'Alchemy' is a collection of flash fiction interspersed with poetry which explores a world of surrealism and magical realism. The name alchemy came from my desire to create stories about transformation and are other-worldly. The opening piece 'A Collection' tells of a woman who collects borrowed expressions; 'Eden' is about a woman who transforms into a lizard while struggling with isolation. The stories themselves range from dark to light.
