I’ve just released another themed collection of short stories. With Love And Kisses, as the title suggests, contains romantic stories.
Isabelle was dared to go in search of love, Julia attempts to win it, and Beverly searches in the small print. Anne puts on a lavish dress, Angie dons a nice new waterproof jacket and Tracie removes her clothes. All of them want the same thing – to love and be loved. Others use more extreme methods in their quest for romance; marriage brokers and weird dogs, historic ships, even stolen magic dust.
I currently have two stories in magazines published by DC Thomson. One of those Coloured Vision is in The Weekly News – the first magazine to ever send me an acceptance.
Growing Closer is in the 7th April issue of The People’s Friend – my first ever publication with this magazine. As the title suggests, it involves gardening.
Lots of my stories have a plant or gardening theme. So many that I’ve produced three collections of them, each containing 24 stories and plan to release another this year. The current titles are – Over The Garden Fence, Through The Garden Gate and Up The Garden Path.
They’re all available as paperbacks or ebooks and can be read for free with kindle unlimited or borrowed from some UK libraries.

I also like being in magazines. Well, when I say me, really I mean my name in the byline of stories. I’m not so bothered about geting my face on the page.
Today is the last chance to get my short story collection, All that Love Stuff, for 99p (99c). Tomorrow it goes back up to full price.
It’s not quite your last chance to book on the Writers Weekend Workshop in Devon next month, but if you’d like to join us, you need to make a reservation soon.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
To celebrate, my short story collection, All That Love Stuff is on special offer at 99p/99c from today until the 21st.
