My story The Wrong Word appears in The Scribe Magazine’s March issue. It’s a story about a mother concerned (perhaps too much so) to prevent her small daughter from learning coarse language. It’s £10.77 in paperback from Amazon or £3.08 for the Kindle version, and you can buy it here:
I am delighted to announce that my short story Powder for a Periwig is now published in Millhaven’s Tales of Adventure.
Millhaven Tales is back with a new volume of action-packed adventure tales for the winter. Inside you will find nine thrilling adventures which not only cross continents, but cross time as well. These tales span time from the “Dawn of Reason” through modern times…Not only are these tales full of adventure, but they are filled with interesting characters and exotic locales. The stories inside are each unique, but all have that interesting take on the genre which Millhaven Press is known for. You never quite know what you are getting yourself into when you pick up a Millhaven release, so sit back and enjoy the ride… Buy now on Amazon
And one lovely customer gave this five star review, and singles Powder for a Periwig out for praise! And no, I didn’t write it!

Welcome to my website and blog. Its purpose is to share my work with the world in the hope some of you might enjoy the story excerpts that I’ve included. Of course, I am also hoping that a savvy agent will happen upon these pages and be kind enough to offer to represent me!
My name is Brian Wagstaff but I am know by most as Wag. I have been working in education for more years than I care to share, and in 2014 I began a Masters degree in creative writing. I started the course to further my long-time-coming novel Anything For My Baby which was in about its one hundredth draft. While studying I met many wonderful writerly friends and in their company I found renewed enthusiasm and enjoyment in the short story. As you can see, I have now amassed a small collection and excerpts are available here.
This blog will be used for announcements of publication, general musings on the creative process, and from time to time essays about writing, authors I admire, and book reviews.
I hope you enjoy your time spent here.
