A look at the diverse mix of stories of Us & Them - something for everyone!


Let's look at the thirteen diverse stories in Us & Them, from true stories to comedies to Oh my God moments and dedications.

In order as they appear in the book

One simple song - An eight year old girl decides to write a song for her sick friend. A beautiful story. Dedicated to my daughter Tilly, when she was learning the guitar.

The price of adventure - A mother and daughter's life changing meeting. Dedicated to Sally Jones and Jenny Corvini, mother and daughter who left this life twenty days apart.

The messiest eater in the world - Inspired by Tilly when she was six. She was messy then. It's a cute story. A comedy with a heart warming ending.

The obligatory obituary (Life after death) - Everyone writes to mourn the loss of Claude but how did he really die? Is the answer in the messages?

Calling time - A man remembers his life as he mourns the loss of his partner. Dedicated to Michael Sydney Jones

Why did the man with the mullet cross the road? - Based on a true story. A comedy.

The night we should have died - Based on a true story. Unfortunately not a comedy. I should have been killed at seventeen. How we didn't all die is absolutely miraculous.

Formerly known as slut - A woman recalls her life on the streets but she's no victim. She's a survivor.

No egg on his face - A confrontation between the might of a German tanker division and simple villagers during World War II. Specically, a mother and her two sons.

And the wise man said, I can't be bothered - Four teens meets up in a country town for an afternoon of fun. A comedy inspired by my teenage days.

Racing to see the fall of the Berlin Wall - I visited Berlin to see history unfold in late November in 1989.

Revenge is a dish best served warm - A bitter Romance Reality TV contestant decides to get revenge. A comedy.

The lost tears of New York - She stuck out amongst the thousands of strangers on the street. Another true story from when I was backpacking at twenty three.

The perfect gift this Christmas!

Please help me share the word. Simply sharing the trailer would help me out. If this book doesn't do anything, then I will be walking away from book publishing. The amount of time, effort and money I put into it for a small handful of people isn't worth it. It's mostly what it does for me mentally. It's depressing and no way to live. So please... give it a share.
