by Shirley Stones

A story of survival spanning two wars. It begins with a soldier who was shell-shocked during the First World War, and follows his fortunes from the POW camp, through to his marriage to the German girl who nursed him, and his subsequent family life.


I am a vegan, was divorced about six years ago, am now retired, and live quietly in a small flat in Cambridge. I practice yoga every day.

Previously I was a schoolteacher for some years when my children were little. Later I ran a market stall for bric-a-brac, and then I had a little antique shop for over ten years. For the last twelve years, I have looked after rescued ex-racing greyhounds.

Over the years, I have always written poetry and was keen to take a creative writing course when a friend introduced me to it. The tutor was particularly inspiring and conveyed the idea to me of turning a short story I had written into a book. The Survivor, my first novel, is the result, and I am now working on a book of short stories. I hope to give a percentage of my book sales to Greyhound Rescue.
