Over on Christmas with the Crooked Cats Facebook page you’ll find an amusing, touching short story by one of the authors of Crooked Cat Publishing – Sue Barnard. The story's entitled 'I'm with you in spirit.'
  Damson gin

Sue’s books are The Ghostly Father and Nice Girls Don’t.

The Ghostly Father has picked up an enviable collection of good reviews on Amazon UK (33). Blurb reads: Romeo & Juliet - was this what really happened? When Juliet Roberts is asked to make sense of an ancient Italian manuscript, she little suspects that she will find herself propelled into the midst of one of the greatest love stories of all time. But this is only the beginning. As more hidden secrets come to light, Juliet discovers that the tragic tale of her famous namesake might have had a very different outcome... A favourite classic story with a major new twist.
 
Nice Girls Don’t was released in June and has already received 9 good reviews. Blurb reads: Who knows what secrets lie hidden in your family's past? Southern England, 1982. At 25, single, and under threat of redundancy from her job in a local library, Emily feels as though her life is going nowhere - until the day when Carl comes into the library asking for books about tracing family history. Carl is baffled by a mystery about his late grandfather: why is the name by which Carl had always known him different from the name on his old passport? Fascinated as much by Carl himself as by the puzzle he wants to solve, Emily tries to help him find the answers. As their relationship develops, their quest for the truth takes them along a complicated paper-trail which leads, eventually, to the battlefields of the Great War. In the meantime, Emily discovers that her own family also has its fair share of secrets and lies. And old sins can still cast long shadows... Can Emily finally lay the ghosts of the past to rest and look forward to a brighter future?
