Tall Stories

 

cityscape-300x128

The ‘Tall Stories’ Project is a collaboration of new authors who have between them created a shared story-telling environment. Each author has allowed their ideas to intertwine with those of the other authors, sharing and developing each other’s stories, characters and locations every time a story is told.

 

The Writers

In addition to myself, there are a number of other authors who have contributed to this shared story environment by writing stories or by contributing specific characters and localities to this ever-growing world.

Peter John: – The Launderette; Ernie; Johnny; Mary and Harriet and the short story – Ernie: an Upstanding Member of Society.

Adam Bigden: – The Cobblers; Reg; and the short story –The Letter.

Connie Dalhart: – The Globe and Compass Public House and the Hymn’s Vale Medical Centre; and the poem – The Globe and Compass.

Charlie Dee: – The Chicken Shop; and Stan Black.

Mal Hod: – The Beauty Boutique; the Pie and Mash Shop; and Diedra.

Chris Raven: – The Coffee Shop; The Oswalds; Henry Dunston; Dorothy Seers; Mike and Trevor; Charles and Benedict and the Musevary Towers Neighbourhood Watch; Humphrey, Guy Matthews; and Doreen McClusky.
