Ghosts, Resolution and Revenge: A Collection of Short Stories
This product is shipped via the most economical route and is estimated to be delivered within 2-3 weeks of placing your order.
A collection of eleven varied and original short stories.
A lost hat, a free lunch, a bullied schoolgirl, a piano that plays itself, an old man’s secret, a downtrodden wife’s revenge – these are some of the themes of the short stories in this rich and varied collection.
The eleven tales employ a mixture of humour, pathos, mystery and the supernatural to present a range of intriguing and challenging human situations. Some explore the decisions made by people at crisis moments in their life; others have plot twists and turns that the reader won’t see coming.
Veronica McGivney spent her childhood in a small seaside resort on the Isle of Wight where her mother ran a guest house for holidaymakers during the summer months.
At school, her main claims to fame were producing irreverent caricatures of the teaching staff and persistent truanting. Despite this, after gaining a BA and a PhD at the University of Exeter, she went on to pursue a career in education, working at the Open University and the Universities of Sussex and Nairobi before becoming a principal research officer at The National Institute of Adult and Continuing Education.
After years of writing academic books and reports, Veronica now enjoys the freedom of writing fiction – something she has wanted to do since earliest childhood. She is a multi-genre author who writes novels and short stories, some of which have been short-listed in British short story competitions.
She lives in a leafy part of Brighton where as well as writing, she tries to find time for painting, reading, gardening and playing tennis.
