Stephen Shieber

I am a teacher and writer living in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. My first collection of short stories, 'Being Normal' was published by Tonto Books in 2008. Since then I have been tinkering with novels and continuing to work with the short story form. My writing has appeared in various anthologies, the latest being 'Root' (Iron Press, 2013).

Moving into your first flat with a lover is a stressful time, but when precious objects become damaged, there'll be tears before bedtime. Thank goodness for the Bronte family band!
