The Shed

THE SHED - jpg thumbnailFour twisted stories…

At the end of September 2016 I independently published this 48-page booklet which contains four of my short stories.

Three of these stories had been published previously in journals and one of them – The Shed – won first prize in a Writing Magazine competition.

I asked the talented Lizzi Wakelin to illustrate the booklet and had the text professionally edited. The cover, including the typographical layout, I designed myself.

“Brilliant collection of short stories, expertly written. Ruth has a great sense of humour!”

The Shed is available as a paperback and as a Kindle verison, both on Amazon.co.uk.

Now all I need are some more reviews to boost sales!
