Book Description

Big Stories in Two Little Sentences.

What started as a writing exercise exploded into an obsession, grew into a website and then took over and successfully ran a small chain of English-themed catapult restaurants for a number of years.

Or something like that.

It's Flash Fiction at its finest. Dark, happy, weird ... brief little adventures into another place.

Come read something short and exciting - like a love letter tattooed on a Smurf.

More About the Author

Hurro peoples!

I've been a writer and editor since 2003 when I made my first professional sale adapting Pinocchio for Penguin Books. I was paid the grand total of $0.00 - woo hoo!

I then took on some other freelance writing work for which I earned more zero until I became an editor and writer for Funtastic Publishing in 2004. I then wrote *everything*.

Disney colouring books, storybooks, Pixar stuff, Warner Bros, Universal Studios, sticker books, educational series, non-fiction books, sales sheets, birthday invitations ...

It was great fun but there is a limit to how many Princess stories a man can write before he starts to lose it. Live happily ever after? Not this time, Princess.

So I dove into freelancing and worked all over the place. Kids flying British Airways and Qantas get activity/story books that I wrote to keep them entertained. Mimes being sent into war zones read comforting words from me. You may even find yourself gripped by some packaging text on a hairdryer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ironic, I was eating a sandwich when I read this 21 Mar. 2013

It's a collection of 100, two-sentence stories; the book takes only ten minutes to read so you're not expecting it to change your life.
There were a couple of corkers in there that I loved (worth the time over a lunch break just for them) but most of the stories I was left just thinking, `oh'. I'm not sure if I've got a stunted sense of humour or if maybe they weren't really meant to be funny.

This was a free kindle download so what am I complaining about?
Just shows that even if something is for nothing, people will grumble!

1.0 out of 5 stars Would have preferred a one-liner! 27 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The author of this creation uses just two sentences to convey his wit.

In the end, I'm sad to say, it was often telegraphed, clumsy and s...silly!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit disappointing 19 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was expecting this to be a lot funnier or maybe thought provoking than I found it to be. I can only remember actually laughing at 1 of the "stories" but maybe it just isn't my sense of humour.

Glad I got it for free. I would definitely read the sample first to see if it is your cup of tea before buying.

2.0 out of 5 stars oh deary deary me 5 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
ok - what can you expect from 2-sentence stories. Not a lot so I shouldn't be disappointed, right??
I should have followed my first impression and "left it on the shelf" but morbid curiosity got the better of me. Wish I hadn't - I'll never get that time back now. Gutted!

1.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelmed 23 Aug. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this thinking it sounded a bit different and quirky. I was very disappointed. It was far from clever. It was more lke a book of bad jokes and punch lines than the 'two line stories' it promised.
