Seven years ago I received this illustration to go with my AO3 Yuletide story ‘No Man is an Island’
It still remains one of my favourite pictures. A lot has happened in the last seven years and although my fanfic ‘output’ may have diminished somewhat, I have made a promise to myself to complete at least one UFO story this year. Maybe it will be the Hallowe’en one I started last year, or the Christmas one from the year before! There WILL be a new UFO story this year posted on Sept 21st, but for now, I’d like to wish all UFO fans and those who have been so generous with their comments,
A Very Happy and Prosperous 2019.

The laptop was tucked away at the back of his safe. No need for explanations, not that he would have given any. It should really have gone back to the IT department, but they would destroy it and although it was no longer of any use, he would not allow that to happen. It held too many precious memories. He sipped his coffee, wondering where she was right now. Continue reading
Seven years since I wrote the final line of ‘Shepherd’. A few more months though before I was done editing it, but looking back that was an incredible time in my life.
Since then I have gone on to do other fairly long UFO stories – The Needs of the Many being probably one of the longest, though there is a story for next year that is roughly 40k in length. ‘Shepherd’ though, was a stonking 150,000 words seven years ago. My first novel.
My grateful thanks to those who have read it and who encouraged me to write on. I haven’t written much UFO recently as life has taken a different turn, but I am aiming to complete at least two UFO stories next year.
There will be a new UFO story posted here on Christmas Eve – adult in theme and featuring Col Lake and Ed Straker. Comments will be welcome, as always.
No new Hallowe’en story this year – the one I started got waylaid by real life, but for anyone wanting an older creepy story ….
and of course, the wonderful Calan Gaeaf by AnDelenDir (on AO3)
There will be a new UFO story posted here, starting September 21st – to celebrate Ed Straker’s birthday. Currently I have two (maybe three or four – I need to check!) complete stories waiting to be published and another two started, both of which are going to be relatively short. Continue reading

There will be a new UFO story posted here early in January. Not a ‘Christmas ‘ story per se, but a new one all the same. And then I will be taking a break from UFO for a few months. For the last couple of years I have been focussing on my professional writing and I need to finish editing the next novels I have waiting to be published next year, as well as continue work on three new ones that are in various stages of development.
As a result, I will be posting here less frequently, although I will continue to write UFO. But, for anyone who wants to read older Christmas UFO ??
One Wish at Christmas (angst, character death, paranormal)
Fluff (fluff – lots and lots of fluff)
Stopping By Woods (snow. and more snow)
And for anyone who hasn’t read the following fabulous stories by AnDelenDir

Companion (Adult themes)
