Abergavenny & Swansea, South Wales, UK
My name is Hugh, and I live in 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 now 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. 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 Corgis Toby and Austin.
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 my photos and work.
You will find some of my short stories, flash fiction, and poetry on my blog and I hope you enjoy reading them. Flash Fiction has become a big part of my writing and I enjoy participating in various writing challenges.
I welcome any feedback on my blog and hope my readers will engage with me by leaving comments on my posts. I promise that I’ll respond to all comments. 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.
I’m delighted to announce that my first collection of short stories is now available on Amazon. The book is called ‘Glimpses’ and is available as both a paperback and an eBook. The Kindle version is now only 99p.
