Encounters: A Collection of Short Stories

Encounters is a collection of short stories which encompasses the panoply of writing styles and the whole business of living, whether it's real, imaginary or simply wishful thinking! Encounters are part of the very fabric of life. Each and every story reflects a small nugget of the world we live in, a world where the seemingly normal can end up both funny and touching as well as sometimes sad and visceral. This anthology offers beautifully observed snapshots of life: taking the reader from the pavements of London to the beaches of Mumbai via internet dating and an afternoon at the races. Exploring love, loss, hope and disappointment, essentially this is a product of a group of writers who simply want to tell stories. Some will resonate, some make readers smile, some may even make them laugh out loud. Most of all we hope each and every one will entertain and make us realise that every encounter can make a difference to all of our lives.
