Author – Janet Stock.
I am married with one teenage son and have always been a keen reader and writer since being young. I was born in Lancashire but have lived in Lincoln for over 30 years.
Several years ago I decided to take my writing seriously. I completed an OU course in creative writing and a Writers Bureau course. Initially I concentrated on short story writing, and when I turned fifty this year, I self-published my first book, Dark and Fluffy.
I love writing short stories, but my main goal is to have a novel published. Ten years ago, I started the first book of a trilogy of novels called The Little Servant (The Wait’s Son). I am still working on this, but now I have a serious intent to get this finished this year.
My favourite genre is medieval fiction, Bernard Cornwell is my favourite author. I also like to read Edward Rutherford, Stephen King, and Dean Coontz.

The Blurb –
Following on from Dark & Fluffy, this collection is a further nine short fiction pieces. The title Dark & Fluffy II, reflects the general styles of the stories/prose in the book. Some are a bit darker, and may be a bit uncomfortable to read, Death by Testing and The Broken Arrangement fall into this category. Others are happier, feel good pieces like The Disney Club. Whatever your preference, I’m sure you’ll find something that will grab your attention.
Today is my stop on the Dark and Fluffy Volume II blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.
My thoughts – This is a really interesting short book of short stories. The genres of the stories vary from dark through to light hearted hence the title. The themes vary from death and stalking to friendship and the Irish Famine.
I love short stories and I really enjoyed this book. I find short stories intriguing as they are just a snippet of a bigger picture and I love thinking about which way the story could go. Worlds of possibilities.
This is a great short read, it is only 81 pages.
