A compendium of short stories for tea-time reading or whenever you have a spare moment. The stories come in all genres from historical, to environmental and even murder. From story number one where we meet Muriel on her Mission through to Maisie in the final story on her Journey Home. In between we find out what Dr MacKenzie does when he learns that his wife is unfaithful in The Bare Bones and follow Hugo on his murder trail in Murder Sch-murder and what do those children get up to in the mediaeval church in Whispers in the Dark.¿
Born in London 65 years ago, I am now a widow with two grown up sons, one of whom lives in Michigan where I also have a house on Lake Whitmore which I visit frequently to sit by the lake to write and paint. Always interested in writing stories, many of which appeared in our school magazine. I studied languages and taught them - encouraging my students to write interesting stories in whatever language. Once retired, I took up creative writing and studied under an excellent tutor, Sandie Traveller and later at Winchester University. I am a member of two writing groups where we encourage each other by reading work for critique. One of my short stories won a prize at our local library and I narrated another on the radio.
