Panic, desperation, guilt and utter confusion, we look on bewildered, sad and somewhat angry. Others go along with their daily lives, unmoved. In searing temperature, man, woman, boy, girl all gripped with fear. Terrified of the impending sense of uncertainty. The anguish, the shock, the disorientation and sheer trepidation is etched deeply on all their faces. They ask why have you abandoned us, let us down? In this precarious moment, some flee, some stay and hope for the best. The reality of the situation is, we are all responsible to lend a helping hand because ‘We are our brother’s keeper’.
I live in London with my husband, two children, my adorable cat called MJ (who lives with us in the spirit) and my new cat So-i who’s the queen of the household. I have worked in Education in many different roles and I am currently working as a tutor. I enjoy writing and have always written short stories for fun and relaxation. However, due to work and family constraints, I have not been able to devote as much time as I would like, to writing. I also enjoy reading, cooking, gardening, swimming, jogging and spending time with my family. Writing for me is therapeutic and it gives me the freedom to express myself without judgment. In my writing, I like to highlight issues that affect us as humans, the intricacies of life and also the impermanence of life. My stories relate to reality – although my reality may not be your reality. My short stories and poems are fictional ‘but ‘is it really?’ Some of my work has been published in the CafeLit Magazine, ‘The Drabble and Spillwords Press and I have recently published my Collection of Short Stories ‘Shades of the Soul’ with some of my favourite short stories.
