Naughty Clare


“I’ve been ever so naughty,” Clare said, biting her thumb as she stood gangling nervously in the doorway. Jackson folded his arms sternly and shook his head. The cute coy she employed in fess-up mode was usually a distraction form something more serious. “Ah-huh,” he said balefully as he peered over his reading specs. “I-I […]

Consequences V


Part I Annabelle was furious with herself, how could she not guess that the session with Janice Benton was filmed? To make matters worse she had been forced to sit through the replay of her clownish efforts and bad acting while Drayton made comments about her caning style and even how she projected her authority. […]

Consequences IV


Part I Annabelle Guthrie stood with her forehead pressed to the one-way mirror and watched Janice’s birching. So far it had just got to the part where a woman approaches the boundary between the sting in her tail she can cope with and the real under burn that grows and grows until it feels as […]



This is what I know about time. When you are in trouble and waiting to be told off that is when time sits in front of you and smiles. It knows what you want and what you don’t want and how those are one and the same and it simply decides not to move so […]

The backdrop to the small airfield was high snow-capped mountains, although standing on the asphalt it was hot. Megan regarded the aircraft with a nauseous dread as she stood facing it in her […]

The Challenge


Emily understands how people could sell their souls. There is a kind of wanting that is so severe that the possibility of its being unfulfilled is unthinkable.
