All 14 short stories have nowbeen published in ‘Treachery and Triumph’, which is set to be released next month.

Chris, who took up writing after retiring and has gone on to publish six books, said: “We were given a list of subject matter and following some deliberation my chosen genre was a fictional wartime romance.

“The piece is set in Britain with the story commencing at the outbreak of WW11.

“This is a new genre for me and whilst it is a very sad tale, I hope my readers will not ne disappointed and that it makes a few folks smile.”
