Who is Vonnie Giles? Following Vonnie’s successful contributions to short story anthology ‘Picked and Mixed’, Vonnie Giles was invited by U P Publications to publish a solo book of her unique and very quirky short stories. Acid Rain was the result. Without doubt, as the blurb says “Acid Rain delves into her eclectic collection of dark and esoteric tales and promises to entertain and surprise. Meet some of the darkest characters ever to send shivers into your dreams.” Vonnie was born in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. A graduate of Cardiff University, she is an opera fan and a lover of Baroque music and, after a rewarding career teaching in the UK, has been a resident of Spain for over twenty-five years.
