Me-Time Tales: tea breaks for mature women and curious men

By Rosalind Minett

Short stories, Comedy & satire, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


"Quirky and intriguing" - Katie Fforde. Enjoyed Sue Townsend, Fay Weldon? Then look forward to these satirical tales. This is an expanded edition with additional stories. Women of all ages feature together with their obsessions. There’s tattooed Jess in her prime at 16, dismal Daryl, neurotic Mrs W., multi-mother Pru, Marian fighting middle-age, a loving mattress and a prosthesis, not to mention the lady who cannot admit to her name or her age. The stories may begin cosily but soon something provokes or challenges expectations while the end often surprises. Readers comment that the book is "a great read for all ages and both sexes."



Rosalind Minett (writing name) trained as a dancer, became more interested in acting, gained a place at RADA, but then academic life took over. She studied in Birmingham, Sussex and Exeter universities before enjoying a career as a chartered psychologist. Predictably, the inner life of her characters determines their fate in her stories, whether humorous, historical or criminal. She relishes quirkiness, and creating complex characters whether these are in their prime, older or very very young.
