Award-winning Didim author, Maximilian Sam, has published his new book, “Stories From A Stray”. It comprises 21 short stories from the original “stray”, incorporating a range of genres.
In the book you’ll meet characters ranging from a chef to a spy, from a rugby player to a man called Dave. You’ll win and lose the lottery, survive a global lockdown, sink a boat, and say an emotional farewell to an old friend.
The book is aimed at an older audience than Max’s previous award-winning children’s books, “It’s A Stray Dog’s Life” and “It’s A Stray Dog’s Life 2”.
“The inspiration for my stories can come from a plethora of sources,” said Maximilian Sam. “Watching the world go by, and overhearing snippets of conversations, are still my greatest way of starting writing a story. It requires a strong sense of humour. You should see what people get up to when they think no-one’s looking.”
“I can confirm I’ve never been a spy, a smuggler, or a professional sports person,” continued Maximilian Sam. “Then again, maybe I have. You’ll have to decide for yourself. It’ll be interesting to see the conclusions people come to.”
“Stories From A Stray” is available in hardback, paperback, and ebook from Amazon.
Maximilian Sam is also the creator of the “Stray Army” brand, with a range of merchandise, from t-shirts to posters, available from his website www.maximiliansam.com.
He is now living in his 10th country having spanned the globe from the UK to Indonesia, and many stops in between, during a long career in PR. He now spends his time being looked after by a small army of stray dogs on Sagtur beach, writing more books, and conjuring up articles on Watford Football Club.
