Here’s what I’ve been up to fairly recently …

26th to 31st August 2018

My latest short story collection Perfect Timing will be on sale at the introductory offer of 99p / 99c.

Whether we have long hours to fill, or not a moment to spare, time plays an important part in all our lives. We might not watch the clock, but we can’t escape the impact of the seconds ticking away. Time waits for no woman, neither will it accelerate at her command. It’s no more considerate of men, children and teddy bears.

Being a little early, or late, can have a big impact; it could mean missing a train, inheritance, or much needed meal. Or help us catch a crook, rescue a neighbour, show us what’s really important. Maybe it’s not our own timekeeping we have to worry about, but that of loved ones, colleagues or adversaries.

You can read each of the stories in this book in just a few minutes, or enjoy all 25 at once over several hours
