Shade of the Morning Sun …

An ever-growing series of short stories that …

Combine to one life-long road-novel about …

Carrie Sawyer – recovering artist, restless traveller, mum-in-training

Each story is intended to be self-contained – so you can start anywhere.

My stories are usually inspired by a piece of pop or rock music, as are all of the stories taken together:

A main theme in Carrie’s life is very much encapsulated in the story about the classic ’80s synth-pop song, “True Faith” from New Order – the lyrics of which include the line:  “I’ve seen the light in the shade of the morning sun”.

Future stories will explore the theme of just what ‘the light’ can be, for real, and metaphorically – a path to something good or … just the opposite.
