Entry forms

My ebook My Muse Wears a Purple Collar by Sandra James is now available on Amazon.

73 flash fiction stories, perfect quick reads when you have a few spare minutes.

Several were short-listed in writing competitions, some won prizes. Murder, romance, comedy and more, this diverse collection has something for everyone.

It is dedicated to my rescue dog, Lily, a double-dapple mini-dachshund who was born deaf and arrived during one of our earlier Covid-19 lockdowns, frightened and unsocialised. Lily quickly became my muse as ideas for stories and poems flowed on our several-times-daily walks.
