Slings & Arrows /Gone Omnibus Edition
Although Slings & Arrows and Gone are available separately, I felt that as the stories are undeniably linked, it would be useful to combine the two stories - one true, one fantastical answer - in one volume. In so doing, I hope that after reading the events of the first, your mind will be open to the possibility of the truth of the second. Whatever you believe in this world, I'm sure that by the time you've read to the end of both tales, you will never think the same again.
Slings & Arrows
Nobody expects to lose a child but when it happens what can we do? In the sea of grief that seizes the soul how can we swim against the tide? But when that loss is compounded in each minute of every day, what do we do then?
Slings and Arrows is a story about the consequences of a moment, a moment, which separates a mother and daughter in ways impossible to imagine.
It charts their parallel lives, each suffering, one knowing, one not. It is brutally honest; an account filled with bewilderment, guilt, anger and pain yet it also holds the key to hope. That whatever happens, the bonds of love can never be broken.
After Charley dies in her office chair, how is it that she finds herself propelled into the mysterious world of Avalon? Upon encountering an essence, which insists is her daughter - the one she knows she left behind - insanity battles with fear inside her mind.
The further she delves, the more puzzling things appear, especially after she rises into the Orb of Caprice - a realm of fairies, talking flowers and goblins…and something else, something that lurks in the shadows ready to swallow her whole.
Can she realise in time what it is she must do…or has she left it too late?
Gone is a story inspired by a true event.
