Love is all you need


I’m delighted to bring you news of a brilliant new anthology Love is all you need.  A compilation of 10 great stories with heart – the winning tales of love from The Sophie King Prize 2014, chosen by bestselling author Sophie King.   


"I picked those that surprised me and also left a lovely warm feeling. A bit like a love affair, really …" Sophie King 

Love is all you need is available to download on Amazon HERE

The very lovely Sherri Turner’s story ‘Funny Face’ was one of the winners. It is a light-hearted, humorous story that also looks at how we see ourselves compared with how others see us.

Sherri was brought up in Cornwall and now lives in Surrey with her husband. She has had numerous short stories published in women’s magazines in the UK and abroad (under the pseudonym Bernadette James) and has won or been shortlisted in competitions for both poetry and short stories, including the Bristol Prize, the Writer’s Bureau competition and the New Writer Prize.  Her stories have also appeared in a number of anthologies.  If you would like to know more about Sherri, you can read her interview with the equally lovely Helen M Hunt HERE.  Do pop over and say hello.

I can’t wait to read Sherri's story and those of Alyson Hilbourne, Yvonne Eve Walus, Johanna Grassick, Pauline Watson, Melanie Whipman, Linda Triegel, Laurel Osterkamp, Helen Yendall, Mary Lally.  Their stories in turn hold the promise of romance, reflect on finding love, or show the lengths we'll go to for the special person in our lives.

I love dipping into short stories, and am looking forward to reading Sherri's (and all the others, of course!)
