Seven Ukrainian Girls – now available on Amazon!

Welcome to a brand new “Hotel Story”.

Seven Ukrainian Girls is the eighth story in the series, and follows on from the tales collected in my book Seven Hotel Stories.  

The Ultra Platinum Paradise Beach Resort offers fabulous facilities.  The exclusive Black Hole Coral Reef Dive Adventure, the Blue Planet Fish Restaurant and the Metaphysical Balance Repair Clinic and Spa should surely guarantee guest satisfaction.

So why is the Ultra Platinum losing money – and why is no-one drinking the famous Megastar all-day cocktails at the Beachfront Ultra Platinum Club?

Ms N, the world’s most brilliant, unpredictable and occasionally homicidal hotel manager, has been sent in to solve some problems.  Her beautiful but naive ally Tatiana has accompanied her.

Ms N believes that “in every challenge, there is an opportunity”.  But how will she tackle the hotel’s problems by calling in seven beautiful Ukrainian girls, who bring with them five large suitcases of high pork traditional country sausages? (more…)

The toughest, sexiest woman in fiction?

What kind of woman is tough, yet keeps her femininity and beauty?

Meet Ms N, the world’s most brilliant, unpredictable and occasionally homicidal hotel manager, and her beautiful but naive ally, Tatiana.  Ms N is one of the most formidable women in fiction

Ms N is so modest that she does not want anyone to know her real name.  But no-one handles men more effectively and more conclusively than she does, in the Seven Hotel Stories in which she stars.

You can buy a paperback or e-book version of Seven Hotel Stories at Amazon.comAmazon.co.uk, and other reputable Amazon outlets.  You won’t regret it.

If you don’t want to pay for a story, contact me via the form below and I’ll send you a Word copy of one of the stories.  We try to please!

P.S. The Seven Hotel Stories are not intended for children.  “The White Blouse”, in particular, contains some very evil men indeed, who get what they deserve.

The Hotel Stories – 7 reasons you should read them

I am standing in the lobby of a breathtaking luxury hotel.

My friends, all top hotel professionals, crowd round me.

‘We’ve heard about your Hotel Stories,’ says one.  ‘They sound fabulous – a little bit spicy, a little bit mysterious, loads of strong women.  Are they based on real life?’

‘Absolutely not,’ I say to the group of hotel managers and luxury travel experts.  ‘The stories spring fully-formed from my imagination.  But enough about me. Has anything weird or stimulating happened in any of your properties recently?’

‘Weird or stimulating barely suffices to describe what happened at my hotel in London last week,’ says the general manager of a legendary five-star property.  ‘Let me tell you about it…’

So what is in the Hotel Stories; and why should you read them?

All seven Hotel Stories star the world’s most brilliant hotel manager, Ms N (she is too modest to wish to be named here).  She has strict methods of dealing with badly-behaved hotel guests.  The stories are narrated by Ms N’s beautiful but naive colleague, Tatiana.

The first reason you should read the Hotel Stories is Britches, which records how Ms N and Tatiana first met.  They form a team, as Tatiana helps Ms N sorts out the hotel owner from hell using the President of China; a whisky-tasting; and something Tatiana finds under a handsome Scotsman’s kilt.

The “Hotel Stories” – a treasure trove of women’s comedy fiction

Have you ever stayed in a five-star hotel, or gazed at the lobby and dreamed of spending the night in pampered luxury?  

Have you ever wondered, in establishments designed to make visitors feel coddled, cosseted and indulged, how far hotel staff will go to please their most demanding customers?

Or how they deal with guests whose demands are unreasonable, excessive or, perhaps, illegal?

The Seven Hotel Stories, set in luxury hotels, are blackly comic case studies of how the world’s most brilliant hotel manager, Ms N, and her beautiful but naive ally Tatiana sort out some of the nastiest customers – and colleagues – you can imagine.

One reviewer said the Hotel Stories were “like Roald Dahl short stories, crossed with W Somerset Maugham“.  Another said “Tatiana is Watson to Ms N’s Sherlock Holmes – except more deadly“.

The Hotel Stories are written with an insider’s knowledge of how hotels work and the extraordinary things which happen within.  

You won’t find Ms N’s methods taught in any hotel school.  But I have it on good authority that at at least one hotel school, they are required reading.

To get a taste of the Hotel Stories, you can read an excerpt from each one at the links below.  Click!

The first story, “Britches” shows how Ms N and Tatiana first met; and sorted out Mr Minas, the hotel owner from hell, using a Combined Burns Night and St Patrick’s Day Ball (I’ve been to one); the President of China; and a handsome Scotsman’s kilt.

The second story, with a startling twist, is called The Two Rooms, and features an obnoxious hotel guest who will not leave; (more…)
