The Tiny Wife
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
A remarkable short novella, a modern fable that is weird, uplifting and romantic all at the same time.
A robber charges into a bank with a loaded gun, but instead of taking any money he steals an item of sentimental value from each person. Once he has made his escape, strange things start to happen to the victims.
A tattoo comes to life, a husband turns into a snowman, a baby starts to s**t money. And Stacey Hinterland discovers that she’s shrinking, a little every day, and there is seemingly nothing that she or her husband can do to reverse the process.
The Tiny Wife is a weird and wonderful modern fable. Small, but perfectly formed, it will charm, delight and unnerve in equal measure.

A truly wonderful little book that touches the soul, for reasons I'm still only figuring out.... Not what I was expecting and I'm so glad it wasn't ... Everyone should read it.
