|Our Beautiful Child
Three women. Three stories. One pub.
People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seeks sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse.
But in fact, that’s where their troubles begin.
Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.
Our Beautiful Child explores the defining moments that turn emptiness into eternity in this spine-tingling collection of literary ghost fiction stories.
The Boathouse collects spirits and wanderers who must all come to face with their loneliness in these woven stories, filled with twists and turns until its stunning denouement.
These poems fly from Earth to Jupiter and back, but one can feel the sweat on the skin for the whole trip. Lenses, including those of our eyes, let the sky-watcher chart the trip of the time-traveler from beginning to end. We are all star-children, born into the universe, where we must wander from place to place and time to time in search of our own bliss.
The trip also takes us to “inner space.” In three parts, Sun Dogs, as a themed collection, attempts to capture moments of wonder, loss and healing: 1. Planetarium, 2. Jealous Planet, and 3. Cosmic Therapies. The poems speak of the human journey – the odyssey of experience in a galaxy filled with legends and natural phenomena. Yet, the collection promises “cosmic therapy” – a time for something great.
|Every Other Day But This
Elsa goes out one afternoon to post a letter. She knows she mustn’t be long. After all, her parents-in-law will shortly be arriving. But before she can return home, things start to spin out of control. It all begins when she decides to help an old lady with her shopping. One thing leads to another and soon she’s lost and far from home. As her chaotic journey through East London unfolds, Elsa is forced to confront some pretty uncomfortable facts about her life and marriage. It makes her wonder: is she really just a victim of a series of unfortunate events, or is something else going on?
A single father who is a new IRS agent, his cherished and imaginative little girl, a divorced woman having second thoughts about motherhood, a couple who think two ways about becoming parents, a mysterious and crooked financial wizard — these are the people from whose relationships, enterprises, gains, and losses this story is woven.
Has there been a crime and, if so, can the miscreant be caught? How valid are the claims of a father and a mother? When they clash, what becomes of their child?
Fran Lock has been storming the London scene with her refreshing, gutsy poetry. Stunning, honest, stark, and somewhat unforgiving, Fran Lock's verse lingers in the mind and sheds new light on a modern woman's search for identity and meaning.
