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!’

Mission accomplished!

Twist & Mix, my new collection of short stories, has finally been published. My deadline was the end of April – I have a few days to spare! The book is available from Amazon in paperback or to download. I hope you enjoy it. See the Twist & Mix page for a taster.

Twist & Mix is an eclectic cocktail of stories to tantalise every taste.

Mix the humour of village life with the fascination of the supernatural; the intrigue of crime with a smidgeon of fear; before adding a twist of emotion and romance.

Twenty two thought-provoking stories that will surprise and amuse; inspire the imagination and leave the reader wondering.

Nearly there!

Twist & Mix, the new collection of short stories, will be published before the end of the month. Stating that fact gives me a deadline, something I need to stop procrastinating! So, don’t hesitate to nag me if I don’t keep my promise

Twist & Mix – a concoction of tales to tantalise every taste – coming soon!
