It was a privilege to have one of my more “grown-up” tales, A Calm Beneath Castles, recently featured on Lorna Likiza’s blog, Definitely Lorna.
Lorna is an award-winning Kenyan author whose blog focusses on promoting her favourite authors as well as providing advice and sharing her own writing. Lorna went to a lot of effort to put together this feature for me so it would be great if you could head over to her blog and say hi! I’d love to know what you think of the short story as well!
“My little baby what happened?” Claire asked in a panic, kneeling to place her hands on his tiny shoulders for comfort.
“This storm’s going to bring rain, Mummy, and that means I have to go.”
“Well, where are you going, precious?”, Claire forced down the familiar lump in her throat and stroked Tommy’s hair, “You’re scaring Mummy, Baby”.
“Got to find the pirate’s treasure – don’t want to, but got to.”
