Overview

Within these pages you will find 25 short stories. They average approximately 1700 words, each story taking around ten minutes of your time. There is absolutely no theme and they are in no particular sequence or categorised in any way. Indeed to read from cover to cover would probably be a mistake. Better to just drift back and forth, picking at random, which, by the way, is exactly how they have been put together. You will find each different, each hopefully a pleasant little read. Some involve ghostly goings on, others a little detective work and still others a tad goofy; just a little nonsense with something, hopefully, to raise a smile. When taking that welcome break, cup of tea or coffee in hand, this is a little book that can literally be dipped into at any point for that ten minute relaxing read.

Meet the Author

A.W. Lambert was born and raised in Battersea, south London, England. After completing his National Military Service, during which time he was engaged in active service in the EOKA terrorist conflict on the island of Cyprus, he embarked on an engineering career in the British aircraft industry where he also became a qualified pilot. In 1992 he retired from industry to follow his two main passions: the playing of his favourite music, traditional New Orleans Jazz and Creative Writing. After studying with The Writer’s Bureau, he developed extensive experience achieving success in magazine article and short story writing before moving into the field of full length Action/ Adventure. A Treacherous Past, his first published novel, introduced retired London Metropolitan Police Inspector, now private investigator, Theo Stern for the first time. Since then follow up novels have seen Stern and AW’s other absorbing characters involved in increasingly intriguing and dangerous scenarios.
Take a Break, is AW,s first published compendium of short stories.
After raising two sons; one who now lives in Boston, USA, the other in Melbourne, Australia, A.W. lives with his wife, Valerie, in a tiny hamlet on the North Norfolk coast of England.
