51 fun-sized stories that are just right for today’s busy lifestyle.
Although the stories in Grey Seeming differ in terms of length; but there is cohesion to all the stories as they all touch on topics that are not clearly one thing or the other; or where the border between the two is fuzzy; or issues that are open to interpretation.
Some of the stories are fusion between narrative and poetry; some are behaved and some break a rule or two.
Each story presents a unique situation and aims to help you notice the grey areas we face on our daily dealings and also to help you know when to let a little grey in, and when to default to black and white.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Writing has always been a part of me. What inspired me to write this specific book is the recent emergence of flash fiction stories. I believe a flash fiction story has to be free from the confines of a well-behaved syntax; should be either funny or shocking; should leave room for the reader’s imagination; and should have a high repeat value. I have strived to achieve these in all the stories in this collection.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My stories and characters have been forming in my head subconsciously all the time and whenever one of the sorties and its characters are ready to an extent that fascinate me then I know it is time they come out on the paper.
