Ramble Leaves is a collection of short fiction about two adventurers in a remarkable world. They often get into trouble, but that’s not my fault — I’ve tried to warn them.

The tales find our heroes retrieving stolen goods in Operation Sycamore… fighting weedy creatures in Submergent Trouble… breaking into a lab to rescue Wild Starlight… resisting an attack in Encounter in the Cave… and outwitting a murderous oak tree while trapped In the Captivating Boughs.

Those give you a good place to start. You can also browse the full list or see recent posts (including a Christmas story).

The stories are not sequential — you can read them in any order you like. Nor are they consequential, having no discernible purpose or meaning. You can avoid reading them altogether and suffer no remorse at missing out.

Each story is illustrated by one of my paintings — recently finished or created years ago. Some pieces may be available to buy, or gone if you wait too long. Click the Artwork link to see if there’s still hope.

Happy reading.
