Hurrah! Huzzah! And Hip Hip Hooray! After many years in journalism, PR and education, I finally found my passion in short-story writing. I've had a number of shorts published in literary magazines and recently Lampglow Books published one of my faves, The Greatest Blessings, as a children's chapter book, replete with 22 sumptuous illustrations. That's a victory in itself. But what would be better is if the tale of the fabulous Lords Fame, Fortune and Power and the forsaken runaway named Boy they command to decide which one of their namesake blessings is the greatest sells a few copies!
