Thomas Charles

Volume One

Three poignant stories. Each confronts us with the collision of destiny and choice – and the unpredictable consequences.

In Café Beaubourg, still haunted by Alice’s desperate decision, all those years ago, Peter is unable to escape his loneliness and regret.

Lucky Strike is a vignette that tells how chance decided Samuel’s life and taught him never to take a moment for granted.

And Torre de Miramar asks a question most of us have pondered: is it possible to decide your own future? For Simon and Lia there is an unforeseen answer.



About the Author

Although Thomas Charles’ heritage is deeply British, he was educated in New Zealand and has worked in Australia most of his adult life. He currently resides in Western Australia..

A lawyer by choice (or circumstance?), Charles has travelled extensively in the Europe of his forbears. He is a persistent reader of English literature and began writing stories himself in what he hopes will be the final decade of his professional career.

He is fascinated by the hazardous path we all follow through life, buffeted unceasingly by the winds of fate, yet inexorably led on by our own will towards self-determination.
