George Zacal

George Zacal gained a degree from Southampton University and worked for Unilever in the UK and Italy. He subsequently worked for most of his working career in the wallpaper industry in Lancashire. He has recently retired here to Plymouth and during the Covid pandemic took up short story writing. In a world of too much to do and little time to do it in, I have written stories which can be slotted into short gaps in the day or on public transport. 500 words would take about ten minutes and 1500 words gets you to between 15-20 mins. Time to be entertained hopefully.

Saving bullets – WW11 incident

The White Lady – a ghost story
