A collection of short stories that have won awards in various writing contests. There's a roadtrip in Kerala, squatting a luxury hotel to survive an earthquake, going for a vegan burger at a punk cafe, getting mugged by various animals and a couple of failed attempts at being a hipster. The stories received recommendations from contest judges such as Baroness Lola Young, Meg Rosoff and Jane Bidder, among others. Adventure, comedy, pathos and raccoons; there's something for everyone.

About the Author
Jay Wood gave up a fledging career as a blues musician when he heard the siren call of software development in the 1980s. He cut his teeth as a developer in San Francisco before making the leap to consultancy and has never looked back. Based in London, he honed his expertise through years of experience with IT consultancies advising just about any financial institution you can name. He's had success in project work all over Europe and India with stops back in his native USA. He's published articles in technical journals and presented at technical conferences. Nowadays, Jay resides in Wales where he's won a few awards for his writing. Worryingly, he has rediscovered the guitar and is threatening to disturb the tranquillity of local pubs.
