Books Galore!

First of all, I’m so delighted that my daughter Victoria now has a collection of nineteen short stories and flash fiction available! As an aside from her YA writing (and while awaiting publication of her second YA novel), many of these have been previously published in literary journals. The beautiful cover was designed by her friend, Rebecca Johnstone (aka Dainty Dora) a talented artist/designer.

The stories include an assortment of quirky characters, such as an eccentric artist who resorts to extreme measures for his art, a feisty burlesque dancer, a bride walking the streets of Paris alone and an old lady who fakes her own death.

An emotional journey, exploring the light and dark aspects of love, loss, freedom and hope!

Available from Amazon. Paperback to follow soon.

Next Saturday (8th), I’m heading to bonnie Dundee to take part in a big Book Fair along with lots of other authors. Looking forward to it. If you happen to be up that way, please drop in say hello.

Today, I’m off to the RNA Scottish Chapter lunch in Glasgow – definitely more about talking and eating!
