Three’s a Crowd at the Starlight Diner: Free Short Story

three's a crowd cover

One month today, my first novel: Milkshakes and Heartbreaks at the Starlight Diner will be published by HarperCollins. To say I’m a little bit excited would be a bit like saying Michael Bay is a little bit fond of committing big explosions to celluloid.

To celebrate the fact that very, very soon people will be able to read a full-length Starlight Diner story, I’m releasing the third and final installment in the series of little prequels I’ve penned.

Set in New York in 1990, this third short story delves into the problematic love life of Starlight Diner regular Angela Harris.

You can download a PDF copy here.. Or you can access it on Smashwords, Kobo, Scribd, or on Wattpad. I really hope you enjoy reading it, I certainly had a great deal of fun writing it.

Thanks to everybody who read the first two short stories and took the time to tell me how much they loved them. I’ve been overwhelmed by the number of downloads these stories have had and by the deeply positive feedback I’ve had from them. It means so much to me.

If you’ve missed the first two short stories, fear not. They’re still available for free and you can access them here.

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, Pheobe Morgan, Helena Sheffield and Ellie Wood for their insightful feedback and editorial guidance on this story.
