A Change of Mind and Other Stories by Nick Wilford

A Change of Mind and Other Stories consists of a novella, four short stories, and one flash fiction piece. This collection puts the extremes of human behaviour under the microscope with the help of lashings of dark humour, and includes four pieces previously published in Writer’s Muse magazine.

In A Change of Mind, Reuben is an office worker so meek and mild he puts up with daily bullying from his boorish male colleagues as if it’s just a normal part of his day. But when a stranger points him in the direction of a surgeon offering a revolutionary new procedure, he can’t pass up the chance to turn his life around.

But this isn’t your average surgeon. For a start, he operates alone in a small room above a mechanic’s. And he promises to alter his patients’ personality so they can be anything they want to be…

In Marissa, a man who is determined to find evidence of his girlfriend’s infidelity ends up wondering if he should have left well alone.

The Dog God finds a chink in the armour of a man with a megalomaniacal desire to take over the world.

In The Insomniac, a man who leads an obsessively regimented lifestyle on one hour’s sleep a night finds a disruption to his routine doesn’t work for him.

Hole In One sees a dedicated golfer achieving a lifelong ambition.

The Loner ends the collection on a note of hope as two family members try to rebuild their lives after they are torn apart by jealousy.

A Note from Nancy

It's been a very long time since I posted here. The writing life has utterly consumed me, and I find time for little else these days. (I'm working on my third novel, another thriller, but hot, hot HOT in the romance department! Seems once you publish, you have to keep churning stories out so your readers don't forget you.  And they have short memories and voracious appetites, so my beloved blog has suffered for it.  

I miss all my blogger friends dearly. I wish I had time to make the rounds and see what everyone is up to.  Many of you are on Facebook, so I see you often.  Others are not, and therefore, I miss what they're up to.  I worked hard to build up a following here, and I don't want to give my blog up completely.  

So, if any of you would like to ever post here, please contact me via email at and use the subject line: MAY I BORROW YOUR BLOG?  Then send me whatever you want and I'll schedule a post at your direction.
