The characters in these fifteen stories, while separated by time, place, age and gender, are brought together in this collection, making it a melting-pot of personality, voice, setting and plot.

All the characters have been damaged by life in some way - whether by their own psychological problems or by external circumstances such as possessive mothers or abusive fathers. The various ways in which they rise up to meet their particular challenges lies at the heart of all their stories. And they are as diverse as the individuals themselves.

Diana Powell was born and brought up in Llanelli, South Wales.

She is the winner of the ChipLit Festival prize, the Allen Raine award, and the 2014, PENfro prize.
