Waves

The sea is powerful. For some it’s a source of inspiration and relaxation. For others, it’s dark and threatening. Thus it provides a wonderful backdrop for many stories.

Those which spring to mind include:
Albatross by David Stroud
The Goddess in Ravelled by Sue Hampton
Fancy That by Josie Arden in This and That vol 1
Stephen Baker makes waves in his monologue collection Against the Tide
And don’t miss John Samson‘s novel A Donkey Called Oddsock where a young boy goes in search of the sea.
Philip Philmar has a beautiful mermaid surrounded by waves on the cover of Warm and Wet, one of the stories in his short story collection of the same title.
The sea features too in Leslie Tate’s Love’s Register and in Margaret Moore’s holiday reminiscences From Sri-Lanka with Love.

Finally, Dave Robson shares how to be a popular crew member when sailing on the waves.

About Stephen Baker

Stephen hails from Kingston upon Hull and is an alumni of the University of Hull. He served on Hull City Council as an elected member (councillor) for 12 years and is now an Honorary Alderman of the city. Educated in the State School system, he left school in 1975 with no real direction career wise. A love of writing drew him to a BA degree course at the University of Hull, studying as a mature student part-time for six years. He then studied full-time for a Master’s degree in Historical Research. A creative writing course soon followed and he felt a real desire to write. This desire resulted in the publication of his first collection of monologues Against the Tide, a single monologue in the TSL Relationships compilation, and more.
