I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

A time with a star.


My Passing. C A Middleton 2021 Through blackened vision like coal capped contact lenses, the world reflects no sunshine. Trees, once majestic and yawning, green with life’s kindness, wither and wilt dead leaves. They hang like rotten banana skins, dripping liquor of the foulest scent on to black grass, crying in pain. I stumble from … Continue reading

Quiet and Chaos. By C A Middleton 2021 There’s a voice on the waves. She sails across time with a gentle to do and other phrases not mine. – She wants to take my hand. To lead me down leafy avenues. To bandstands with bassoons  where we’ll dance in soft shoes. – At three, we’ll … Continue reading

Morning Swim? By C A Middleton 2021 In his cotton gown, Wheezy Richardson lay back. His spine ached these days. Though, it was more out of the lack of burden than the weight of it. He frowned. Above the sirens and groans of passing engines, he sensed something missing. A heavy absence of birdsong. “It’s like spring … Continue reading

“Poppa, do you know if you keep a goldfish in a dark room it turns white?” Trixie asked me. And do you know? I didn’t know that fact. She knows some odd things.
