Books by Annmarie Miles
A Sense of the Sea and other stories
The much anticipated second collection from Annmarie Miles is finally ready to fall into the hands of eager readers.
In these new stories you'll find the same charm and humour but there are deeper, darker themes explored this time around.
There'll be plenty of smiles, some tears and some surprises.
The Long & The Short of it is a collection of stories put together with a range of readers in mind. From the humorous to the heartfelt and the genuinely touching, there is something for everyone.
Whether it's a man struggling with failing memory, a secret benefactor, school bullies or frantic parents - there are no Jack Bauer cliffhangers and no bodice-ripping love scenes; just normal people and everyday situations. As you read you will find yourself cheering for the underdog, empathising with the grief-stricken, rejoicing with the winners and laughing at the mischief-makers.
Ranging from 100 words to 3.5 thousand, The Long & The Short of it is a book of stories you will always have time for.
5* Amazon Reviews for 'The Long & The Short of it'
"The stories are warm and familiarly written with characters you feel you have met on the bus or in the office down the road. Whimsical with a gentle realism and a true balm to the harsh crudeness of our modern lives."
"A wonderful collection of treats for the spirit. It's one of those books, that will lure you back time and time again."

Annmarie Miles' stories are part of us all. They are the heroes of our lives who we suddenly recognise as we read (and sometimes reread) her tales.
Annmarie has a wonderful way with words... Poignant, funny and thought-provoking. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!
