But most of all they are poignant snippets to entertain the busy reader with bite size reads of escapism.You will want to read them more than once since the resonance of the after thoughts will prevail. How would you react if you had a secret of a loved one’s crime or living with Alzheimer’s? An old soldier tells a war- time tale and does Halloween bring back memories? A bullied child shows moral courage.How important are family loyalties and do you know the secret erotic desires of your fellow office workers? What perpetual hope would sustain you in an adverse situation? Is it true that you can be trapped between life and death or that Snow White didn’t marry? What will two women do if they love the same man, and what does friendship really mean?There is an embarrassing mother, a tragic personal loss and a young girl’s secret love that is forbidden by her culture.The story A Card From George won first prize on the Shortbread Stories Valentines competition.Readers comments on various stories include- The unexpected is totally captivating. Absolutely perfect, charming and brought a tear to my eye. I got lost in this from the start, touching and laced with gentle humor. This is excellent, weird, twisted and distinctly unsettling. On The Listener -You paint such beauty, a portrait of a soul appreciative of nature captured on the minds eye. There is a wonderful punch at the close.
