Mick Alec Idlelife is the alter ego of writer, Celia Micklefield. He sees things in a different way. Fans of Celia’s stories might be surprised if not a little shocked by him. Where Celia sees starbursts and glorious Roman candles, Mick notices damp squibs.
He’s planning to publish an e-book. He’s not sure about the title yet, but there’ll be two novellas and some supporting short stories. One of the novellas features feral cats and . . . .
. . . deadbolts. An unusual combination, you might think. Mick doesn’t think so.
In the second novella, Ted gets a surprise for his birthday from his wife who makes . . . . . . .
teddy bears. Mick has a penchant for dark humour. He likes to think Alan Bennet would approve of his ideas.
One of his short stories rated highly on Youwriteon, the writers’ website.
www.youwriteon.com is the website where writers can upload samples of their work for review by other writers. Reviewing other people’s work is a good way to improve your own skills, but Mick was more than delighted that he’d matched Celia’s performance.
