In The Garden Air by Patsy Collins

In The Garden Air

by Patsy Collins

Dorothy used to hate the noise of lawnmowers starting up, like a kind of horticultural Mexican sound wave, but that was before Luke was the one in charge of the machine.

Actually she still dislikes those, but she loves the...

Whether full time, part time, or can't wait for home time, working from home, working away...

Not a Drop to Drink by Patsy Collins

Not a Drop to Drink

by Patsy Collins

Scientists say the human body is 70% water. That's not true.

Our bodies do contain liquid of course. Never just water though. What's in yours; acid and bile or the milk of human kindness? Blood, sweat and tears of joy or sorrow?

It's these waters I hope you'll find running through my stories. Cheers!

Perfect Timing by Patsy Collins

Perfect Timing

by Patsy Collins

Whether we have long hours to fill, or not a moment to spare, time plays an important part in all our lives. We might not watch the clock, but we can't escape the impact of the seconds ticking away. Time waits for no woman, neither will it accelerate at her command. It's no more considerate of men, children and teddy bears.

Being a little early, or late, can have a big impact; it could mean missing a train, inheritance, or much...

Slightly Spooky Stories I by Patsy Collins

Slightly Spooky Stories I

by Patsy Collins

Ghosts, sixth sense and things not of this world aren't always scary, though they can be. Some help or warn, frighten or comfort those who perceive them. Others are here for their own purposes, waiting for a chance to move on. We might see, hear or feel them, perhaps they'll only reach us through our subconscious.

Are ghosts memories and echoes of the past, contacts from another time and place, or just figments of our imagination?...
