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.

Hi mate, hope you're well. This was a triumph of poetry madness. Exactly what I want from a Lavadis piece! Witty, intelligent, original, zany yet beautifully wonderful in its extremes.

Loved it.

I thought this was a great story! The introduction was inviting, then the story began with all the confines of her religion and culture, then the ending with the fish swishing its tail and the big brother smiling! I do so love a good story and this...Read full comment
