Short Lived

(2012)
A Novella by
"Fascinating witty stories which tantalise and thrill. With shocking suspenseful endings that make you wonder. A brilliant collection of short stories." E.D

"Four sensitive tales of contemporary lives which will stay with you long after you switch off your kindle." Jane Devers

"In my opinion the best of Ann Abrams we have seen." Kastania

Four short stories with a twist by Ann Abrams, the best selling author of "Mobius". Each story is a gripping tale of someone with a fascinating dilemma, and has a big pay off at the end. This collection will appeal to fans of Roald Dahl's 'Tales of the Unexpected', and they will keep you reading for your train ride home.

"The Veil" is about an arrogant young journalist who comes unstuck in a Twitter furore.
In "The Wire", a migrant's dreams of a small business take off in an explosive direction.
"Shot" is a war story where regrets build up to a dramatic conclusion.
And in the haunting "The Boy who forgot how to Swim" an exceptional kid at a British boarding school learns how to fit in.

Ann Abrams's Mobius, an exciting full length thriller, is available on Amazon too
