Short stories

Romantic Stories from Women's Magazines

'Worth it for "The Sandman" alone. An award winning, sensitive and highly visual story with a universal theme that, some day, will inspire a lyrical movie.'
PEN & EAR

'...not all glossy women's mag romances here. There are others that are, let's say, challenging. A collection pitched at women of all hair colours and mentalities.'
MOVING FINGER REVIEW

Entertaining stories for women. And not all boy meets girl...

Republished from Women's Weekly, Cleo, Woman's Day, Argosy UK and ABC Books. Romantic, funny, peculiar and sometimes bizarre!

For instance, there's The Sand Man - an award-winning story about a crazily-in-love couple who build a huge sand man on the beach. What happens then is something to experience. Then there's The Snag - a story about a man who can do anything, except relate to women. And Serpent for Celia. Do sea serpents exist? Of course not. But still... And The Man Who Made Whistles - where a hen-pecked husband learns to control mosquitoes. In Spinster, an 'old maid' suddenly discovers a different way to live. In Brass Teeth, a Prime Minister's wardrobe malfunction changes the course of history. In Time Waits for Nolan, a complacent retiree abruptly slides into a decomposing world. Then, just to tone you up, there's the arid, eerie SF world of Tub Travellers. And, finally, The Stand-in - a searing re-take on the Crucifixion based on esoteric research. (21,500 words)
