Ten Ways the Animals Will Save Us: An anthology of flash fictions

I am thrilled to be part of this fantastic anthology with dozens of brilliant flash fiction writers. My story ‘The running resolution’ is about a 10km run and a moral dilemma. From start to finish (literally), Jacob is reminded of his life and the obstacles he has had to overcome, and he begins to question what’s ‘right’ and what’s ‘wrong’.


Ten Ways The Animals Will Save Us anthology contains 33 flash fictions from friends and fans of Retreat West, in a wonderfully wordy celebration of our ten year anniversary.

A surreal trip to the zoo rebuilds a relationship. The heartbreak that comes with growing up changes a young girl forever. A woman with an unusual appetite holds a dark secret.

Relationships old and new, diverging choices, things left behind and things yearned for are all explored in this vibrant collection of flash fiction.
