Children have the enviable ability to believe; believe in good, bad, myths and monsters. With this imagination they are able to articulate how amazing the world is using so few words yet convey the expanse and beauty of all that’s in it. The inquisitive mind of my youngest daughter and the comedy of my teenager inspired me to write these short witty stories. All my short stories were created on the long walk for my daughter but short walk for me to primary school through fields with cobwebs, in front of large wooden gates that hid behind them tall walls hiding secrets behind green bushy hedges. These are the stores we talked about creating my books I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed telling them to my Leia-fay and sharing them with my Ellie.
