Found the site in November 2011. Love the friendly and easy format. Write stories and the occasional poem. Have two books published, available from Amazon. The East End Butcher Boy and Eastendbutchers Short Story Collection.  Always amazed at the diversity of the site and the quality of the writing. Try to write as much as I can and like to try different styles. Hope you like my stories. 

Find me on www.jolono.wordpress.com

And my first book on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_i_0_21?url=search-alias%3Daps&fie...

Posted on Mon, 18 Aug 2014

For some strange reason i really liked this. Not because it isnt good but because its not usually my kind of thing. But the writing is good and honest and somewhere struck a chord.

Nice piece.
