Monty’s Very Short Shorts (an anniversary)

January marks the one year anniversary of publishing Monty’s Very Short Shorts. My very first creative works. Join me for a little journey down memory lane in celebration.

Monty’s writing, while self-described as quirky, devoured me as I sat lost in his words and illustrations.

The author shows wit, creativity and rawness in his work.

Five-star Amazon Reader Review

A strange but entertaining book, this, one that provides ‘wake-up moments’ about our reactions to the pandemic – some humorous, others insightful and serious.

While some of the write-ups are designed for humor, others point at more serious and insightful subjects. I love this book and found myself laughing from time to time while reading Very Short Shorts. I strongly recommend this book.

Each of the pages is fully illustrated and I think these images and drawings are the icing on the cake of what it is a wonderful work. I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend it.

Four-Star Amazon Reader Review

Monty’s Short Shorts is an incredibly unique collection of short stories and drawings, that are so endearing in their quirkiness. Some of his writing really makes you think while others just make you smile. The drawings add to the overall feel of it, and while the author self-describes it as messy, there is a cohesiveness to the mess that makes it work. I really like this style and would love to see more from this author!
