We have published Allison several times and are pleased to offer all six publications as mobi-files in one package for just £4.00. Note there is no Kindle version of Alternative Renditions

We are also offering two paperbacks, From Light to Dark and Back Again and Alternative Renditions for £7.00.

Details of all of these works are listed below with a link to buy them individually from Amazon if that is what you prefer. We have a couple of books on offer for free - for whoever gets there first.  Scroll down! 

This is a collection of my flash fiction pieces. The tones vary from humorous to dark and back again but all reflect my style of fiction. Some have appeared on CaféLit (http://cafelit.co.uk) and others on Shortbread Short Stories. The latter are some of the very first pieces I wrote years ago, CaféLit is more recent and other stories are brand new for this collection.

 To Be… To Become is the theme of the 2018 Waterloo Festival Writing Competition. It is also the title of the e-book, which contains the sixteen winning entries. Some fantastic writing was offered and all of it was potentially publishable. We chose these because they told a good story, had a strong voice and were imaginative in their interpretation of the theme.

 The challenge was to write a bauble of a story. So we have a varied selection of snippets that sparkle. Once again we feel privileged to publish this fine group of writers. Each story is different and glitters in its own way.

In this collection of women's fiction, 140 stories, each 140 words long, each story was inspired by the first picture I saw when I opened my Twitter feed on that day. The dates are preserved and give an indication of how long it has taken to produce this and turn it into a book.

A collection of one hundred and ten pieces of flash-fiction and poetry. You probably won’t like all of them, and some of them might even disgust you, or make you uncomfortable. But stick with it. Look at overarching themes within each coloured block. Find the puns in certain titles. Research the colours that you’ve never heard of. Try and work out which stories are complete fabrications, which ones contain nuggets of truth,  and which ones are versions of real life events.







Clara will not be daunted. Her life will not end when her beloved husband dies too young. She will become a second mother to the young children who live away from home in order to visit a rather special school. When life becomes desperate for a particular class of disabled children growing up in Nazi Germany she takes a few risks. Is her ultimate faith in the goodness of human beings a fatal flaw that leads…
