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.
