Book Review: The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan

RATING: 4/5 I have just finished reading the most scrumptious book by Ruth Hogan. Her debut book in fact, The Keeper of Lost Things. The title alone is a gem. There is something inherently beautiful and enthralling about lost things. Those things that lay abandoned on the path, or a wall, or a train seat.… Continue reading Book Review: The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan

Shatter the Silence

I remember peering around the doorway watching each plate shatter, splintering into a ceramic snowstorm at the hands of my mother. For some reason my memory has omitted the sound. I see her mouth open wide, her eyes and nose dripping. I see the droplets merging with the flying debris as she furiously throws her… Continue reading Shatter the Silence

Lone Rider (Friday Fictioneers)

“You riding alone?” Nicki looked along the line to the man towering over the ride attendant. “Indeed” he replied. She watched as he folded himself into the carriage, his movement like liquid. The ghoulish siren wailed and the man was carried inside. “Weird” “What?” Annie asked, beside her. “Oh nothing” More carriages departed before she and Annie… Continue reading Lone Rider (Friday Fictioneers)

Shed Some Light (Friday Fictioneers)

Why she insisted on going out there at all hours was beyond me. “I feel more at one with nature” she’d said… Continue reading Shed Some Light (Friday Fictioneers)

Sunday Photo Fiction: A Lucky One

She had to keep walking if only to find some solace for her naked feet. The ice underfoot was biting at her toes. My shoes. Where are my shoes?

So Many Stories (Friday Fictioneers)

She had always worn an underskirt. I remember them swaying in the breeze as they hung side by side on the washing line, crisp and white. Although they were much more than that. They were my sail on far flung adventures across the sea; the flag of my enemy surrendering at last. A beautiful veil… Continue reading So Many Stories (Friday Fictioneers)
