Reseña del editor
Will writing erotica save a grandmother from financial ruin? Where is Emma’s baby and why hasn’t he been returned to her? And will a boy be able to stop his little sister from being made into a gourmet girl burger? Following Rosen’s acclaimed Seesaw collection, Volume II continues alternating between outrageous comedy and more sinister, psychological tales. At the core are two very different novellas – My Granny Writes Erotica and The Ice Marathon – alongside nine brand new short stories. The preface will continue Rosen’s own story, inviting you to share in her rocky but exciting journey from long-term incapacity to professional author.

A must read!
The format follows a similar pattern to the first collection, there is a vareity of stories that predominantly feature relationships and mental health issues. On the face of it that might sound mundane, but the author's talent is to bring clarity and even some humour to these situations. They also do a great job of providing understanding of some of the mindset that people suffer, a good example of this was the text message story from a woman with OCD.
Two stories in particular stood out for me. The first was 'My Granny Writes Erotica', I'd read this as a standalone previously and it was just as funny reading through it again. This was comedy gold. The other was the opening story 'A Stormy Afternoon in Falmouth Harbour' which is a short drame that had my heart in my mouth for the duration.
The author's writing has developed since the first collection and this is readily apparent when reading, there is a greater level of polish here, but not so much that it loses the immediacy of the story. Overall this is an excellent collection of stories, well worth reading.
I have already read and reviewed the two novellas - The Ice Marathon and My Granny Writes Erotica - which each represent the psychological drama and bawdy comedy that Rosen writes so well. But it's the other stories exclusive to Seesaw II which demonstrate her versatility in capturing a full spectrum of emotions.
A Stormy Afternoon in Falmouth Harbour is enough to make a hydrophobe of anyone. As someone with a lifelong fear of drowning, I read this in a state of anxiety, so well-drawn and gripping was the story.
The Other Father is a double-barrelled story, telling a tale of estranged fathers from two very different angles: one for adults, that touches of very current modern fears, and one for children, which includes the Smelly Trolls that have proven so popular with kids of all ages (and never-grown-ups!).
The five short episodes from one character's life that start with All Grown Up are beautifully crafted jewels, easily good enough be published all together as one excellent story. Each one captures a different time of life perfectly, with many laugh-out-loud observations that everyone will find sympathy with.
Finally, What Crazy Looks Like is heartfelt, humbling, courageous genius. After reading this, you'll think twice about laughing at 'mad' people ever again.
If you're someone who has preconceived notions that indie authors are anything less than professional or high quality, this excellent book will blow them out of the water. Rosen Trevithick shows us all how it's done.
