A collection of short stories
A wonderful collection of ten short fiction stories from Diana Hunter – including one never-before-published short story – proving that Diana writes well in many genres, not just the erotic romance she’s known for.
Content: Non-erotic, general audiences
More about the stories within:
The collection begins with “Mouse” – take one field mouse, a harried occupational therapist and add an hysterical client into the mix for a fun action/adventure like no other – and continues with “Never”, another action/adventure with a much more serious tilt. “I Stay A Little Longer” continues the serious vein with a story of what happens after the funeral of one’s long-time partner. Don’t worry, “The Fairies of Lough Gur” lightens the fare with two love-sick fairies both pining over the same man. Erm, fairy.
“Blinding Love” continues the romantic theme, showing that a disability is no hamper to enduring love and “Bar Fight” takes a right turn – or is that right uppercut? – into a story that definitely needs to be longer. “Healing” is in the fantasy genre and poses some modern-day questions about our responsibilities to the Earth. Then along comes “Twue Wuv” and its homage to that wonderful movie, The Princess Bride. The collection ends with a new story, “Prom Night Prep”, where every woman will recognize the agonies of looking perfect.
The characters in these stories are sometimes in love, sometimes just having a bit of fun, and sometimes terrified but, in every case, they’re taking very definite steps along this journey we call life.
