Short Story Collection is the culmination of a passion for story telling in the written form. Middleton has penned four stories; Direct Action, an unlikely friendship between a down-and-out and farmer results in an unlikely resolution for the latter's hardships; Eugene's First Vacation and The Journey Home, two stories bridged by the same protagonist, a modest man from the American Deep South and his first online dating experience; and Stephen Harper's Gift, a tale of a bank robbery and the soluble paradigm of morals; each covering themes of justice, redemption and endurance, each story revealing everyday heroes within seemingly ordinary men, offering beacons of hope in dark times.
Short Story Collection is equal parts wit and humour, Middleton's style and diction adaptable to the environment he transports the pen to and a masterclass in the art of suspense; in this instance short is shorthand for powerful.

Born in London, Michael is a businessman and financial adviser. Married, he lives together with his wife in the lovely Berkshire countryside where he likes to write. When not either working or writing Mike as his wife calls him is usually found helping out with her horse business.

  • wonderful stories

    Reading this book was amazing because all the stories were written in a funny and still heartwarming way. Even though I wouldn't say I am a fan of action stories, this one was totally worth reading and definitely loveable for people who usually prefer actionless stories. The protagonists are understandable and lovely characters into whom you get very good insight.
    At some points the dialogues couldn't quite keep up with the characters' and storylines' levels.
    All in all I really enjoyed reading this book because of its wonderful stories and lovely characters.

    Wow! What a great book. I have just stayed up all night to finish reading it and boy was I impressed. I loved all the short stories, the author managed to keep me engaged throughout the book.

    I found myself really getting into and knowing the characters, all of which had such different personalities and interesting stories. This allowed me to truly imagine the serinaros. ( I won’t go into too much detail as I wouldn’t want to spoil it for others).

    Great work keep it up and I can’t wait to see what other books are yet to come.
