In each of the twelve stories in Michael Daly’s collection, he attempts to cunningly expose our human frailties and foibles with hopefully an expert mixture of humour and sadness at many of life’s challenges.

Retirement plans that don’t quite work out, a husband whose wife thought she really knew him well, a pet lover who has to ask an arch-enemy to help her bury her cat, people coping with illness and the lonely lady in London whose life is completely changed by telephoning a random phone number on a used banknote!

These short stories may appear perfectly calm on the surface, but readers will quickly find themselves submerged in the murky underwater of real life.

Michael Daly was born in Rathcormac, Ireland in the 1950s and came to Britain to join the RAF at the age of seventeen.


After a successful career in the RAF Regiment, he left as a Squadron Leader and pursued a second career as a university bursar in Durham for Teikyo University of Japan, where he works to this day.


He has written fiction as a hobby for many years, but this is his first published work.


In 1985, he was awarded an MBE for military service and in 2016 the Freedom of the City of London.


He lives alone in Durham city.
