Nature writing is something I’ve been intending to do more of. It’s already four years since I went on inspirational workshops with Mark Cocker and Patrick Barkham.
It was during my #30DaysWild Challenge that I considered the issue of environmental themes in my stories. If only I could think of a good topic to write on, one which I had some expertise, or at least experience.
Then I realised I have a unique opportunity to write about a patch of land that I can see from my house. It’s owned by someone else, but it’s basically a managed field, part of the flood plain of the River Wensum in Norfolk.
Third Flatiron presents Galileo’s Theme Park, a new anthology of science fiction, dark fantasy, horror, and humor. Twenty short stories by an international group of authors explore how the universe has changed since Humanity took a closer look at the stars.

The Realms: a world of kings and castles, rivalries and communities. Our two major characters, Fred and George, set out to solve a problem, and unleash a revolution.
George, a progressive, an inventor, and an enthusiast for all things that fly, starts by discovering the real power of strawberry juice. Then he finds flying machines. And before the series ends, he will have changed the face of the world as he knew it.
Fred, a thinker, a supporter of the right to self-determination, accidentally becomes King. Not what this philosophical supporter of democracy wanted at all. Thank goodness he finds his true love, Princess Kira, to help him navigate the social changes he so desires.
