Welcome

Set in the remote places miles from the Central Belt, the Forgotten Scotland Mini-reads series is the work of Scottish Book Trust New Writer award winner, Kenneth Paul Stephen.

The first Mini-read, Sheep and Other Stories, is now available on Amazon Kindle - click here

The second Mini-read ‘My Life Through Colin and other stories’ is also available on Amazon Kindle, click here

Set in a Scotland coming to terms with the Independence Referendum, each micro-collection focuses on the voices at the fringes of modern Scotland; the sheep rustler, the list-making dreamer, the keeper of caged birds; the reluctant fisherman. The book equivalent of an EP, each Mini-read is perfect for a journey or an extended period in a lay-by waiting for roadside recovery.
