Because it’s important to me that you use your gifts for the benefit of others, you will see that I tend to take part in anthologies that support various charities. I will post the actual stories in full here on my site in the hope that if you enjoy them, then you will spend your hard-earned money to see what the other authors have to offer and support the cause. It might seem like I’ve chosen some random charities but I promise there is a rhyme and reason to it. If I’m contributing, then it’s because I want to do something to help and that’s the best way I know how!
Fields Of Gold
part of the BESTSELLING Stories For Homes anthology for Shelter is out now on Amazon and Createspace.
You can read my story Fields of Gold in full here on the site here
Stories For Homes is for Shelter who are a charity in the UK who help homeless and those threatened with homelessness. I know that I wouldn’t fancy spending a wet, cold night out on the deserted streets. I wanted my short to be an exploration of what, who and where home actually is. Alina and Frauke star in my little story set in a seaside town. Alina doesn’t want to spend the summer back at her parents house especially after she loses the court case against a man she’s tried so hard put behind bars. Frauke is the last person she wants to see having never forgiven her for leaving their home village.
And you can hear me reading from it during the launch here:
To celebrate two years of Stories For Homes, I wrote a follow up piece to Fields of Gold called 22 Carrots In The Snow here.
