The Storyteller Speaks

It only takes one event to change a life. What is that action, decision, occurrence? Whose life is affected? Changed forever?

In this eclectic mix of 21 short stories, flash fiction and poetry the pendulum swings between first love and murder, from soul-destroying grief to reconciliation. The tales veer from the sweet satisfaction of revenge to new beginnings, from heart-breaking miscarriages of justice to heart-warming Christmas misadventure.

One common thread binds them all; the belief that there is no such thing as an ordinary life; they’re all extraordinary.

Open your hearts and minds as The Storyteller Speaks.

My Review

The Storyteller Speaks is full of wonderful thought-provoking tales that don’t reveal too much and leave plenty of room for the reader’s imagination to take shape. The stories are very British and some are inspired by true events.

My favourites are, Sofia, The Game, and The Loss of a Patriarch which is a beautiful and most touching tribute to the author’s grandfather.

  1. I read this one shortly after Annika released it and really enjoyed it as well. I remember her deft use of descriptions immersed me in each tale. Nice to see it featured here today, Kev!
