Breaking news – Introducing an exciting Anthology – Autumn Paths - by the Seasonal Collective.


Autumn Paths

Coming in October!


I am so pleased to be part of a dedicated group of authors who have worked diligently over the last nine months to create a unique compilation of short stories following the theme of autumn paths.

We all travel different roads, share different stories but the love of writing brings us together and we are beyond pleased with the final results.

Now we want to tell everyone.



“these well-crafted works of short fiction will whet your appetite for more”

James Fisher -Editor in Chief – The Miramichi Reader.


Nine writers – Seasonal Collective – from both sides of the Atlantic, including best-selling and award-winning authors, have created this miscellany of stories.

These tales of family, mystery, intrigue, adventure, and suspense will take you across continents, through time and space in this world and others. With a linking theme of autumn, discover new landscapes, encounter new and intriguing characters, uncover secrets and lies, and witness the resolution of old enmities.

Take the first step on this roller-coaster of an emotional journey, and you won’t be disappointed.
