Around 2003, I picked up writing again after a clean break of about 15 years. I didn't get straight back into westerns and used to write about anything and everything.
This is a collection of the short stories I wrote for fun. Over the years they've given friends, family and peers a lot of laughs. With the advent of Kindle Direct Publishing I've been able to extend them to a wider audience.
Here's what one reviewer had to say -
I love a good short story and that is exactly what Joanne Walpole writes. This collection is a series of light observations tinged with drama and tragedy that range from the dangers of smoking to the consequences of not paying attention when driving a truck. After a couple of stories I found myself wanting to find out what Joanne Walpole could come up with next - an unusual kind of page turner. 5 stars on Amazon.
Now, for a limited time between 6-10 February you can download my non-western book of contemporary shorts with a twist for free on Kindle. UK or US and the rest of the world.
If you're looking for something quick and light to read, something you can dip into at random, why not give it a look?
Here's the lowdown...
Short stories of everyday life with a twist in the tale. From the annoying husband to the embarrassing fall in public, if you sometimes wonder 'why me' or 'what if' you'll find a kindred spirit somewhere in these pages. Some are nice, some are naughty. So enjoy a titter or a belly laugh over a nice cup of tea and be glad your day's not quite as bad as you thought it was.
