The Fiction Cafe Book Club

The Fiction Cafe – Book Club In just a year a lot has happened. I may not have achieved the target blog followers I aimed for. I may not have been as active as I wanted to be on my blog. What I have achieved has been amazing! In Jan, I met a lovely lady by chance in a book group on Facebook. We went on to start our own after rude admins didn’t agree with a simple suggestion. In just 8 months we have a group with just under 4’000 members!… Read More

The Fiction Cafe Book Club

I told her that I wanted to write a book…. Read More

Flash Fiction – Morning Coffee

I pick up my Latte in one hand lacing my fingers around the handle and cradle it with the other. I take small sips while peering over the top. He is exquisite. Tall, tanned with short brown hair that is flicked to the side. Dark brown piercing eyes. He wears a suit jacket that reaches his belt and underneath black trousers, white shirt with the top two buttons undone. He is ridiculously wet from the rain and I notice a small drop of water make its way down a strand of hair and splash… Read More
