Taking inspiration from his favourite short story writers – F. Scott Fitzgerald, Maupassant, HH Munro, W. Somerset Maugham and O. Henry – Jeffrey has written four collections of short stories over the years. In 1997, all of Jeffrey’s short stories written up to that time were released in one volume as Collected Short Stories.

He has just released a new set of 12 short stories, called Cat O’ Nine Tales, of which 9 of the 12 stories were conceived when he was in prison. The book is out now in hardback in the UK.
