Writing short stories is a truly underrated talent but one that Alex has admired for a very long time. On today’s show we have a fine example of an author who excels in the art of of short story writing.

Author, Stephen Anthony Brotherton joins us on The Biscuit to talk about his new book ‘Watching The Wheels’ which is a collection of short stories that will grip you from the first page.

We need to discuss the process of writing short stories that can grip the reader from the offset and build a universe in a short space of time. What research goes into building up a character, a scene, a plot and narrative? Where in life does inspiration come from? How did Stephen choose which stories make it into the book and a cliché one, are the characters based on real-life people?

It is a great thing to be able to showcase great, local talent in the world of literature and it was a real treat sitting down with Stephen and his partner Tracey. If you’d like to support a local, Shropshire author and pick up a great read please look for ‘Watching the Wheel’ in all good local bookstores or visit Amazon now and pick up your copy:
