Short Stories & Flash Fiction

lightning 143523Having seen one of my interviewees Rosanne Dingli say on a LinkedIn thread: “someone should write a blog soon about all the wonderful indie books available by very capable writers”, I challenged them to give me a <15-word synopsis for their book(s)… they are accepting the challenge and their books are appearing here.

What I’m after is:

    Hi Morgen, I really am amazed at the amount of work you put in on behalf of so many writers. A huge THANK YOU is well deserved. Do you ever get to leave your computer?

      You’re very welcome, Phyllis. I do leave my computer to walk my dog (who’s glaring at me as we speak – we’ve not been out yet today) but even then I’m writing, editing, reading… or listening to audiobooks if it’s raining.

       

We'd love you to leave a comment, thank you!
