Paz Ellis has been writing since childhood. She began her journey as a writer with poetry and short stories. She grew up in a household of voracious readers.

Mothers

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day. It is the one day a year that the most phone calls are made. If you rarely speak to your mother because you are too busy or you just don’t have a very close relationship, tomorrow is the one day you will definitely call. If you can. I can’t. My mother died four years ago. It was the worst day of my life, even worse than the day my father died, eighteen years ago, today.
