Brilliant Short Reads

​This book is volume 6 in an ongoing series of short stories, perfect for reading while travelling and commuting. Inside you’ll find intriguing tales of revenge, of enlightenment, compassion and humour.

​Volume 6 of Can’t Sleep, Won’t Sleep features quite a bit of verse and a few 100-word stories. Also, there’s a lovely feel to the book, with the fairy-tale quality of Silk Fairies and Garden of Secrets, balanced against the realism of pimple popping, submission of a sitcom, and problems trying to write a true crime detective drama.


There’s so much to this little book, so if you struggle to find a novel that relaxes you at bedtime, try this short story anthology instead. A truly brilliant and relaxing short read!
