Abergavenny & Swansea, South Wales, UK
My name is Hugh, and I live in both the town of Abergavenny and the city of Swansea, South Wales, in the United Kingdom.
I write about all kinds of everyday life and what it brings to us all. Nothing too serious, most of the time just about the little things in life and how important they can be to all of us. Some of my posts will be humorous while others may bring a tear to the eye.
I have always enjoyed writing and the fact I suffer from a mild form of dyslexia has not stopped me. Yes, I get things wrong with my reading and writing but I always find those mistakes humorous and always laugh about it. I no longer allow dyslexia get in my way. Now in my fifties, I thought it about time I let my writing become public and becoming a blogger seemed to be the perfect way for me to do this. I lead a very happy life and always try to stay positive. I share my life with my wonderful Civil Partner, John, and our Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Toby, who I both cherish with all my heart.
I write about life because I find it so fascinating. I have many stories to tell, some of which I have started to put into a book. I think my life has been incredible and I want to share it with anyone that wants to listen. I am also a wonderful listener and I love to be interactive with other people. I guess you could say I am a 'people person.'
I am interested in photography and my blog now includes some of the photos I have taken.
You will find some of my short stories, flash fiction, and poetry on my blog and I hope you enjoy reading them.
I am also a book reviewer and write articles over at Lit World Interviews which was set up by Ronovan, of Ronovanwrites. The site is the perfect place for Indie authors to share their work and to interact with others. It's a place to find advice and for Indie Authors to promote themselves, write, edit, and publish their work. I'm part of a small team over there, all of whom are great writers.
I welcome any feedback on my blog and hope my readers will engage with me by leaving comments on my posts. I promise to try to respond to all of them. After all, if somebody has taken the time to read one of my posts and leaves me a comment, then it is only polite for me to respond to that comment and engage with the reader. I want you all to enjoy reading my blog and, hopefully, you will press the follow button and join me on my journey. I would love to have you come along for the ride.
My first collection of short stories, Glimpses, is now available to buy on Amazon. I'm now in the process of putting a second collection of shorts stories together.
