Report (July 2001)
M: This is more parental than the other St. Clare
stories, but the school is still there (though maybe in not-so-central
a fashion). It reflects my daddy/daughter-ish vein of stories.
(June 2001, SSC)
M: A short St. Clare story for the 2001 SSC.
I've always been fascinated at the power that prefects and the
like were given over other girls at school - including the power
to punish their peers.
Meeting with Our Headmaster (September
M: Mariana writes to her friend Vera about a visit to their
headmaster's study and a very painful waking up!
Comfort of Small Things (April 2000)
M: The third of the St. Clare stories, co-written
with the ever-bratty MollyB.
It's a tale of friendships between girls and women as two field
hockey players pay with an OTK for an intimate transgression.
Buy Me Love (September 1999)
M: The second of the St. Clare stories. A new girl's
attempt to win friends at St. Clare through gifts of sweets lands
her in painful trouble as she painfully learns that true friendship
must be earned.
Summer Uniform (June 1999)
M: The first of the St. Clare stories, inspired
by a trip to Aitken and
Niven in Edinburgh. A daughter's transfer to St. Clare and
the shopping trip for her new uniform becomes a lesson in the
discipline her mother 'felt' at both home and school.
