This new collection of ten short stories can be dipped into throughout your day – a bit like a box of chocolates but without the calories.
Many of the stories have soft centres but some have more bite and crunch. You will find tales of romance, family life, love and loss, friendship and cosy crime. Feast and enjoy!

My new novel, ‘The Funny Business of Life’, is reduced to 99p/99c on Kindle Countdown from 29th December 2014 to 5th January 2015.
Miriam has a secret, a secret she cannot bring herself to share, a secret that leads to a brutal stabbing on Bonfire Night at St Cecilia’s School.
We travel back in time to investigate the mystery, meeting a host of colourful personalities along the way, including the bumbling Director of Music Lancelot Prokofiev, the predatory french teacher Celeste Dubonnet, Brunhilda the chocolate-loving music secretary, Dorian the sixth former who can understand complicated mathematics but forgets the day of the week and the egotistical conductor, Tristan Proudfoot.
Demons are wrestled and surprises abound before we return to Bonfire Night for the final revelation of a dramatically altered future.
‘The Funny Business of Life’ is a not entirely serious murder mystery and is the second book in the ‘Sing with the Choir’ series. The opening scene is set in 2014, eleven years after the end of the romantic comedy ‘Make a Joyful Noise’ (Book 1 in the ‘Sing with the Choir’ series). Both books can be read as standalone titles.
My new collection of short stories, ‘Miss Peach’s Dream’, is free to download for five days from today.
There are three quick reads in the collection.
The first introduces us to Miss Rosie Peach, a young teacher keen to sort out other people’s problems.
In ‘Best Song in the World’, Celia tries to intervene between her son and daughter-in-law; she has to revisit sad events in her own marriage in order to help the young couple.
The heroine in ‘The Lady with the Funny Hair’ has had enough – after all, even a worm will turn in the end.
At the end of the book during this free promotion, you will find the Prologue and first three chapters of my recently published musical mystery, ‘The Funny Business of Life’.
