Hopeless Romantic

12007128_650466581757159_662961672_nI have a short story in the current (Spring) edition of the Australian magazine That’s Life! Fast Fiction. Hopeless Romantic was partly inspired by my lovely husband.

Just like Sydney does with Levia in the story, Gary often has trouble getting my attention when I’m reading (or writing). Like Sydney he sometimes resorts to drastic measures – though thankfully rather different ones!

Maybe it’s wrong to laugh at my own jokes, but I giggled as I typed out Sydney’s attempts to make his wife swoon. Oddly enough, Gary looks concerned when I laugh and type simultaneously. Perhaps I should stop telling him he’s my inspiration?
