Brighton Shorts, Book of short stories by Andrew Campbell-Kearsey
Andrew Campbell-Kearsey is one of the Aquillrelle Main Contest winners, and this is his book of short stores. He won with his poem "Magnum Opus"
Andrew is a former teacher. He was the headteacher of schools in London and Brighton. Now he writes full time, based in Brighton and has a website with over 120 of his stories www.andrewck.co.uk. He has had over thirty stories published but this is the first published collection of his stories. He writes about a diverse range of characters. This collection features tales of a stroke victim dealing with ungrateful children, a naive political secretary caught up in an expenses scandal, an unknowing stalker and a Jane Austen fancy dress party.
Andrew loves the challenge of writing short stories. Deciding on the right level of information and description for the reader is a delicate balance. He would hate to be described as predictable. Hopefully some of the endings will be a surprise to readers.
He loves experimenting with new genres and was thrilled to be a winner in the Aquillrelle poetry competition with his first attempt. Andrew is currently writing a novel.
