Short story: <i>Housekeeper</i>



If cleanliness and orderliness are next to Godliness I would already be in heaven. A place for everything and everything in it's place; my place is among dusted shelves, knick-knacks lined up with military precision, coffee tables that have never been within spitting distance of coffee.

Short story: <i>Eight Thirty Five AM</i>

Short story: <i>Hog</i>

The old man. In the corner, all the sure signs of a consumate smoker painted plain as fragile grey skin on his face, sipping a beer and looking hangdog and blank at the same time.

Behind the expensive oak paneling, a dazzle of diamonds taut with anticipation lay in wait.
