A selection of short stories on the theme of ‘Happy’, published by Collections of Poetry & Prose
The aim of ‘Happy’ is to bring together stories and poetry all about happiness and being happy, and I’m thrilled to have six of my stories included in this anthology;
A Life Truly Lived – An old man looks back on his life and reflects on the highs and lows of a life truly lived.
Chasing the Australian Dream – An immigrant relates his experiences moving across the planet and adopting a life he never thought he wanted.
Dance with Me – A mother searches desperately for her missing child in a crowded mall.
Let It Burn – An introvert finds herself pulled out into the spotlight.
The Day You Sailed Away – A daughter pining for her missing father has to decide if she should remain where she is or abandon all she knows and follow in his footsteps.
The Meaning of It All – A woman considers her choices thus far and debates with herself as to whether or not the life she subsequently has is the one she actually wants to live.
In addition, Robin Barratt (the editor behind the anthology) interviewed me for the anthology and you can find the interview over at Collections of Poetry & Prose
