Twenty Tiny Tales

and a Few Tails


Twenty Tiny Tales is a collection of twenty-two moralistic, humorous and heart-warming short stories. Some are inspired by the freedom and music of the 1960s, others are tales about wildlife, birds, dogs, caravans– even motorcycles. Let the stories transport you to the rural settings of the West Coast of Scotland and Northumberland.

‘Flower Power’ has all of the charm of the Sixties– a time of pacifism, love and euphoria, and follows the story of Clara and her florist business. ‘The Museum of Childhood’ follows Sadie, a twenty-two year old graduate who secured a temporary post at The Museum of Childhood, an old four storey building full of childhood related memorabilia, with a ghostly secret.

Twenty Tiny Tales will appeal to dog lovers, and readers who enjoy emotional, moving reads with the power to transport you to an array of settings and characters. The stories feature captivating plots, alluring depictions of the characters involved and most have a unique, shocking twist.

My name as a child was Elaine Joyce Thew. I attended Vane Road Primary School followed by Ferryhill Grammar Technical School. Having achieved my "O" and "A" levels I had a place at St. Hild's C. Of E. Teacher Training College, and qualified to teach in 1976. I did supply teaching for a while, then unable to achieve a full time teaching position locally, I entered the Civil Service. I worked for the Department for National Savings for 17 years, then the Department for Education for 11 years, during which time I was married and my name was Elaine Hunter.

By 1999 I had become a Senior Executive Officer and Internal Auditor, then in 2004 I decided to take Voluntary Redundancy.

I had always had dogs since I was 10 years old and my main hobby was dog obedience training and shows, so I decided as I loved dogs, to open my own dog care business: Canine Carers, which ran until 2015 when I decided to retire. I remarried in 2014 and became Elaine J. Bradley and have spent much of my time travelling and writing.
