Dreena’s third collection of short stories is available now from Amazon.

A young woman struggles to read; an elderly man stares at the sky and contemplates loss; a niece plots murder on the bus. Often tender, sometimes uplifting, always relatable – these tales explore the emotions and challenges that ordinary people strive to overcome.

Bird Wing contains stories shortlisted and long-listed in competitions including Flash 500 and Fish Publications.
