Overview

During my career I have flown all over the world, so have sat for ages in airports waiting for the damn planes to arrive or depart. It was during these useless, yet precious hours, that I began writing my short stories: in ÔGullibleÕs TravelsÕ I describe some of my misadventures.

Some stories are unashamedly Ôchick litÕ, while others are more worldly. A few are personal and true, while some are deliberately condensed within a 60 or 100 word limit. In one story I write as a child to describe events during WWII: I have also included one childrenÕs story.

The surprising details of ShakespeareÕs bequests in ÕWillÕ are totally accurate. In ÔEyes of HopeÕ I describe the emotions of a girl of Turkish and Greek Cypriot origin during and after the Turkish Invasion of 1974.

I wrote ÔKoala CountryÕ on my way home from Australia while another story describes the feelings of a frustrated and jealous colleague of Bridget Jones.

Like conspiracy theories?ÔThe Death of NapoleonÕcontends he was murdered.
