What is flash fiction?
To me, and for the purpose of this website, flash fiction is a short, (usually under 500 words) original and fictional story. My goal for each piece of flash fiction is to maximize the use of each word, while producing interesting characters and plot, while keeping the reader entertained. I love how flash fiction allows readers to experience the thrill of a new story without any long-term commitment.
What sort of flash fiction?
I write on many topics, but I especially love historical fiction and ghost stories. I never use swearing in online posts and if I feel a trigger warning is in order, I will provide one. My hope is to keep the reader thinking about my story long after they have finished reading.
Anything to read?
I am just polishing up a flash fiction piece about an encounter with the ghost of Queen Katherine Howard. Look for that later this week. In the meantime, you can read a piece I submitted to the Anne Boleyn files in December for their annual advent calendar by clicking here.
Thanks for exploring flash fiction with me! More to come.
