A Day at the Beach

A lady is sat on a bench. Her face is raised, eyes closed, catching some rays. A man approaches the lady. “Excuse me madam, is this seat taken?” He asks in a friendly manner.

“You can sit here for a while, however I am saving this seat for my husband, Bobby, he’s just gone to park the car and will be back any minute.” The man takes a seat and reaches into his pocket taking out a couple of sandwiches wrapped in foil. Keep on reading!

The Slender Man

Am I imagining this? Its 3am which means I thankfully have another three and half hours before I need to get up for work. But what is that sound? I press the snooze button on my alarm clock and check my phone to see if my son has somehow changed my alarm tone, but there’s nothing.
Why is there an ice cream van roaming the streets at night? Keep on reading!

Apartment Block of Dreams

I’ve heard of this place at the heart of the city that could turn the slightest potential of good fortune into an unmeasurable amount of possibilities for the individual. The location is centred in the middle of a derelict council estate surrounded by an undesirable population suffering from addiction, mental health and physical disabilities. When I was told about this place, I was skeptical. I couldn’t believe that this place existed. But the temptation to improve my social well-being which had been steadily declining after an absurd decision to quit my job to foolishly pursue an acting career, forced me to consider even the smallest reasons for its location.

Welcome

Hello there, welcome to Chronicles of Wonder. A personal site used to share short stories that I have created.

I’ve been working on my main project which is a graphic novel called ‘The Arc’, on and off for over six years. During this time I have thought of other stories that I had wanted to explore further but didn’t have the skills necessary to do it until I completed a Creative Writing course. Now I cannot seem to stop myself!

My genre of stories seems to be directed more towards the supernatural and science fiction. I’m inspired by Black Mirror and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. I’m a big comic fan as well, collecting titles such as Batman, The Walking Dead and X-Men.

Right enough of me rambling on. I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I have writing them.

Happy reading!
