Short Stories

Anthology of my short stories

If you’re a fan of France you might like this: a collection of my short stories inspired by and set in France, entitled French Collection: Twelve Short Stories (November 2017). Some of the stories have done well in short story competitions. French Collection is available on Amazon Kindle and in ebook format on other online retailers, including Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple. A paperback version is also available, which makes a perfect gift.
