Life Is Not A Bowl Of Cherries~1


I hated the winter and December in particular. All those festive revelries left me cold. Christmas was for happy families and I wasn’t in one...

Life Is Not A Bowl Of Cherries

A Story At Christmas

By Susan Brown

Trying not to be contentious here

But some authors are putting up several stories/episodes at once. This is a bit unfair as the front page is somewhat taken over with these stories and gives other authors less time on the front page and listing on the shortcuts.

Once a story goes off the front page, read counts go down considerably, so the longer a story is visible, the better chance an author gets for her work to be read.

Please think of others when posting several things at once.

Sisters Forever~7

I was in hospital for a total of three days whilst the medical ‘experts’ tried to work out what was wrong with me, if anything. On the second night at approximately 2.30 at the morning, I awoke suddenly....

The Wedding

Eagle eyed readers might note that I have withdrawn the story.

I think that I might have painted myself into a corner on that story and anyway some clever people who were kind enough to comment, stole my thunder and gave away the twist. Also, through another one of you clever so and so's, I realised that what I was trying to get my characters to do, wasn't legal and wouldn't stand up to close inspection.

Here was I thinking that I was a clever writer, but my readers are much more intelligent than me!

Get A Life!~Chapter 15

I could have cried, I should have cried, but I wasn’t in the crying mood. I was in the red-hot temper mood. I didn’t lose it all that often, but my blood was the blood of the Scots and we don’t take prisoners…

Miss Templeton then handed me a letter.

‘I’ll leave you alone to read it and then I’ll come back in about ten minutes Ma’am.’

‘Thanks,’ I said distractedly, fingering the letter that was addressed to David McKerrell in spidery handwriting...

Duality~Final Chapter

Angel

  Thinking that I would not get very far before the Honourable Lord Phillip was either found or had recovered his senses, I wasted little time in walking as fast as my skirts would allow…

I would like to thank Miss Jane Austen for the inspiration for this novella, which is based on a time prior to that which is described in Pride And Prejudice and involves a few of the characters in that great work.

Get A Life!~Chapter 12

After putting the scarf on over my hair, I felt a bit like Audrey Hepburn in that film, Roman Holiday and I just wished that I had her looks.

  By the time we reached home, it was obvious to me that my sister was very unwell and was in a high fever.

Sisters Forever~1


It should be a happy day. That was what birthdays were about. I had just turned thirteen. I was now officially a teenager and it made me feel a lot older.

Yes, I should be looking forward to today, but I wasn’t. ...

The Park Bench


So we sat there holding hands and eating our burgers with our free ones and it was nice. All the time though I was worried that it wouldn’t last though. You see, officially I’m a boy...

Angel

  Then there were the times when I felt angry and frustrated at the least little thing. Was it normal for a boy, for regretfully I was one under my finery, to have such strange feelings?

  ‘Well Georgiana Digby, you must forgive me for startling you. I was not expected back until much later today. I will, I have no doubt, see you again.’

Get A Life!~Chapter 9

I struggled with the seat belt while we erm, belted along at what seemed to be warp speed ten.

‘Well Chloe, we meet again.’

‘Yes,’ I said as my clunk finally clicked.

Get A Life!~Chapter 5

Ma McTavish was standing at the door of her delightful (not) B&B. She didn’t look very happy.

She was holding a heavy wooden rolling pin and it looked like she meant business...
