Local author Eithne Cullen has published a collection of short stories.
“Over the years, I’ve had some success with my short stories. Some have won or been commended in competitions, others have been published in anthologies. I decided to find a home for them and came up with this collection. There are a variety of stories: a couple are a modern reworking of fairy tales, one was inspired by my favourite Jane Austen book Persuasion, one is set in the beautiful Harpa Concert Hall in Iceland and others were inspired by stories I’d heard, which invited themselves to be written,” said Eithne.
Pencils and other Stories (paperback: £2.99) is the South Woodford resident’s third book to be published, having released The Ogress of Reading and Never not in my Thoughts in 2018.
