Tales for Dreamers

an image + a tale = plenty of whimsy and wonder

More than a decade ago, inspired by the writings of Neil Gaiman and Erin Morgenstern, especially her flax-golden tales, I began to write and share short fantasy fiction tales, each paired with an image.

These tales have proved to be an endless source of delight for many readers. There were more than a hundred tales at last count, several not yet published, and I keep writing and adding more to the list.

All tales are archived here.

You can read some of the popular tales right away without a subscription.

Subscribers to the Monthly Missives newsletter receive a new tale every month.

I promise I will only send you delightful dreams and wondrous whimsies. Impossible illusions and fleeting fantasies. Straight from The Dream Pedlar’s emporium into your mailbox! Occasionally, I may send you innocuous nightmares. All in good fun!
