'A Cottage in Shottery' is historical fiction based on fact. Most of the characters, (but not all) are real people and the events described actually happened, although what led up to them, and the eventual outcome, is imaginary. The story is woven around two women in the life of William Shakespeare, his wife and one of his daughters. There are many myths and legend about the Bard and I have chosen just a few, so the story is sometimes controversial'. The novella is divided in two parts with Anne and Judith telling their own stories.
Wanzalara's Cottage consists of three interconnected tales: Wendie's Tears; The Witch of Darkwood Forrest; and Trouble in the Forest flow together into a heart-wrenching story of misery that culminates in joy. Wanzalara's Cottage illustrates God's goodness in the face of human cruelty, and also that wicked people can be redeemed. It is gratifying to the author that Part One, Wendie's Tears, has helped a number of people deal with their anger toward God, engendered by abuses suffered early in life. Part Two, The Witch of Darkwood Forest, illustrates the fact that God's power is greater than the power of the enemy of our souls. Part Three, Trouble in the Forest, reveals how one life can influence another and how God changes lives. Wanzalara's Cottage is an engaging read that gives pause to think about significant life issues.
Jeremy's Cottage is a collection of short stories, all fictional, in which ordinary people become ensnared in dilemmas, sometimes not of their own making. Each person asks for help and receives a message through a chance meeting, a dream, a fleeting thought, or even what at first appears to be a tragedy. A beloved pet might hold the solution at times. Each answer sets that person on a path out of the dilemma.
