I'm delighted to tell you that my short story anthology,
Becoming Someone, is ready for release
in paperback and ebook formats on 23rd November 2018.

Which will be your favourite stories?

What shapes the way we see ourselves?

An administrator is forced into early retirement; a busy doctor needs a break. A girl discovers her sexuality; an older man explores a new direction for his. An estate agent seeks adventure beyond marriage; a photojournalist retreats from an overwhelming world. A woman reduces her carbon footprint; a woman embarks on a transatlantic affair. A widow refuses to let her past trauma become public property; another marks her husband’s passing in style.

Thought-provoking, playful and poignant, these 42 short stories address identity from different angles, examining the characters’ sense of self at various points in their lives. What does it mean to be a partner, parent, child, sibling, friend? How important is work, culture, race, religion, nationality, class? Does our body, sexuality, gender or age determine who we are?

Is identity a given or can we choose the someone we become?

With this, my third book, I’m trialling an online launch event on publication day (November 23rd) to celebrate with readers worldwide. But for those more comfortable in the physical environment, I’m planning a live event in Nottingham with other local writers on Sunday December 9th I’ll have more news of both these in my next email.

In addition, as a tiny token of my appreciation of the subscribers to my author email, I’ll be randomly selecting one of you to receive a signed copy of my anthology (anywhere in the world). I’ll announce the winner on or around November 19th who, postal services permitting, could have a copy in their hands prior to publication.
You can also find stories of mine in these new multi-author anthologies.
For more bedtime stories,
follow the links to my reviews of other anthologies I’ve recently enjoyed.
I’ll be sending out another email on or around November 19th – I know, I know, you don’t hear from me for months and then you get two newsletters four weeks apart – with an update on my online and off-line launch events. If that’s too much, it’s easy to unsubscribe (see below), but I do hope you’ll allow me to keep in touch.
