About the Book

"This is Life" is a collection of stories about life in the 21st century. The stories are tragic, evocative, funny, emotional. They demonstrate a wide range of human emotions and reactions. The stories are based, occasionally, on real people, real events. They are, nonetheless, fiction. There is a Yorkshire saying "There's nowt queerer than folk". It is so true.

It is her fascination with the way in which  people handle events in their lives which prompted Brenda to write this book. She hopes you will enjoy it.
