On Monday 7th December at 8pm we’re holding an online launch for my new collection of short stories, Kremlinology of Kisses, published by Blue Door Press.

It’s a collection of twelve short stories exploring the significance of a kiss in the lives of multiple characters. From Renaissance Italy to a prostitute’s bedroom in contemporary London, from the USSR under Brezhnev to a 1970s package holiday in Spain, from a hospital ward today to a ‘bubble’ far in the future, the stories adopt different voices and genres, creating a kaleidoscope of contrasting angles and styles.

At the launch, I’ll be reading from the collection. There will also be an interview conducted by award-winning Caribbean writer, Lawrence Scott, author of novels including Witchbroom and Light Falling on Bamboo, as well as a wonderful collection of short stories Leaving by Plane, Swimming Back Underwater. There will be a chance to ask questions about Kremlinology of Kisses and my writing and a virtual popping of champagne corks!

Friends, family, colleagues and other close associates will be receiving invitations but everyone is very welcome!
