The Dinner Lady and Other Stories

by

“Geoffrey was fortunate, he didn't have children. He had been married once before but she had had an affair, Sarah, the little tart. Jeannie wasn't like that, she was trustworthy and went to church. He doubted there would be much competition there...”

The Dinner Lady and Other Stories is a collection of short stories which brings characters to life with plenty of humour, and a touch of fantasy thrown in.

This collection shows how, in everyday situations, people think, interpret behaviour, language and gestures differently. The consequences of these misinterpretations, without establishing the truth or facts, can be damaging in the long term to a relationship – which readers will discover as they reach each tale’s conclusion.

From a business woman putting all her energy into work, to an unendurable bereavement, to the private life of a dinner lady, these tales span a wide variety of subject matter with very different, but equally intriguing characters.

The Dinner Lady and Other Stories is ideal for today’s hectic lifestyles, and makes for easy reading in a train, bus queue, or during a coffee break.
