Home For Christmas
An emotive trio of stories with festive themes.
Rudolph the Brown-Nosed Reindeer
Rick isn’t looking forward to his lonely corporate Christmas, but it’s the season of goodwill and magic is in the air.
An off-beat love story. It’s time Rick wore his heart on his sleeve, or is it too late? Lessons in love from an unlikely source.
Jim’s Christmas Carol
Santa and Satan pay a visit. One brings presents, the other an unwelcome presence.
Paranormal reality. Jim’s played with fire it’s time he got his comeuppance, but from who?
Home for Christmas
Deck the halls with boughs of holly. Fa la-la la-la, la-la la-la. Tis the Season to be jolly...
Romantic-comedy. Pip might accidentally find her true vocation, but the folly of her fibs are about to catch up with her.
‘The three festive short stories which collectively form Home for Christmas are a delightful bunch of original tales which delve into the very heart and soul of Christmas. Beautifully crafted and with the author's fine eye for detail, each story leaves you with a wry smile and a realisation that Christmas all too often brings out the best, and the worst in us. The stories flow really well, and whilst the characters are not always likeable, the awkwardness of the everyday situations they find themselves in, add an authentic feel, and there is real enjoyment to be found in reading about their individual predicaments.
It's far too easy to dismiss short story writing as a bit of fluff and yet what's evident in Home For Christmas is just how much work has gone into each story, from the detailed plot development, through to the final polished article.’ Jaffareadstoo (Top 500 Amazon reviewer)
