Black Star Diamond. Excerpt from my feature Screenplay

Written 13.9.06 The Black Star is now the world’s most expensive and rare Diamond. The stratosphere orbiting satellite keeps track of every $5.5 million plus stones. Black Star’s so dense it cannot be electronically encoded. A far cry from when this fist-size rough and uncut chunk was traded for a chance to escape the worst jail hell hole in the southern hemisphere, Fremantle, Australia in 1893. Four ingredients are uppermost when considering a diamond referred to as the 4 C’s. CARAT WEIGHT, CLARITY, COLOUR, CUT. D’s are the rarest and most desired shade of ‘white’ diamond. And will be completely devoid of color. D-flawless in color the very best grade of a diamond, and free from internal flaws or surface blemishes of any kind. Our story begins, or rather...

Kites. Animation

In the icy blackness of space on the dark side of the moon. They live in the shadows of those whose language and origins are unknown, and to survive they have to leave. They’ve seen another planet when testing massive prototypes and wondered. But it’s a light-year away, and they’re not the only ones on this Planet with Earth its destination. Synopsis In time past, only Lichens, Moss, and huge-harmless hairy-purple Spiders inhabited the planets’ colossal Grand Canyon. The strong deafening un-tamed winds that gust to warp speeds along the ridge length are something else. Stretching out beneath the open-plains the canyon walls are laced with shadowy caves that spiral into a labyrinth of dark un-explored chambers. A mile below on the Canyons floor the gentle breeze...

The Mugging. Short Story

At my age it’s time for most men to be thinking of putting one’s feet up, and taking it easy. Other luckier ones did so years ago. But knocking a white ball around fields trying to get it a small hole didn’t do much for me. Pat and I have always been a busy couple physically and mentally. It was clear that winter night when I decided to nip down to the shop overlooking the Paignton Harbour for a paper. As it’s only a ten-minute walk, I never thought of taking the car. I just reached the end of the reasonably well-lit road when this man; he’d have been about 25 I suppose, stepped in front of me, his nose almost touching mine. His breath smelt of cigarettes or it could have been grass, but not knowing what that smells like. Anyway, his manner was both...
