Short Stories

Promotion short stories and date

Short stories allow us to escape from real life in those precious moments when we are not working, looking after children, running errands and doing chores.

My first book of short stories was Missing. The title story was about a child who was not cherished by her mother, but can she find happiness? The book, recently revised, has tales in many genre. The next book was Pebble on the Beach. The title story is about a family who find a way through the grief of a loved one. Other stories will take you away from reality and explore many situations. My third book is The Mermaid. The title story won third prize in a writing competition. It’s about a man who is dealing with his own problems and thinks the owner of the hotel, where he’s staying, looks like a mermaid. Is it his imagination and can she help him?

All these ebooks are going to be free on Friday 31 July to Sunday 2 August (inclusive). I’ve kept them down to $0.99/£0.99 right through the summer. In these times we all need a bit of escapism. Why not grab a copy?

All my books are free on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited and most are available in paperback.

Des square cover final

All my children’s ebooks are free on 28-29 March. If you’re in the middle of reading another book with your child why not download these and save them for later?

Desdemona the dragon without any friends is a charming children’s picture book to read to a younger child. Desdemona is looking for friendship and she learns that friends don’t have to look like you.

My other children’s books are chapter books. Each chapter can be read as an individual story and they make up a longer story. These are ideal for children to read themselves or to share with their favourite adult.

The Green Book is the story of Alana, who discovers a magic book. Alana has many adventures with her friends and the magic book. She learns ways to solve problems whilst having loads of fun.

Promotion children stories

Tiny Tyrannosaurus tells about Isaac’s life with a magical tiny tyrannosaurus. They have many adventures and learn about staying safe and not being greedy, among other things.

Pablo the storytelling bear is my latest children’s book and tells the stories of two polar bears. One is in captivity, but has some magical adventures and the other is free and struggles to survive. This is certainly an opportunity to help children learn about our fragile Earth and how animals can become extinct, but it is a fun book to read.

Earth in the fifth millennium is recovering from wars that made large parts of it uninhabitable. With few people to help him, he must learn who are his friends quickly.

Alien Town Between Mountains

The Visualizer tells of Seek’s journey from exploitation to freedom and finding her way in a troubled world, where war is on the horizon. She too has a gift; the ability to change her form and her surroundings. Can she help her family and Vrail survive?

The Truthfinder and The Visualizer are free for a few more hours. If you haven’t read these books, why not downoad them now.

As ever, all my books are free on Kindle Unlimited. I hope you can find something to enjoy.

All my ebooks are free on Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited all the time but if you don’t have that, The Truth Finder and The Visualizer are free from Friday 10 January to Sunday 12 January 2020.
Both books are about life on Earth in the fifth millennium, where some people have special gifts. Life for those people is especially hazardous as greedy people are out to exploit those with gifts. Add to this, that Earth has been damamged by nuclear war and much of the land is contaminated, so human life is in a precarious balance, but still there are battles to be fought.

I’m hoping to release the final book in the trilogy this year, called The Healer and here’s a sneaky peak at the cover.

Happy Reading and Happy New Year!
