Rochelle’s Briefcase – Chapter 11

Greetings everyone,

I’ve been madly working away at Chapter 11 of Rochelle’s Briefcase after receiving some encouraging feedback. Thanks heaps to everyone who has been reading it and voting.

The voting at the end of Chapter 10 decided that the other mob, the infamous and mysterious Team B would arrive at Rochelle’s place first, so needless to say Chapter 11 starts with high tension.

I really enjoyed writing this one. It introduces a couple of new characters and I’ve done a scene or two from a different point of view. I hope you find it interesting.

And the ending! Gotta love it.

Don’t forget to vote!

You can find Chapter 11 here at Story Time or the main page for catch-ups here.


Rochelle’s Briefcase – Chapter 10

Greetings everyone!

Thanks everyone who has been reading and voting and supporting Rochelle’s Briefcase. It’s been great fun writing it, even though I change my mind an awful lot in the process!

The poll question at the end of Chapter 9 was “How does Rochelle respond to the policeman’s question?” Voters decided that Rochelle would refuse to answer. Interesting when you’re being pressured by an officer of the law! Let’s see how this one pans out.

Chapter 10 can be found here.

Write a Story with Jennifer M Eaton – Part 30

My turn has come around again for Write a Story With Jennifer M Eaton. Click here to find out what this is all about.

Check out the story so far here.

I thought I’d add a little twist to mine this time round by ending in the middle of the sentence so you’ll have to come back next week just to find out how the sentence ends. Enjoy!

Part 30

Janelle was already out the bedroom door before realising the old woman was still fumbling for her walking stick. She watched helplessly as Morana shuffled unsteadily across the short distance from the bed to the other side of the night-stand where her walking stick rested, using the night-stand for support. Janelle’s mood fell as she realised how frail the old lady now was. Her magic could only do so much.

“I’m sorry, Morana. I wasn’t aware you cannot -”

“I can do this, Young Fairy. I must do this”, Morana said.

Janelle, said nothing, guilt building within her. To drag this weak old dear out into the cold night to help a woman giving birth seemed to be a cruel irony. Patience, Janelle, patience. At the same time she needed to hurry. The longer Natalia was without proper assistance the more dangerous the situation became.

Morana finally had the support of her stick and began a steady rhythm of shuffling towards the door and out of the house. Janelle, to ease her impatience and peace of mind, would fly up and down the street and patrol the area while Morana hobbled slowly towards Natalia’s residence. At the end of every run she would check on Natalia through the window, carefully ensuring she was still in a stable condition, sometimes offering reassurance that help was on its way.

On the way back she would arrive with relief to find that Morana had made significant progress walking up the street. This continued for several shortening laps until, to Janelle’s horror,

Rochelle’s Briefcase Chapter 8 Is Up

Hi Story Time fans!

NaNoWriMo seemed to make me lose momentum on Rochelle’s Briefcase. I seem to blame a lot of my apparent slackness on NaNoWriMo. Meh.

Anyway, I’ve finally got Chapter 8 up for my serial novel, Rochelle’s Briefcase on Story Time after readers voted on the question of Who was calling Rochelle on the phone. The final vote was for Ruby, despite the fact that she had apparently been kidnapped.

I hope you enjoy the latest episode and don’t forget to vote on what happens in Chapter nine. If you need to recap n what’s been going on there other chapters can be found here.

Cheers! 🙂

The Next Big Thing

Thanks to Mike Akin at for tagging me for the Next Big Thing. And to Maddie Cochere at for the tip!

I’m just going with the flow here, hoping I don’t break any rules or bust a chain or something. I’ve been given a list of questions I must answer about my Next Big Thing, aka a novel I am working on. Continue reading

Rochelle’s Briefcase Chapter 7 Is Up

It’s been a while but I’ve finally got Chapter 7 up from my serial novel, Rochelle’s Briefcase on Story Time.

No excuses for the delay but I’ve worked on my part for another little project in the meantime and even though that was only a short bit I was still interested in the feedback and aftermath of it. Continue reading

Write a Story with Jennifer M Eaton – Part 14

Jennifer M Eaton has set a challenge. She wanted to write a story but didn’t – sort of. So she invited her blog readers to help her. She wrote the first couple of hundred words and handed the task to the next person who would do the same. This will continue weekly until the ever-growing list of interested writers is exhausted… No, that will never happen.

Anyway, this week it’s my turn. This has certainly proved a challenge. I signed up after only reading Part One so I was jumping in blind. I quickly discovered the story became one of fairies and magical stuff. Not what I usually write so it’s been very different. Continue reading
