Funny Incidents or, why no good deed goes unpunished! by Kay Morrison is the author's second book. In it, she draws together a collection of stories and anecdotes that serve to demonstrate just how much we miss when we fail to stop and take notice. Life is what happens when we are busy making other plans.

Of her first book, Patient Number 360993 (published by Original Writing, 2010), she says that it deals with

… a pretty sad story about my son, Darren's struggle to survive in a Dublin hospital after a dreadful mistake. So I needed to move on and write something funny. I decided to compile a few true stories of my own first. Then, I invited family and friends to send me their funny incidents. This took all of about five years and when we were all confined to our houses with the pandemic, I finally got it all written down and sent out for a publisher.

With stories that vary between the fun, the frivolous, the occasionally cringe-inducing, it speaks to the heart and soul of the human condition, in all of our interactions and our comings and our goings.

"What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare?" as poet, W.H. Davies (1871-1940) acutely questioned and observed.

Kay Morrison is married mother of six children, all grown up, who lives in Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin. She hopes that anyone who reads her book will get a laugh out of it. She certainly has form in this regard: Kay is also a member of a comedy-acting group called Raging Hormones, who write their own sketches that they have performed in and around Loughlinstown and Dún Laoghaire over the years.

Funny Incidents or, why no good deed goes unpunished! by Kay Morrison is published under the imprint of The Manuscript Publisher and available to buy online, in print and e-book editions.
