Lara vs The Savage Pack
First Appeared: Monday, 13th, September ‘Wooden Pews’ online news aggregator
The Heaviest Change by Lara Craft.
When Barry Finbarr (the editor-in-chief and owner of the Wooden Pews) first asked me to write about my experiences of the so-called Lupin virus I must admit I had to think about it for a long time. Not because I do not want people to know what it is like to have suffered through this outbreak. Nor because I am worried about the attention it will bring.
My concern is due to the secrets that I have had to carry because of it that I have not discussed with anyone. What I will reveal here may never make it to print because of what I have done, and seen done at the hands of others.
To give a little background, my childhood couldn’t be considered difficult. I have loving parents and a sister with which I am very close. As children we would play with our dolls and pony figurines like any girls our age, dreaming of handsome princes

The Mechanics Guide to Perspective
The Mechanic's Guide to Perspective
Daveo stood in front of the old brown car holding the bonnet up with his right hand, and stared into the greasy engine bay with a touch of resignation.
"Why does he keep booking in jobs like this?" he lamented to Swannie, who was laying out hand tools along the battered stainless workbench of the small mechanical workshop.
Swannie's permanent laconic grin turned towards Daveo.
"That sounds like a whinge to me."
Daveo rolled his eyes and put up the bonnet stay before replying.
"It's not a whinge, I'm just saying..."
"Whinge" Swanny interjected.
"...that he books in too many jobs on old shitboxes like this."
"Whinge, mate. Put your money in the Whinge-Jar."  Swannie held out his empty porcelain coffee mug helpfully.
Daveo ignored it, and stared at Swannie's gormless round face above the annoyingly clean blue overalls.
"I'm just saying there's no money in this stuff.  Why do you like working on this old crap anyway?"
Swannie straight

Heh. Four years without an update.
I'm all grown up now.  Evidence of this is a demanding day job, a family, mortgage and I've finally moved all of my crap out of my parent's house.  Don't expect too much in the way of updates until I've retired (probably in 20 or 30 years time) :/
I have been away traveling for a few weeks over Christmas and on my return home found more than the usual messages in my inbox (usually there's 1 or 2 so 60-odd was a shock).
My latest short story Lara vs The Savage Pack (and my first in ages) received a Daily Deviation on the 11th of January. Many thanks again to  xlntwtch and neurotype for this.  I guess I'm getting a little better at writing, even though I still see things I should do better. 

Tales of Change keeps growing in my mind and I think there's a few more short stories in the series yet to come, and I have always had in my mind a way to tie them all in together so that will be something of a challenge, and I'm looking forward to it.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas break, and is now well fed and happy!  I know I am! :)
