Mr Penny's Dream

The third (and final) adventure of my dear friend Mr. Penny. In which he goes to a Paul McCartney concert. Read it here.


FICTION: Mr. Penny’s Seventh


“The fox had such large, comical eyes. They were like the kind you’d stick on a walnut…”

A new story featuring my old friend, Mr. Penny – and his friend, a cartoon fox. Read it over at The Walrus, here.

If you enjoy my stories, don’t be shy about letting The Walrus know by sending a quick note to, a tweet to @walrusmagazine (my own handle is @rolliwrites) or slapping a comment on their facebook page. Great feedback = many more stories to come.

Thank-you so much for reading…

(Re)Introducing … Mr. Penny


Long, long ago (in 2010), I wrote a series of stories about a damaged and enigmatic man known only as Mr. Penny. Those stories can all be found in my first short fiction collection, God’s Autobio, a book read by no one.

Very, very recently (in 2015), I wrote a few new Mr. Penny stories. Who can say why? These will be published throughout December by The Walrus, a magazine read by a great many people.

The first of the new Mr. Penny Stories, “Mr. Penny Sees Red,” the best one to date, I’d say, is now live. Read it here. And do let me know what you think of it…
