Poetry, Short Stories & Plays
This is a collection of 39 short stories that explores what it means – what it feels like – to be alive; to be a fully-functioning human being. The stories represent life as we know it – but writ large, and in bold.
The stories are written with adults in mind; and the stories feature adults – their desires, passions, trials and tribulations. Here we find men and women of all ages - from 18 to 80 – from a plethora of different backgrounds and situations, and their desperate need – and struggle – to make sense, and success, of the particular 'hand' that they've been dealt by life's endless challenges and variety.
The stories focus on the great themes of life: love; and rejection. Betrayal, and heartache. Obsession, and desperation. Fear - and greed. These stories are intense, and powerful – but always with surprising twists and turns, and often astonishing conclusions. And, hopefully, they inspire reflection – and provoke thought.
Though many stories are dark and tragic, hope is nearly always present: as a rainbow, following the storm. The humanity, the dilemmas, and the destiny of every central character will, it is hoped, fully engage the interest and empathy of every reader.
