Here’s a short story I’ve written entitled Mitzi and the Lion.
I wrote it because I wanted to examine the ways in which humans attempt to humanise all externals, even the patently non-human.
I was also interested in writing a short story that was not an immediately-recognisable genre piece.
Finally, I wanted to write about attraction and repulsion – and its many manifestations.
