In Stained Glass Lives, Louise Worthington's writing fuses poetry and prose, beauty and violence.
Sometimes, tender, sometimes harsh, she explores loss, female power and the power of distorted thought, as well as creating stark portraits of family, violence and revenge. The characters are flawed and visceral, from ghosts, daughters, mothers, wives, to taxi drivers, teachers, a frail widow and a mercenary shop assistant.
Louise Worthington lives in Shropshire with her family. Her short fiction has been published in numerous literary magazines, and she is
a reader for Flash Fiction Online. Her debut novel is called Distorted Days. Stained Glass Lives is a debut collection of flash fiction and short stories. Louise's second novel, a psychological thriller called Rachel's Garden, will be published by Bloodhound Books in February 2021.
