Read full description of the books:
3 short stories about love, desire and longing in this age of technology and isolation.
Former lovers meet in a cafe where they are confronted by a web of memories and conflicting emotions. While one of them is living the care-free life of a bachelor, the other, now settled down with a new man, is plagued by regrets and uncertainty. Is the taste of bittersweet nostalgia enough to destroy the new relationship?
A lonely telemarketer makes an unexpected connection over a phone line. Can two strangers, brought together by coincidence, really forge a meaningful relationship based on mutual despair?
A ramshackle room is illuminated only by the light from a computer screen, while a figure absorbs Internet gossip like a parasite - but who does the unoccupied space belong to? A story about our relationship with the media and its all-encompassing grip on our lives.

Read information about the authorMy name is Alex Norris and I am a writer from the UK.
My passion for writing stretches longer than my memory. I vaguely recall sitting in my living room as a child of around four years old, writing a story about a petulant kid who would answer all of his parents' demands with "if I have to". It has yet to win the Nobel Prize, but at least it amused my family.
As I grew older, my subject matter ranged from talking bears with a thirst for adventure to various ghost stories, fuelled by my childhood love of 'Goosebumps' books and my own overactive imagination. I have always been an avid reader, and my own stories have been inspired by everything from the classics to contemporary cult fiction.
In 2010, I enrolled at Cambridge University to read Spanish and Russian. It was after my second year there that I began work on my début novel, Angel, loosely based on some of my own experiences. Angel was released in 2013 and just over a year later, I released my second full length novel, One Week Of Summer.
Since graduating from university, I have worked as a proofreader and editor and I currently work in 'social media', whatever that means.
I am a keen follower of pop culture and this also plays a big part in my writing. As a teenager, I found pop music was able to express my own feelings with much more clarity than I could ever hope for. The likes of Morrissey, Amy Winehouse, PJ Harvey, Pete Doherty and Björk have all had a huge impact on me and my writing.
