About the Book:

Cocktales and Nibbles is a collection of twelve stories, ranging from the shortest such as ‘Lite in the Sky’, which was my first story written in 1973, to the lengthy ‘A Universal Threat’, written in 2017.

The title of this book, Cocktales and Nibbles, is meant to signify the short stories as ‘Nibbles’, while the longer stories are representative of the ‘Cocktales’. Please forgive my change to the spelling of ‘Cocktails’ – this is how my mind works!

These stories were written over a period of forty-four years, which includes the time to write and publish my six full-length novels and autobiographical works.

I do hope that you enjoy these figments of my imagination.
