Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Tales From The Cottage is a collection of Flash Fiction written by the author in 2012. The eighteen stories range in style from the macabre to the heart-rending. You'll never look at a robin, or a bat, in quiet the same light again, and for certain, you'll check your facts before jumping from your office window. This collection is the perfect companion with which to curl up in front of a log fire.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Peter Barns

Author - Poet - Versifier Born in Harlsden on the outskirts of London in 1943, Peter Barns spent his formative years living beside Regent's Park. Educated at a Secondary Modern school, he left with just one qualification in 'O' Level Art. Passing through a variety of occupations after leaving school, he finally ended up working in the construction industry as an electrician. After taking his City & Guilds, he became an electrical engineer and spent the next twenty years working on building sites. Somewhere in there he got married and divorced - a couple of times - and had two children. He moved to the Highlands of Scotland in the late 1980's along with his partner. With the move came a new occupation - counselling people with alcohol and drug problems - which he did for six years before managing a charitable company recycling redundant computers back into the community. Now retired he spends his time writing and refurbishing houses.
