I wrote this story a while back when the world commemorated the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One. I wanted to write a story of people left in the UK that is equally as distressing and life-changing for the participants than than those that so many of our soldiers suffered in combat.

The Fisherman – a creepy tale

When I was in my late teens, I loved to cycle the 10 miles or so to the Epsom Stewpond to start fishing at first light in the summer holidays.

I entered this story in a Writer’s Magazine competition, and I am pleased to say that it was short-listed.
