I’ve been one of Nicky Well’s biggest followers. There hasn’t been a week I haven’t responded to her blog, especially on Mondays when she offers a musical selection; and I respond with one which relates to the topic of the entry or the question she asks. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.

Nicky Wells: Love & Thrills

On this day in 1993 (a Monday, if memory serves), a historic event transpired at Dover Ferry port, at about 10 a.m. Slightly bleary-eyed after a 4 a.m. start, a long drive, and a two-hour journey on the SeaCat across a very ‘lumpy’ English Channel (the captain’s words, not mine), I emerged onto British soil for good. I was 20 years old. I brought with me: one blue hard-shell suitcase full of clothes; one hold-all full of books, CDs and assorted knick-knacks; one small boom box (gotta have music, right?); and one collapsible box full of home-making paraphernalia such as two plastic plates, three mugs, one knife, one spoon, one fork, one small pot, and a packet of clothes pegs.

My destination? Royal Holloway and Bedford New College (as it was then), University of London. My purpose: to acquire a degree in European Studies (French and Management Studies).

FIVE SENTENCE FICTION – Magnetic

1 Comment

A MAGNETIC PERSONALITY

This week Lillie [http://www.lilliemcferrin.com] has asked us to write a Five Sentence Fiction response to her prompt of MAGNETIC.  I couldn’t believe this has given me the opportunity to disclose part of the storyline of my second romance writing endeavor, a still untitled Contemporary romance.

After Jessica’s car accident, William Griffith, a volunteer firefighter, came to her aid by extricating her from her vehicle.  He placed her in a sitting position her against her car, making sure she was okay. After a few moments he saw Jessica trying to stand up and immediately went to her side to give his assistance, and as he held her against his chest, she felt a warm secure feeling which she never had experienced in a man’s arms before. Perhaps this is why she accepted his offer to drive her home in his SUV, and once there invited him inside.  After he advised her that the SUV’s battery had died and that he wouldn’t to get a boost until the next morning, Jessica offered Bill a spare room to spend the night, not knowing that this would be the relationship she’d always dreamt of having.

I would definitely love to get feedback on this.

FIVE SENTENCE FICTION – Wild

This week Lillie McFerrin have us “WILD” as the prompt with which we’re to write our FIVE SENTENCE FICTION.

This week I decided to write a poem instead of my usual endeavors

 WILD DREAMS

Oh if I could only become a bestselling author.

And to have a movie version of it would be even better.

These are only the mere dreams I’ve got.

But reality is these are things which are not.

Wild dreams is what keeps me going on.

 

 

 

Encore! Encore! Launch day for Sophie’s Encore!

Three books in less than 365 days… Wow! Yes, it’s a year to the day, if not the date, that the first book in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy, Sophie’s Turn, was released by my publisher, Sapphire Star Publishing. And today, it’s time to set free the final instalment of the romance between legendary rock star, Dan Hunter, and girl-next-door, Sophie.

Rock with me!

Five Sentence Flash Fiction – THUNDER

Leave a comment

I’m finally back after facing a massive computer clash, new cabinets from the kitchen being installed, and a bunch of several other little annoying things.

The prompt Lillie McFerrin has given us [ http://www.lilliemcferrin.com ] for this week is THUNDER and this is my Five Sentence Flash Fiction endeavor for it

A Clap of Thunder

A clap of thunder has just awoken me from my sleep as I’d dreamt of wonderful paradise. And as I adventured out of my salt-box home I saw the most foreboding sky I’d never seen with black, green and yellow blotches littered the sky, which up to a few short hours ago had been a luscious blue without barely a cloud to be seen; and which now looked like the entire world was about to end. Dead silence marked scene as I heard my heart beating faster and faster, louder and louder without any sight of any abatement in sight. I knew I had no one anywhere near me, and then a touch by someone’s hand on my shoulder caused me to involuntarily let out a shrieking scream. I awoke again to find this had all been the real dream.
