Bronwyn Elsmore

Author Bronwyn Elsmoreabout this book: A novel is a marriage. A short story a love affair.

Short stories are "the way we live…what our friends tell us, in their pain and joy" [Andre Dubus]; "tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and other dreams," "journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and be back in time for dinner" [Neil Gaiman].

Many prominent authors have been enthusiastic writers of short stories, describing them as the most disciplined and difficult form of prose writing.

Bronwyn Elsmore's collection These Islands Here – Short Stories of the South Pacific, includes 32 fictional tales that present the varied facets of living in the South Pacific. Reviewers say: "the author has mastered the art of the short story"; "they all have one common factor – they are each beautifully crafted".

Most have been published previously, several have won short story competitions.

Available in print and as an ebook for Kindle.
