“Human nature is not neat and predictable.  What makes us betray a loved one?
  Can isolation lead to irrational behaviour?
  Why do other people’s lives always look more appealing?

Ordinary people living ordinary lives, torn apart by regret, remorse, and deceit. We’re all stumbling through life together. This collection of stories shows you the Lost and Found among us.”

“Tales From The Cacao Tree” is an anthology of short stories and poems inspired by photographs of chocolate!

For this collection, our photographers were tasked with taking interesting photos of chocolate. The photographs for this book were provided by Martin David Porter (who has been a photographer for the series from book 1), Helle Gade (who’s provided photos and poems since book 2), and we were also joined by a new photographer, Kim Stapf.

My three stories for the collection are:

  1. A Taste of Love – a sad story about love lost
  2. Bittersweet – a tale about the lust for power, and revenge
  3. Choices – a story about the danger of getting what one asks for

Contributing writers for book 4 are:

Darcia Helle
Maria Savva
Julie Elizabeth Powell
Helle Gade
Ben Ditmars
Richard Weatherly

We’ll announce the publication date and pre-order information soon!

About Maria:

MariaMaria is a writer of short stories and novels. She has always been a storyteller, and an avid reader, and is now having a lot of fun in her adventure with the creative art of writing. She has published 5 novels, including a psychological thriller, a family saga, and a fantasy/paranormal/time travel book. She also has 5 collections of short stories, the latest “3” has been described as an “Innovative showcase” of her short stories. If you like stories that will take you deep inside the characters’ hearts and minds, and you like twists in the tale, you will probably want to try these stories.

As well as writing, Maria is a lawyer (not currently practising law). During her career, she worked in family law, criminal law, immigration, residential property law, and wills & probate, among other things. Many of her stories are inspired from her own experiences and the experiences of those she knows or has known. Chances are, if you get to know this author it won’t be long before you are changed forever into a fictional character and appear in one of her books. If she likes you, you may become a romantic hero/heroine; if she doesn’t… well, she writes a good thriller I hear.

Maria currently divides her time between working as an administrator in a university, and writing/reading/editing/blogging. She maintains the BestsellerBound Recommends blog helping to promote fellow indie authors. She’s also a music blogger for UK Arts Directory where she helps promote independent musicians.
