"A Brush wth Fantasy"

 

 

'A Brush with Fantasy' - short story and picture collection

 

'The November wind rattled the cottage windows and the dragon's egg rolled slowly from the embers of last night's fire. She grabbed the hem of her skirt and gently patted the egg back into the heat. Her task was a weary one but it was only a few more days until this clutch was due to hatch.'

 

So begins one of Tina Holley's stories. The tales are inspired by or linked to her paintings and Tina is never sure where the inspiration will take her. Sometimes fantastical, often humorous, her stories range through suspense, romance, the wryly observational, tales for children, the supernatural and just plain fun - well, that is, fun with dragons.

 

International award winning artist Tina Holley has turned her attention to her lifelong ambition of being a writer and produced this collection of short stories.

 

Accompanying each story is a full colour plate of the painting that started it off.

 

The book contains a frontsipiece, twelve stories with accompanying plates and a biography of the artist.
