Overview

The themes of love, loss, regret and hope are explored in this collection of four short stories which look at the hidden territory within ordinary lives and the triggers for seemingly random actions.

Escape – a new baby should bring joy and happiness, but the reality is often very different.

Underground – however hard you work to forget the past, it's still there.

High Noon – Friday night romance at the supermarket.

Footprints – love and the nature of relationships. The idea for this story came from the discovery of ancient footprints in the Australian outback.

Also included is the original opening section of Lives Interrupted and the prologue of Shauna's latest novel Still Death.

Meet the Author

To indulge my fiction writing habit I write technical manuals and training materials, and in the past I've worked as a trainer on subjects as diverse as computer systems, presentation skills, personal efficiency and a few other things I've long since forgotten. I could probably do with some personal revision on the efficiency materials!

What type of fiction do I write? Hmm, good question. My latest novel, Still Death, is a murder mystery, and Lies of the Dead is a mystery/thriller set in Cornwall.

Lives Interrupted is a contemporary novel set in London against the backdrop of a bombing, and looks at how the characters react and deal with this unthinkable atrocity.

Driftwood is a romantic thriller set in New Zealand and Australia.

I've also published a selection of short stories, Footprints, and a 'how-to' book, Smart Formatting, about turning your manuscript into a well-formatted eBook.

In addition I've had short stories published in Bravado (a New Zealand literary magazine), as well as several competition anthologies, and had articles published in The New Writer. My latest short story, Recipe for a Dinner Party, was selected for inclusion in the Awesome Indies Anthology (published November 2014).

If you're interested in the biographical details - I was born and grew up in England and have lived and worked in a number of countries. I never thought I'd find somewhere to call home until I arrived in New Zealand. I now live in Auckland, close to the beach, and while I still love seeing new places I always enjoy coming home.

Very boring short stories about run of the mill, average topics with zero originality. One of them didn'tven seem like a complete thought much less a complete short story.
