Ok there’s no shortage of horror books out there but these are just a few from MG to YA I have enjoyed and are deliciously creepy or in a few cases scare your knickers off terrifying.

For someone who wants to think along with their horror

The Maker of Monsters- Lorraine Gregory

Although a tad more gentle on horror than many of the books on this list, Wrath is a truly scary villain and army of blood thirsty reanimated hybrid monsters chasing down humans to destroy is pretty dark!! But it also has a wonderful warmth from the family Brat has created with the monsters rejected for being too sweet and a bundle of joy and love in Tingle.

It’s also is a wonderful tribute to the ethics and philosophy behind some of the greatest sci-fi horror stories ever, including Frankenstein and The Island of Doctor Moreau questioning what it…

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘Rain’

#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘Rain’

Rain.

There’s a hole in the sole
of my shoe.
There’s a hole where the water
seeps through.

And the coat that I’m wearing’s
so thin.
I can feel where the water
gets in.

And the hat on my head’s
a disgrace.
So the water it runs down
my face.

Then my gloves they are tatty
and torn.
So the water, like ice – stings
like thorns.

My whole body is withered
and old.
No wonder, this rain, makes
me cold.

#RubyTubeDay Poetry ‘The Rivers Serenade’

#RubyTubeDay YouTube video of ‘The Rivers Serenade’

The Rivers Serenade

Beneath the weeping willow tree,
I watch the butterflies, fly free.
Attracted by the meadow flowers,
that I could sit and watch for hours.
I glimpse the rivers silver shimmer,
yet here inside the world is dimmer,
amidst the gentle country sounds,
as I lay, upon the ground.

Dappled sunlight reaches through,
bringing memories old and new.
Between the slowly swaying leaves,
of this our weeping willow tree.
And as I slowly close my eyes,
and cotton candy clouds sail by.
Memories trickle then cascade,
along with the rivers serenade.

The way our teenage limbs entwined,
sending shivers through my spine.
Then once we turn we’re face-to-face,
and locked in young loves strange embrace.
And low a moment full of bliss
with the thought of our first kiss
Beneath our weeping willow tree,
entwined together you and me
