Here are some recently published reviews for my first collection of flash fiction stories:
“Faith in a Flash” is a series of short, 100 word sketches / stories / meditations on what it can feel like to be a Christian in different situations of life. They are fascinating, uplifting, thought-provoking. Highly recommended. Look for it on Amazon. Price £1.99

From page 15 of The Way, the Diocese of Carlisle’s Easter 2019 Newspaper
Faith lives. Faith breathes. Faith can be not quite what it seems.
Faith. It touches the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the sick and the healthy, those people with everything, those people with nothing. Some people are born into faith, others die devoid of faith. Some people live their lives with an abundance of faith, others barely have a pinch of faith. Some people spread their faith willingly. Some people hug their faith closely and never think to share it with anyone else. Some people’s faith flourishes. Some people’s faith is strangled by weeds.
The stories in this collection contain characters like these, as well as others. The one hundred and fifty-one flash fiction stories in this collection are split across fifteen themed chapters: Flagstones; Charity; Humility; Forgiveness; Holy Spirit; Facing Fear; Love In Adversity; Glorifying God; Joyfulness; Shadows; Darkness; Prayerfulness; Peacefulness; Hope and Soulfulness.

Here’s what readers are saying:
I do not think there is anything else like this anthology. Varied and wide-ranging stories and characters yet all drawn together by faith.
The author has poured his heart and soul into these glimpses of faith.
I love it! [Joyfulness: These Bells and Shadows: Those Bells] So very true, the two sides to the Christian faith and church goers. Both are apt and totally believable! Nicely done giving us two stories for the price of one.
If your (character’s) camera snapped a photo of your prose, it would need no airbrushing to be beautiful. [Flagstones: My Camera Never Lies]
I never tire of reading this [Hope: The Bread of Life] and recalling the randomness of its inspiration.
‘Empty of ego yet full of grace.’ and ‘Gone is flesh. Gone is bone. These lights lead the way home.’ What poetic and memorable phrases! [Flagstones: Cloistering]
I do think this story is excellent – this story in 100 words about oneness, which got me thinking that after we die we cease to be separate individuals, and we are happier when alive if we try not to be separate. [Soulfulness: A Snowflake’s Moment]
