I have a new small book of shorts out, Life in four stories, and all proceeds go to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to help their COVID – 19 work.
COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the world. All our lives have been affected, whether it be by catching it, knowing someone who has been infected by it, tragically losing a member of our family or a friend, or having our lifestyle curtailed by restrictions to slow its spread.
But for people living in conflict zones throughout the world, the virus is widespread and another peril in their already vulnerable existence. With their health systems ravaged by war, their hospitals destroyed or seriously damaged, and immediate threats to life, such as gunfire, shelling and bombings, Covid prevention and treatment is sparse.
The ICRC works tirelessly to help protect those in conflict zones from this deadly infection.
By buying this book you are helping fund ICRC in its valuable work.
Thank you. I hope you enjoy it.
Life in four stories
Four shorts: two about life, love, and death; one a poignant and disturbing memory that dangles a question unanswered; and one a wild fantasy – plus the first chapter of my latest book, Otto and Frankie.
My latest novel is called Otto and Frankie – about a dying man’s fight against injustice, his wife’s unusual affair, and the love from his long-lost daughter.
Otto and his daughter Frankie could not be more different. He’s rich, an acclaimed author, human rights activist, and lives in England. She lives in New York, just about survives from one pay cheque to the next and hasn’t seen or spoken to her father for twenty years. Dutifully reunited by his impending death, she’s amazed to find him a kind and noble man who, while grappling with his wife’s bizarre affair, champions for the world’s forgotten and dispossessed to his last. After Otto’s death, Frankie’s admiration for her father leads her into a dangerous and life changing pursuit.
