**PLEASE be patient. This whole site is under re-construction and you may get a few ‘dead-ends’ and/or strange connecting pathways as I work away in the background.
For now, I’ll start with the most recent story first, although I’m only about to begin adding the full story here, and still making decisions about the next two – so no links for them yet.
This time, I’m planning to post the full story here. I’ll warn you – it is BIG – about 30,000 words! And going to be about 20+ chapters! The good news is that each chapter is a ‘stand-alone’, being read to a small boy as a bedtime story each night.
A FIRST PRIZE WINNER! What a thrill. SO proud. I knew I loved it, but it’s SO gratifying to find some judges felt the same way! A cute story about the power of ‘togetherness’, overcoming a problem as a team when the ‘power of one’ just isn’t enough.
Hmm… what to do with this one? It was a second prize winner. Here’s the whole short story of a boy and his… dragon?
A third prize winner. Sweet times between a grand-daughter and her Grandpa.

Tall Tales from the small Folk Clan
Unusual and often unknown words from many years ago, transformed by wacky verse.
They rhyme and sing and riddle, they joke and play knock-knocks, they love messing around with colours and sounds and numbers. What will these Small Folk get up to next?
