Best of Café Lit 5

I was delighted to discover that three of my stories have been chosen to go in the latest anthology from the Creative Café Project. 

The book is available in paperback and Kindle version.

The Amazon link is HERE 

In the meantime, here are some photos loosely relevant to the three stories for your entertainment…

Hibiscus, Fiji

Great White Shark, South Africa

Great White Shark, South Africa

Shark Cage Diving, South Africa

Entertainment, Fijian Style

Do let me know if these photos have whetted your appetite/curiosity.

I'm off in December to explore a European city that has been on my wishlist since I was a teenager. Can you guess where I'm going? 
All will be revealed in my next post. 
See you in three weeks!

Earlier this year we decided to get a puppy. She has been the perfect excuse to go for daily walks down to my local beach.

Every day is different. The light on the water changes all the time. Sometimes the bay looks dramatic and foreboding, sometimes soft and gentle. Whatever the season, it is always beautiful.

The swans are returning to spend the winter here and watching them on my dog walking escapades is a joy. 

Now, I would never describe myself as a poet, but I do occasionally dabble with poetry and enter the odd poem in a monthly online competition. 

How could I not feel inspired by these glorious birds?

Aren't they poetic?

My poem is not strictly a haiku, even though it follows the syllable 'rule'.


Day dawns pink, and clear
across the bay swans breakfast
on sedges and weeds
