My story, Moments Of Joy, is in the current issue of My Weekly. Isn’t the illustration lovely?
As you’ve probably worked out, the story involves someone blowing bubbles. It was inspired by a visit to York Minster. It was a sunny day and the streets were full of happy tourists enjoying the history and beauty of the city.
As I walked round I saw bubbles drifting down the road at about head height. They were very pretty, but such an odd contrast to all the stone buildings I looked around to make sure other people could see them too. They had – and several were laughing or taking photos.
That made me wonder what impact similar bubbles might have in a more ordinary location and on someone who wasn’t already in a good mood. I decided it was just possible they could create tiny moments of joy.
If you read the story, I hope you enjoy it. If you’d like a longer read you might enjoy my romantic novel Escape To The Country, which is set on a farm in the beautiful kent countryside. The ebook is currently reduced to 99p (99c). There’s a paperback version too, which can be bought online or borrowed from some libraries.
