Read full description of the books:
CLOSE CALL: Short and Bittersweet is not your usual collection of fictional short stories that can each be read in their own right. A blend of fact and fiction, it is an album of the author’s journey from the womb of the Scottish Highlands into the Big Wide World and into the deepest recesses of her own mind. All with the aid of a cast that includes the spectre of her mother’s mental illness, a superstitious granny that she cannot even remember, a prince, a vampire and two Hollywood actor lookalikes. Oh, and a couple of restless chickens. Life really is stranger than fiction …
Close Call is a place where things are not always as they seem, reality is only a matter of perception, and where history repeats itself in the most intriguing and sometimes touching ways. Where Fate and Serendipity rule the roost. And life imitates art.
Although ostensibly about danger, real or imagined, and the fine line between the worlds, Close Call is a greater adventure in the power of the human imagination. It explores not only how our life experiences shape our beliefs but how they are shaped by them. It lays claim to that dimension of human existence that we do not yet, nor need to, fully understand. Close Call is a thought-provoking roller-coaster journey that will make you laugh as well as cry.
There but for the grace of God. Everything for a reason. Never were truer words spoken …

Read information about the authorM K MACINNES is a self-employed writer from the Isle of Skye in the Scottish Highlands now living in the south of Edinburgh. Until now, she has enjoyed a very long and winding career path that has seen her also living in Glasgow, Cumbria and France. It has only taken, what, thirty years to be reunited with her lost love, writing.
“I USED to be embarrassed about having such a ‘messy’ life path, especially when it came to job interviews. But then when I started writing again, I realised it was a bonus. Or was it the other way around?
On the face of it, everything we experience is a random sequence of events, when in fact our life paths are highly organised, engineered if you like. I think this is common to everybody, but a person whose life is more straightforward will see it less clearly than someone who has a highly complex one. The sometimes eye-rolling twists and turns of my own life have given me an opportunity to see some unexpected patterns and jaw-dropping synchronicities. Luckily for me, these are the kind of insights that are rocket fuel to a writer.
The themes of synchronicity and perception v reality run through my first book, Close Call: Short and Bittersweet, and are the basis of everything I will most likely ever write.”
