Coming Soon – What Friends Are For
When the mask breaks, what lies beneath?
When you’re a young mother living in a small town miles away from friends and family, boredom and loneliness are part of the job description. So when Tracy receives an unexpected call from the beautiful and elegant Kate Hensley, she jumps at the chance to get out of the house and share the company of another woman. But Kate is everything Tracy isn’t, and she finds herself questioning Kate’s motives in extending the invitation. When a chance meeting turns their expedition sour, Tracy gets her answer, but it’s not one she’s expecting…
What Friends Are For is the fourth instalment in a series of surprising and darkly humorous short stories. If you like relatable characters, amusing dialogue, and action spiced with both comedy and tragedy, then you’ll love J.B. Reynolds’s Crossing The Divide short story series.

What I’m working on right now.
21 August 2017
It’s been a busy few weeks. My new short story, What Friends Are For, has come back from my editor and I’m working on the final edits.
I’ve also written an outline for another story, untitled as yet, about a middle-aged woman and her mission to stop her two sons from doing something stupid. It’s set in Brisbane and is a sequel of sorts to the events in Square Pegs.FIND OUT MORE >>
