This collection includes fiction, fantasy, and horror stories, all underpinned by humour. So, whilst eavesdropping on the hearts and minds of the protagonists within, feel free to chuckle as you cheer the goodies and boo the baddies. Or vice-versa…


None of the characters is drop-dead gorgeous, has perfect teeth, or is living the dream with their one true love. No. These characters are muddling through life like the rest of us which means some stories may seem familiar – perhaps a little too close to the bone. Some are irreverent and others, downright disturbing. Nevertheless, whatever your reaction, whatever you feel, the stories tell things the way they were and without judgement. Fair enough?

Carmel Liddell’s first children’s book, The Beachmaster, was published in 2006. Her stories about flawed characters and pets behaving badly are told with great affection, humour and compassion. Reggie Carstairs: Behind Closed Eyes is her first adult fiction novel. Carmel lives with her husband in Sydney, Australia.

    What an excellent book. These short stories are so relatable and I love the way she portrays her animals. She is also able to bring out the humanity of her characters with all their flaws and humor. A great read.
