Those of you who are following the antics of Fred Tench in The Fishing Detectives series, will be pleased to know that book 3 is well underway. In fact, I would say that I am about two-thirds of the way into completing it. The plot of the book centres around some metal thieves and Fred’s team taking part in the Police National Fishing Championship. Although Fred and his colleagues are essentially pleasure anglers, Fred has another reason for needing to do well in the match and he pulls out all the stops.
I am also getting quite hooked on writing short fiction so I though I’d let you have a couple of new examples to read.
Wendy hadn’t expected to be thrust into the limelight. She respected great art, so it came as a big surprise when the art experts did cartwheels after seeing the abstracts she’d done for amusement.
Sitting in the TV studio, listening to the famous host introduce her was embarrassing on a scale that she never thought possible.
“And tonight ladies and gentlemen, I have the pleasure of introducing Wendy Taylor, who has wowed the world with her brilliant use of colour. Perhaps Wendy, you could explain to the art world how you do it.”
“Yes, it’s pretty easy really, I’m colour Blind.”
The light aircraft was falling slowly from the sky, but the pilot remained calm and joined his terrified passengers. One was well dressed, while the other was obviously a backpacker.
“I’ve got bad news,” said the pilot, “there are only two parachutes.”
“Well I’m a captain of industry and I make quick decisions, so I’m having one and you two can fight over the other,” said the man in the suit as he grabbed a chute and jumped.
“I’m sorry,” said the Pilot
“We’ll be alright,” said the backpacker, “the captain of industry has just jumped out with my rucksack.”
If you enjoyed these bits of short fiction, you may also enjoy my book of short stories, “No Fishing In Here: Just Short Stories” which is available on amazon.
