‘Chaotic and Curious’ has a selection of short stories direct from the imagination of Lizzie Spence, except for three which actually happened to Lizzie but have been written up in the third person. To give the stories some explanation Lizzie would say that we all lead different lives – some lives are touched by events that can be explained, are carried along as if they were on a roller coaster, stressful yes but with a positive outcome.

Others lives are touched by events which cannot be explained, paranormal perhaps – this might include the loss of a loved one and certainly includes the spiritual – that strange feeling that we sometimes have that we are being looked after by our forebears. This defines the ‘Curious’ stories in my book. My stories are not frightening; I think they contain hope for all who live life. If my characters were to meet each other they would all find something to talk about, their lives having been touched by something which was worth reporting which is true of all of us. Their lives are demanding but interesting and often mystifying but they can seek explanations where there are some. ‘Chaotic and Curious’ is about people with demanding, interesting and sometimes mystifying lives where all my characters find their own way through life challenges. The story characters represent all age groups
