Are you Lost?

At long last I have revised my paranormal novella, Are you Lost? When first published, in two parts, the characters refused to leave my head. ‘My story is not finished ‘ insisted each character. So, after much thought and delving into the supernatural, I have completed part three and – Your story IS finished people! Haunt me no more – please!

Available from Amazon in paperback and e-book.

Enjoy my spooky tale!

The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

Twist & Mix, my second collection of short stories, has won a Red Ribbon (Honourable Mention) in The Wishing Shelf Book awards.

I am pleased with the Readers’ Comments and thought I’d share some of them with you:

‘An interesting array of writings. I enjoyed many of them. Character development seems to be the author’s no. 1 skill. I particularly enjoyed A Chance For Charlie.

Female reader, aged 56 ‘I enjoy a good short story; perfect just before bed. There was an excellent mix here and plenty of fully formed characters to enjoy. Much of the writing was fresh and descriptive. Very enjoyable.’

Male reader, aged 42 ‘This author is very good at ‘showing’ and not ‘telling’, a rare gift.’

Male reader, aged 51 ‘Amusing in many ways and, as the blurb suggests, even thought-provoking. A short story is a tough sell but the author worked hard to offer the reader a set of well-written, character-driven shorts.’

Female reader, aged 42 Catchy Quote ‘A provocative mix of shorts; character-driven and, often, thought-provoking. A Red Ribbon winner!’
