Over the years I’ve had around forty pieces of short fiction published, and more often than not, these have been short stories longer than a thousand words. On rare occasion, however I do write and publish a piece of flash or even micro-fiction.
Here are a few of my short pieces published and available online:
The oldest and technically first piece of fiction I ever published! This was way back in 2009 when I was but a toddler in the world of fiction writing. I am delighted to see that the site is still up and running, and publishing stellar stories in six short sentences every single day.

If you scroll down, my story is the third at the link. For this contest centered around women at work, I wanted to write something different. I came up with this short and succinct plot that highlighted a problem I suspect many women leaders face.

Are you seeing a women-centric trend here? So am I! Though I must say it is unintentional – I don’t set out to write fiction focused on women and their problems, it just turns out that way.
In the first micro-fiction contest held by SheThePeople, my story made the shortlist. Though it reads quite macabre, I intended it to signify motherhood. I am not sure if that has come across clearly, though!
I do write some flash and micro-fiction now and then, but my focus remains on work in the two- to three-thousand words range. Do you write any flash fiction? Feel free to leave a link in the comments below!
