Yeah, these announcements are coming hard and fast at the moment (there’ll be more soon). But then I have summer holidays at the moment and the extreme heat of the past few days made it impossible to work anywhere except in the basement (where there is no internet access) and also made it difficult to concentrate on writing new words, so I decided to use the time to whip some more of my old words into shape.
The latest result is Heartache, a collection of three short stories of broken hearts and love gone wrong. The title story is actually my first published story ever, reprinted here for the first time since 1996. And since the newleaf issue wherein the story originally appeared has been sold out for ages, this is your best chance of reading it.
Matt was the great love of Lydia’s young life. But how can she possible survive, knowing that he loves another, that red-headed bitch Jeannie?
They got their happy ending, the white wedding, the house, the suburban life together. But every morning when he leaves for work, she secretly hopes he won’t come back.
Three years ago, AJ and Diane were a couple. It didn’t work out and Diane grew a hard shell around her wounded heart and adopted a new tough personality to survive. But when she runs into AJ at a wedding party, the past comes crashing back all at once.
