Love themes in Sunbeams from the Heart tell of nostalgia, bright new beginnings, homecoming, second chances, and the unexpected. The stories propel the reader on a journey through Scotland, England, The Bahamas and rural America.
The Lady magazine, England, wrote about my short story Love at Sunset, that first appeared in their July 19th 2013 Summer Collector's Edition and which now features in Sunbeams from The Heart: “Hugely popular … Charming and surprising!” Most of the stories in this short story collection were first published in The Lady.
I was delighted when shortly after its release in 2015 Sunbeams from the Heartmade Amazon's top 100 paid best-sellers' list in the Literature & Fiction/Short stories category next to Stephen King’s Hearts in Atlantis. And the following month, Sunbeams from the Heart again made the top 100 paid bestsellers' list in the Literature & Fiction/Short Stories category, this time alongside Agatha Christie's Miss Marple - The Complete Short Stories. The book has recently been updated.
Short stories are little gems of entertainment and enlightenment that you can fit into a busy schedule. In addition to his best selling novels, author Stephen King has written dozens of short stories, most published in book collections. Agatha Christie also wrote many short stories as well as her famous detective novels.
An Amazon reviewer wrote about Sunbeams from the Heart: “While each story is unique, all share that one common thread we humans yearn for: LOVE….Valentine or not, Sunbeams From The Heart is indeed a delightful read.”
And another customer said: "What charming stories I enjoyed them all....away from war politics bad television, just lovely stories, they calmed my mind and lifted my soul."
Excerpt from the short story Love at Sunset: “Once out of sight from the main road, they relaxed on a seat beneath a casuarina tree and kissed. Then they gazed out across the sapphire blue sea to a lone sailboat on the horizon. The sun was going down, the sky like an artist’s canvas with gold and orange brush strokes. The sweet aroma of a barbecue drifted along the sea shore.”
