About Verity


Thank you for visiting my bio, not much to see I’m afraid. I’m not really an interesting person. I only started writing this year (2021) I had never written anything before. I’ve never even read a book, not one. Unless the operating instructions for my washing machine count that is.

I have dyslexia you see, I find writing a real struggle, but I enjoy it enough to somehow muddle through. Over the last few months my typing has got a little quicker. MS Word corrects most of my spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. Once I’ve removed all the red squiggly lines from under my words I save it as a PDF. I then listen to it back using the “read aloud” function. It’s a bit of an iggle-daggle but it seems to work for me.

That’s about it really. I did say I wasn't that interesting. If by chance, you do read one of my stories, please leave me a comment and tell me what you think. I would love to know what I’m getting right and what I’m getting wrong. Regards, Verity

Not sure if I have posted this pair before. Julia Westlin is a Swede but moved to Canada after meeting David Meshow (stage name, real name is Michaud) from Quebec online. She came to visit, things clicked, and years later they are married and also work together on their respective musical careers. While Julia has been putting out a lot of original material of late, she still does covers like this one that also features David.


That’s lovely; she almost has a Celtic twang to her voice. I really enjoyed that. Canada has produced some fine singers over the years. Anne Murray is my personal favourite.

Just been thrown out of McDonald's.

I sat down and ate a Kid's Meal.

His mother complained. I was thrown out of a cinema once for taking my own food in. I said that I only did it because their food was way overpriced. They said the smoke from my BBQ was spoiling the film for everyone else.

Morning, fellow storiespacers...

Did you all know that yawns are contagious? It's true. Next time you are in a crowd, let out an unsuspecting yawn and see how many around you follow suit. NOTE: I've yawned three times while writing this!

What's the antidote? Thank you for asking! It happens to be some of Rump's fine brew. I'll take a cup, if you don't mind, kind sir.

Happy Thursday everyone...hold strong, the weekend's within reach! I could be wrong (although as a woman that’s pretty unlikely) I believe that copy yawning is a tribal thing dating way back into prehistory. Back then, we acted as a tribal collective, a bit like The Borge. It’s a signal for the tribe to sleep. A similar throwback is being sick. If someone near you vomits, you feel the need to vomit. That’s because as a tribe we all ate the same thing. If it made one of us sick, it was quite likely poisonous and therefore in everyone’s best interest to eject it from our stomachs. On that note, I’ll have a cup of tea please and a nice cookie.

This comp has been a favourite of mine, the friendliness and community is so strong here and that brings out the best in us all.

How dare you! We will have nun of that. Second place is first place looser, and so on. Win at all costs. evil4



Darn upload limitations. I have a funny penguin gif where one smacks the other to the ground. I wanted to juxtapose the tuxedo’d pairing. Penguins & Nuns. I sense a very hot South African catholic school story in the making or a very chilly one from Antarctica. But I don’t think there are any catholic colonies on the big berg.

Good comp. I concur. At the very least, we learned that Verbs was raised by wolves. Winning isn't everything. As long as you win.

The Lady Who Wouldn’t Stay Dead

You don’t hear that many stories about what it’s like to be dead. That’s probably because dead people tend not to write that much. So, why am I writing about dying? Simple, twenty years ago I died, yes really, I did. And I don't mean dead for a few seconds. No, I was dead for a little longer than one would like. I would love to say I died whilst saving a drowning child or perhaps running...

The Wardrobe

I can hear him downstairs; he’s opening cupboards in the kitchen. Cowering down in the corner of the wardrobe, I try not to make a sound. Then I hear him. He’s coming up the stairs. “I know you’re up here, I will find you.” My heart quickened as I heard him searching the bedroom. Then his shadow appeared at the bottom of the door. I nearly screamed as the door opened. Reaching in, he...

The Stone Circle

It was that time of year again, conference time. Once a year, about now, my husband’s company takes all the top managers away on what he calls ‘a little jolly.’ Basically, they book a nice hotel somewhere in the countryside and have a few presentations about the direction the company will be taking in the coming year. It’s actually quite nice as the hotels are always the best and the wives...

The Village Fair

It was that time of year again, midsummer. One of the highlights of the year for me is our little village fair. We always seem to get the weather as well. I think once in the last ten years we had rain. It was only a little shower though and was soon gone. In the middle of the village green, they set up a marquee. People from the village bring along their flowers to show. The best flowers get...

The Proposal

Twice this week he’s asked me to marry him, twice I had to turn him down. Now he’s asking again, I’m running out of excuses. I mean, I love him to bits, I really do. He’s kind, very good-looking and always brings a smile to my face. I’ve tried to put him off without hurting him too much. The last thing in the world I want to do is hurt him. He doesn’t understand why the age difference is...

Who Does He Think He Is?

You won’t believe this. A complete stranger walked up to me in the street and said, “This is your lucky day; I’m taking you out tonight.” Before I could tell him where to go he said, “Doll yourself up and meet me in the pub at seven.” And walked off. I was completely flabbergasted; I’ve never been so shocked or insulted in all my life. I mean, who does he think he is? Does he think he can...

The Lords Tavern

London, 1642. In the docks of Tilbury, East London, stood The Lords Tavern. With a name like that you could be forgiven for thinking it was a friendly place. Far from it, this was about the most unfriendly establishment as was possible to find. Filled with the dregs of life, men who would gladly slit your throat as soon as look at you. No place for a gentleman, or any man with a...

My First Time

It’s my first time, I’m nervous. I shouldn’t be, I’m sure he knows what to do. Hope he’s gentle with me. I don’t know why I left it so late in life. I feel foolish for not doing it sooner. I’m shaking; I don’t want to mess up my first time. I don’t want to put him off me. How long before I get it right. I must relax, stop overthinking. I want to remember my first time. “Okay Verity, don’t...

Bullets and Bombs

The first bullets whisked past my ears. A short burst of machine-gun fire quickly followed. I was there, right in the middle of the action. A small explosion to my left as a fighter plane whizzed overhead. My heart was racing as the men ran up the beach toward me. My whole body shook as a shell exploded in the sea. I could hear another small explosion behind me. Two more fighter planes,...
