Mary Brooks reignites the literary world with the release of her latest short story collection aptly titled, “Fireworks” (published by Xlibris AU). This new compilation from Brooks brightens up readers’ lives like a load of fireworks at night.

This eclectic and timely collection treads on issues that are usually encountered by families and society such as child care and child rearing, Alzheimer’s disease, lies, enjoyment, family bonding, etc. These common everyday happenings reflect what people go through; providing readers with a platform to pick on stories they can relate to.

A mirror of everyday familial and societal circumstances, “Fireworks” reminds readers of the challenges and the rewards of living. Written in an easy-to-read manner, suffused with a variety of life lessons, this book will entertain and empower readers.

An excerpt from the book reads:

The three teenagers went to the city to watch the New Year fireworks, and although their mother was apprehensive, she had to trust that they would be safe together. She was fast asleep when the three miscreants crept into the house and fell into bed, fully clothed. The next morning, she found them still dressed and still asleep, so she let them sleep till midday. Marilyn sighed resignedly; it was such a trial being a single mother with three young adults who still acted like children at times.
