I hope you enjoy your visit, please drop by again!~~~~~~~~~So, long time no see! I've been rather absent here of late. I'm mostly on deviantART now, so if you're still interested in my work, you'll fnd some more stuff, and more recent stuff too, over there. I still pop on here every now and again, so never fear, I've not left entirely. Been having a tidy-up of my shelf. With regards to my Long Story, 'The Foretold', I no longer intend to upload any more of it, so apologies to anyone who wished (still) to read it in full. As such, it has now been moved to my 'Other Works' tab, out of the way. I'm not currenly going to take it down, as I still wish to keep all the comments etc., but I've now moved on from it, so I shall leave it to gather dust. (Please note, this DOES NOT give you permission to use/copy/distribute ANY of the material within the documents, they are still my property, and I still care for them. Thank you).~~~~~~~~~ To help you navigate through my shelf / gallery I have categorised it's contents:Poems:Lilac FaeThe Dragon Charmer's DaughterThe Way Of The Sword (under Other Works)A Warrior's Song (under Other Works) Long Poems: The Lay Of Illborenth And GorethmonDescriptive Pieces:Who Am I?Describe Your HomeShort Stories:The Princess, The Dragon, And Harry The-Not-Very-BraveGeorge The-Not-Quite-A-Saint And The Misunderstood Dragon Long Stories:The Foretold: Prologue & Chapter 1 - The Coming of the Foretold / 2 - Unwanted Power/ 3 - A Night In The River/ 4 - Jall/ 5 - Shortcuts/ 6 - Disturbance In The Night/ 7 - Whispers Of Ill Fate/ 8 - Emriella's Dream / 9 - Sickness/ Chapter 10 - Black Magic, White Magic  / Chapter 11 - Marphona The Wise (under Other Works - NEW!) Misc:Inky Prison~~~~~~~~~   If you leave me a comment I shall make every effort to respond!

George The-Not-Quite-A-Saint And The Misunderstood Dragon

Here is the sequel The Princess, The Dragon And Harry The-Not-Very-Brave  and is the second part in the Saga of The Misadventures of Harry The-Not-Very-Brave. However, this story can still be enjoyed without having read the first one (though it is recommended). This is my take on the legend of Saint George, and was inspired by a beer poster that I saw a while ago. Once again, it is at least meant to make you smile if nothing else. Hope you like it!

The Princess, The Dragon, And Harry The-not-very-brave

This is just a silly short story that I wrote purely for my own amusement during writer's block. I decided to share it with you. It's nothing spectacular but it's supposed to at least make you smile. Enjoy!

The Dragon Charmer's Daughter

This is another poem I have written. It was inspired by a picture by fantasy artist Briar called 'The Dragon Charmer's Daughter'' hence the name of the poem. In the origional picture she is actually playing a harp instead of a lyre, but the word 'lyre' fit the poem easier than 'harp', so I did make a slight change. I hope you like it! ^_^

Describe Your Home

This was something I wrote as a practise GCSE English paper. The question was 'describe your home'. This is just a funny little piece I wrote, much more interesting than a normal, boring description I think!!

Lilac Fae

This is a poem that I have written that was inspired by a picture by Jessica 'Neon Dragon' Peffer. In my opinion it is the second best that I have written as of yet. The poem was also published by United Press Ltd. in their 2010 anthology, 'Whispers On The Breeze'. I hope you like it!

The Lay Of Ilborenth and Gorethmon

This is a poem - or lay - that was inspired by reading J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings'. It is the longest poem have have yet penned  and it is about two friends who are forced to flee from their home due to a battle that has gone ill against the High Dark Mage. However, they refuse to acknowledge this defeat and rally a new army to challenge the Mage and win back their homeland. This is the story of their quest...

Who am I?

This was something I wrote for a practice English paper. The question was 'Decribe yourself." And I only had 45 minutes to do the thing in. It's not perfect as I didn't have time to go back through it and change things, but I hope you like it!Note: This is not an actual description of least, I don't think so......

Inky Prison

Just something that wrote itself in my imagination after watching Inkheart. It's very similar is some ways. I hope you like it!
