The easiest way to get a “taste” of my short fiction is probably just to click on one of my published books on Amazon and read the preview portion.

Most of the venues listed above are paying (‘token ‘to ‘pro’ levels of pay) venues. Mythaxis, however, is an ad-free, labour-of-love venue that I’m happy to support with a tale or two (when I have something suitable to send them). If you’re a writer (or artist) yourself and wish to support it, then here are the submission guidelines.



  1. Jez, I just stopped by to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed the Percina Saunders series! I just finished reading your season finale, and I’ve got to tell you, they’ve been my favorite stories to come out of Daily Science Fiction since I joined up. I love the wit, the characters, the short but cleverly-resolved conflicts, and the fact that the husband and wife are happily married and supportive of each other despite their difficulties, which is disappointingly rare in stories these days. I really hope you’ll do a second “season” and we get to see what new adventures Baby Saunders will bring! Thanks for sharing your fun characters with us. =)

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Jennifer, I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the stories. Yes, I’ve written some further adventures with the ‘new addition’ to the crew–it was simply too tempting to see how Percina and Martin would face their usual challenges but with this new ingredient stirred into the mix 🙂 Thanks so much for stopping by and best of luck and success with your own writing. Jez
