About

Cage Dunn is an author. The stories told or written by Cage have been out and about in the world for some time. Now the stories are published, it imbues the title of Author.

This Writer of Stories – the main job is to create the product – has published these stories for your pleasure – and to chill your blood. See Titles for all complete works (some shorts in PDF), and don’t forget to click on Works in Progress to see what the future holds.

Born and educated in Australia, qualified in Professional Writing and Computing, worked in so many jobs the list goes on for too many pages – the time has come to share the words with the World.

All words on this site that are strung together to make a connection of sense – they’re all mine – copyright to Cage Dunn. See Policies for further details.

But – as of 2017 – more people have joined Cage; these people:

[moi] Cage Dunn is a storyteller, a dreamer, an imaginer. Some would say Fibber, Fabricator, Teller-of-Tall-Tales. Yep – a storyteller. Met a few people on the travels around everywhere, and they have something to contribute to the knapsack of stories Cage carries around, to draw on whenever the words are ready to become real. Now it’s time to put all those life experiences into stories.

Shannon Hunter is a dreamer and wanderer. She loves a good story, and can weave a deep hole in the world in the attempt to get to the best understanding all who live and breathe there. Welcome to her world, where horses, dogs, cats and all sorts of critters have their own thoughts and dreams and stories to tell. Shannon lives wherever she damn-well pleases, and moves on in the flash of a distant fancy. She will be where the stories are rich in the ground-swell of need and completion. Yes, she may appear to be off with the fairies, but that’s what happens when you chase story.

Karel Jaeger is an adventurer who loves to travel, in the real world, in the e-world, and in the psyche world. And that’s where he lives: in the places he travels. Keeps in contact with people through the ubiquitous e-links – even if he travels to the dark spots, to the darkest caves, to the blackest minds. He’ll be back – has too many more words to share.

Rose Brimson is retired from all things but words. She writes every day – stories, columns, offerings to the e-world, politicians (because they just don’t behave well, do they?). She has a lot of words left over, so she came to the group to offer the advice of a Nan, and to be the strong and loud and proud.

Cisi De is a quiet person who loves to disappear into the world of story. She is learning how to toughen her skin so she can make bigger stories and share them with the world.

Enjoy.

WIP’s

 

I knew I was a storyteller ….

When I was a child
A very young child
I had many siblings
Some were afraid of the dark
Some liked to listen to the dreams of far, far away
All liked to know
Someone was there
To make the darkness into light
Make the monsters be friendly
Give them dreams of a tomorrow
Where they could be wise
Or wealthy
Or famous
I would tell them the stories
Make them up
Take other people’s stories
Make them our own
Whisper them quietly
Speak them loudly
Sing them badly
I did not write these stories down
But I was the storyteller
And they will all tell you
The story
Of their own oral book store.

Received a mention in Barry Dwyer’s book, Systems Analysis and Synthesis – for people who enjoy the challenge; who want to understand what it (‘it’ being business analysis, systems analysis, and putting it all together) means and what it can do.
