Featured Reviews

Something Quite Beautiful is a collection of seven short stories based on relationships and life’s challenges. Each one draws the reader in and takes you on a journey with the individual characters who you find yourself championing and desperate to know more about.
This is a fantastic book and although the first story focused on the prisoners in a remote correctional facility was my favourite, each one has its own charm and was throughly enjoyable.
Highly recommended.

This collection of short stories were healing for my bruised heart. Funny, smart, thought-provoking. This book is such a treat, life affirming without being too sweet. This would make a great Christmas or holiday gift for the readers in your life. Bonus, the narration of the audiobook was excellent.
