Wishing On A Star: Merry Christmas Everybody is published 16th November 2014

There are tensions in the studio when Twister record their new album.

The band members are at each other’s throats and someone is messing up their recordings.

The band blames their producer, but it soon becomes clear that someone unexpected

is trying to get a message of festive goodwill through to them….

Feedback is always welcome; whatever it is.

Many thanks.





    • Nicky thanks so much, appreciated. You might enjoy it because it is about a rock band….in the studio. Apologies for the swearing though. Do please comment on amazon so the publishers can see what people think…you know how it works! Hope all well with you too 🙂


          • Jane, I really enjoyed this story. LOVED it! It was right up my street, as you can imagine. Well done! I haven’t finished the rest of the anthology yet but hope to do so soon. Keep on writing, my friend, I can’t wait to read more… especially if there’s rock stars in it. Thank you!! XXX

            • Nicky, so glad you enjoyed it, swearing and all. Thanks for commenting here, appreciated. If you are of a mind and feel like doing me a favour, perhaps you might do the same on amazon for me – every little helps. Don’t feel obliged though. I have left a comment re Fairy Tale in New York, which I really enjoyed and read in one sitting! Reminded me of so many times there with various bands. Well done you too. We are having a ‘love in’ here lol 🙂


    • Many thanks Margot. Appreciate your kind words. Just hoping the publishers enjoy my full length books as much as they do my short stories and I’ll get one published soon. Working hard. 🙂


Please leave a reply and comment - your input is really appreciated. Thanks, Jane
