Yesterday I joined my fellow writers in the Fermanagh Creative Writing Group for an afternoon of Readings By Local Writers at Charlie’s Bar in Enniskillen. Our stories ranged from humorous to wisful to thought provoking – something for just about everyone.
My spooky story Conquering The Shadows which is set in 1800s Britain, allowed me to venture into one of my favourite genres, historical fiction. The dimly lit interior of the pub provided the ideal atmosphere, setting the scene for a tale of flitting shadows and eery noises in a Victorian home.
