About Alice Lam
I have loved writing for as long as I can remember.
My story ‘Lilies’ was published in Atlantis Short Story Contest’s anthology in October 2018. Without giving a spoiler, ‘Lilies’ is about a young woman who is drawn to perform dark acts in order to assimilate the loss of a dysfunctional relationship.
Another two of my short stories are published in Didcot Writers’ anthologies – ‘The Bright Side’ is available to read in ‘The Most Normal Town in England’ and is about a dystopian English town run by a twisted psychiatrist. Published in ‘Compositions’, ‘Facing The Music’ is an exploration of the relationship between an inmate and someone who should by all accounts hate him. I am also excited to have stories published with Black Hare Press and in conjunction with the On Loss Anthology project.
Check out my author website where you can read many of my short stories for free (including Lilies), writing blog, plus links to my beta reading / critique and health writer services.

Titles By Alice Lam
What miracles can one hundred debut to bestselling authors do with 100 words?
More than three hundred 100-word drabbles from around the world.
On Loss is a genre-crossing collection of short stories, poetry, and flash fiction. Each piece, though vastly different, is “On Loss.” Narratives, tragedies, and tales from space travel, time travel and a crime-fighting superhero to war veterans, insanity, and a drive-thru cemetery splash across the pages. Whether losing a loved one, memories, innocence, or the mind, each one follows a different path of loss and its aftermath.
Every story unique, each touched with inflection and speckled with despair. Follow the authors of On Loss through the pain and impossibility to lessons learned, forgiveness, and the hope of a better tomorrow.
