Hello! My short story collection, ‘Quirky Tales to Make Your Day’ is now available from Amazon in e-book and paperback. Twenty six short stories that are almost guaranteed to make your day. Two crimes, two ghosts, aliens on the beach in Brighton, teenagers finding sweets in a lift, missing underwear. You get the idea…
I have published two of them in full previously on this blog (‘American Elevator’ and ‘V is for Victim’) here is a snippet of one of my favourites ‘Midget Gems’.
I took a deep breath and knocked on the door. That’s what Shona told me to do, ‘Don’t let your nan or your mam see, they’ll be able to tell we’ve been drinking.’ That’s what she’d said, before she ran off down Coconut Grove. We’d ran and ran and then waited for someone to let me in with their fob key. Running for our lives, but I don’t know why. It’s tomorrow now and I’m not going to bed, but OMG! How fast could we run last night! Well funny… I don’t think I’m ever going to sleep again… I’d better breathe now… I’ve been waitin’ ages now… I’d better breathe… It’s a million years since Shona and Kelly and me ran down… ran down? Where did we lose Kelly? Oh shiiiiiii-ugar!
Happy reading! Samantha
