A winter story

It’s been a very long while (or so it seems) since I had regular time to devote to my creative writing.  However, such is the time lag in publishing that I recently had a story appear in this magazine:

Causeway / Cabhsair: A Magazine of Irish and Scottish Writing, November 2011.

My contribution is a winter story of a grieving man who dislikes children.  If you’d like to read it, click here.



  1. Beautiful, you nearly had me in tears.

  2. i couldn’t stop reading til i got to the end. you are a natural story-teller and a talented writer.

  3. I felt like I was right there, feeling the cold, smashing the ice, being annoyed by the child, crying with grief. You are an amazing writer! Congratulations on getting this wonderful story published. XX

  4. Congratulations indeed! 🙂

  5. Hello Christine….I have printed out your story to read this week end.
    I did check with my computer guru about allowing other sources to leave me a message. If I understood him correctly, it would leave me wide open for junk mail. You have my e-mail address….feel free to use it anytime you would like. I love hearing from you.

  6. Dear everyone,

    Thank you so much for your kind comments. I’m glad you enjoyed the story.

    Meggie, this whole commenting thing with Blogger puzzles me – do they not realise they have blocked a large part of the blogging community from participating? Oh well! Thank you.

  7. What a honor!
