3 by Maria Savva: a fantastic new collection of short stories

File created with CoreGraphics

I have just spent an enjoyable afternoon, reading and thinking about Maria Savva’s latest collection of short stories.

“3” contains three excellent stories: “Never to be Told”, “The Bride” and “What the Girl Heard”. The first story describes the first date between Amber and Tom, who have far more in common than either of them can imagine at the start of the date.

“The Bride” has a real paranormal aspect to it, which is something I really like about so much of this talented author’s work. Olivia is delighted that Rod has asked her to marry him, but he has secrets which disturb and alarm the bride to be.

The final story in the collection opens with a baby sitting evening that ends disastrously for all involved. It is only many years later that babysitter, Victoria, learns the full impact that her bedtime story had on her young charge, Minnie Baker.

Maria Savva’s short stories are a joy to read. They are beautifully written and constructed, drawing you into the story within a few sentences. More please, Maria!


Maria is a writer of short stories and novels. She has always been a storyteller, and an avid reader, and is now having a lot of fun in her adventure with the creative art of writing. She has published 5 novels, including a psychological thriller, a family saga, and a fantasy/paranormal/time travel book. She also has 5 collections of short stories, the latest “3” has been described as an “Innovative showcase” of her short stories. If you like stories that will take you deep inside the characters’ hearts and minds, and you like twists in the tale, you will probably want to try these stories.

As well as writing, Maria is a lawyer (not currently practising law). During her career, she worked in family law, criminal law, immigration, residential property law, and wills & probate, among other things. Many of her stories are inspired from her own experiences and the experiences of those she knows or has known. Chances are, if you get to know this author it won’t be long before you are changed forever into a fictional character and appear in one of her books. If she likes you, you may become a romantic hero/heroine; if she doesn’t… well, she writes a good thriller I hear.

Maria currently divides her time between working as an administrator in a university, and writing/reading/editing/blogging. She maintains the BestsellerBound Recommends blog helping to promote fellow indie authors. She’s also a music blogger for UK Arts Directory where she helps promote independent musicians.
