There is nothing like a quick escape from reality; ten to twenty minutes, preferably shared with a hot cup of tea and a slab of chocolatey goodness and a good read.  I love short stories, the brief snippets of someone’s life that we get a snap shot of or a moment in time in a big adventure.

I also love to write short stories; I’m a people watcher and love to try and figure out people’s back stories, why they are somewhere on a given day, why they were cross or why they were happy?  There are endless possible answers and that’s the beauty of it.

In the categories below over the coming months you’ll find what I hope are little nuggets of gold to accompany those stolen moments away from the real world where you take time out just to be.  Hope you enjoy them as much as I love writing them.
