‘Shorts’ is a new collection of tales, inspired by everyday life, combining the ordinary and the extraordinary in a thought provoking and entertaining way. The stories cover a range of topics from greed and temptation, loneliness and fear, through to modern day struggles and growing old and even to murder itself. Humans and animals walk through the tales, making us laugh, cry, explore and think with some unexpected twists along the way. Told with humour, compassion, insight and love, ‘Shorts’ is ideal reading for a quiet afternoon curled in the chair with a cuppa to hand. What are you waiting for?
