Welcome to the wonderful world of drabbles! A drabble is a piece of writing precisely 100 words long. A challenge to write, but fun to read, they often tell a tale with a twist or encapsulate an idea or emotion. In this collection, perfect for dipping into in a spare moment, you'll experience the full gamut of emotions, amusing and shocking twists, several mini-series of drabbles, and a surprise or two along the way. And, true to drabble rules, everything in the book is exactly one hundred words in length, from the stories themselves to the foreword and this blurb!
Jonathan Hill burst onto the indie scene as an author in 2012 and has been entertaining readers with his fiction ever since.
After two years of writing short stories and novellas, he published his debut novel, FAG, a landmark in his writing career and, indeed, his life. The book, a stark insight into a 1930s boarding school for boys, is an exploration of important and strikingly relevant themes, some of which are intensely personal to the author himself.
The Maureen books, by contrast, are full of humour. The stories have received much praise, not only for their sheer entertainment value, but also for the way in which their comedy and poignancy are woven together.
His short stories cover a range of genres, from slapstick humour to chilling horror, via drama infused with emotion. He has published two eclectic collections and two 100-word fiction collections, one of which was written with his friend and fellow author, Kath Middleton.
Jonathan lives in Manchester, UK. He enjoys reading, photography and going to the theatre.
