Off Stage at the Starlight Diner

smashwords cover

Two months today HarperCollins will publish my first novel Milkshakes and Heartbreaks at the Starlight Diner and to celebrate I’m releasing the second of three, free short stories. The stories are designed to introduce readers to The Starlight Diner and to some of the characters in the novel while offering new readers a sample of my writing style.

If you missed the first one, fear not. It’s still available for free here. Hundreds of people downloaded it and sought me out on Twitter and Facebook to tell me how much they enjoyed it. This, of course, means the world to me. More so than I can ever articulate.

Set in New York in 1977, the second story explores how waitress Mona Montgomery first came to work at the Starlight Diner and the dreams she left behind when she did. Like Bernie from the first story, Mona features in the full-length Starlight Diner novels.

Are you ready to meet her?

You can download a PDF copy here. Or you can access it on Smashwords, Wattpad, Kobo and Shakespir.

I really hope you enjoy what I’ve written.

For fun tweets about diner food, fifties music and New York City life, why not follow the Starlight Diner staff on their Twitter feed @MilkshakesNYC?

Much gratitude to Joanna Swainson, Dean Cummings, Jo Pugh and Ellie Wood for their insightful editorial guidance on this story.
