Read full description of the books:
This book is the third in a series of short story anthologies following on from the bestselling Twenty Short Stories (Settling a Score) and Twenty One Short Stories (Key Changes) Both are still available on Amazon.
As with the other books Another Twenty Two Short Stories is a varied group of tales. This book contains no erotica, sci-fi or fantasy fiction.
However these are stories that should tickle the imagination and for the reader to ask questions such as:
Why did that happen? What happened next? Can I trust the narrator?
A girl playing her banjo on the beach is interrupted by a stranger,
a young girl in Moscow 1932 goes searching for bread,
a couple make a nostalgic return to Vienna,
a man struggles through an overgrown forest carrying a mysterious box,
a millionaire staring out of his penthouse suite is badly shaken by what he witnesses,
a young girl comes home to find all she has to eat is cold sausage and chips,
an Edwardian doctor’s life is turned upside down by the arrival of the British Prime Minister.
Twenty-two stories that are all very different and hopefully written to test the reader’s imagination.

Read information about the authorIt was a strange and twisting road that led to the publication of my first novel. From my humble beginnings, as an office clerk, to ownership of a multi-million dollar business I always maintained my love for literature.
Born and raised in Bristol, England. I spent most of my life in business, my companies turning over in the region of $500 million. The majority of that time marketing cars, eventually owning the largest Saab specialist in the world, before a bitter divorce forced me rethink my priorities. Particularly between 2003 and 2005 when I had to accept that I was no longer a millionaire but literally penniless. I avoided bankruptcy by the skin of my teeth and slowly rebuilt my life.
This led me to the life changing decision to leave the bustling city and move to live halfway up a mountain in the Welsh valleys. At the same time I started a part time six year English Literature course at Bristol University, and attended creative writing classes at Cardiff University. I left school at sixteen and this was my first taste of further education and an immense challenge.
I eventually adjusted my thinking to the academic life, and on 30 June 2015 had confirmation of my 2.1(Hons) degree from Bristol University. At the same time I also won the prestigious Hopkins Prize for my essay on Virginia Woolf and the unsaid within her text. Now the university courses are finished it will, with any luck, gives me plenty of extra time that I can devote to my fiction writing.
Thanks to the university experiences, my interest in English literature has flourished over recent years. Hopefully I have evolved as a writer from my earlier work in short stories (over ninety of them.) Although interestingly my first three novels have all been developed from a long forgotten short story.
Life is, once again, very good, and I live very happily halfway up a mountain, in the Welsh Valleys, with my wonderful partner Mari, and our rescue dog Wolfie.
