Decided now was as good a time as any to release Dry Spell, an uber-short story that I wrote in January. It’s up for free on Smashwords if you’d like to have a look. Young adult drama with a hint of fantasy, Dry Spell tells of teenager Paul Fields’s difficulties getting through drought when an inner voice keeps urging him to hurt anyone nearby.
Paul Fields has had a rough few years: elfin mother assaulted, well-known father arrested, and unfairly turned away from his rugby club. Now, the weight of the clouds is upon him. And as Paul sits unwillingly through his younger brother’s school play, intrusive thoughts of violence assail him, demanding he act. His brother in his arms, will Paul break him to ease the suffering of all?
