An extract from Unusual Places

That’s what the main character does in this short story, which I wrote in the Orangery (a very pretty cafe) in Kensington Gardens in London. It’s an extract from my short story collection Unusual Places, published by Cultured Llama. Click here to join my mailing list and download the story.

Here’s a video of me reading the story:
