My latest short story: “This Life Business”

I have not written a short story for exactly a year – too many part-time appointments have kept me very busy in 2012.

But I want to keep my hand in, so I’ve used the festive break to craft  a new story – my 29th.

It’s called “The Life Business” and I’ve had the idea in my mind since a few months before my granddaughter was born two years ago.

Do please check it out here and feel free to post a comment.

    Love the short story. Very sweet and quite serious too.

    Really do think you should write a little grandpa book or even grandparent book and include this and then lots of 100 words – little glimpses of the delight.

    I think it would be very valuable because we can lose sight of the sweetness of it all.

    Love this short story of the thoughts of your granddaughter before her birth, such a great idea and hopefully the first of many more stories from you in 2013. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I have enjoyed your last story – “This life business”.

    It’s obviously for a very good reason that our childhood memories are very vague before we’re 3 or 4 years old!
