“Visions” by Jackie Follett is published
An eclectic and entertaining collection of short stories
About the Book:
Find out how a red rose reveals the secret in a grandmother’s past.
Does a reunion bring back happy memories, or disappointment?
Read about a day that starts well and ends in disaster, or a date that turns into a nightmare.
Why feeling lucky does not always turn out well, and being a new ghost is a confusing situation.
If you enjoy writing and receiving letters, the friendships developed can have surprising results.
When is a criminal an asset to society? Or when does honesty imply a falsehood?
Nature can be a pleasure to the eye, an intricate part or life, or a danger for the enthusiast.
Life is not always what it seems, and people not always how they appear.
All this – and much more in this varied collection of short stories.
About the Author:
Jackie lives on the Isle of Wight, the birthplace of her maternal ancestors for over four centuries.
Having been a pensioner for nearly 20 years, she is a late-comer to commercial writing. Still, she had always loved putting imagination into words, and won several school prizes from the age of eight. Jackie also had a short article published in The Lady a few years ago, and was runner-up in a competition for a short story which was published in Warwick Castle’s collection of ghost stories.
Visions is her second book. Her first was self-published for family and friends. Entitled Jottings, it was a collection of fiction, fantasy, nostalgia and anecdotes written during her life as schoolgirl, teenager, wife, mother and pensioner.
Short stories has always been her genre. The inspiration for a novel has so far eluded her.
Although fast approaching 80, Jackie is not ready to be old just yet. She assumes as long as the body is capable of playing badminton and the brain can still play Bridge, she must be ok. Years are merely numbers. Age is all about attitude.
Excerpt from the book:
“A ghost. That’s the last thing I wanted to be. Well, it is the last thing, isn’t it? But that’s not the point. You know what I mean. They say we’re restless spirits, don’t they? Well, they’re certainly right about that. I had it all planned. Do everything I want, and then go quietly, without any fuss, at a time and place of my own choosing. That was it. Simple. I had a busy year ahead of me. Then it all went wrong, just because of a bit of wind.”
