Welcome to my website and short story blog!

What sort of stories do you like to read? True stories? Tales about people, their struggles and achievements, their pain and joy? Reflections on life and things that are important to you? Stories that bring the past to life? Tales that make you laugh or cry?

Apparently, these are the kind of stories most of us read, like and share online. We are interested in the big questions of life, self-improvement, kids and parenting (and grand-parenting), relationships, food, travel, family history, ageing and mortality. My short story blog covers these topics and more!

My stories are based on my life experience, family archives and ongoing research, people I’ve met and places I’ve called home or visited in the past or more recently. I write about food in the context of family life and home cooking.

Some of my stories may touch you deeply. They reveal God’s providence and grace in my life and the lives of special others and the triumph of faith, hope and love over adversity and suffering. 

If you enjoy my stories and recipes, you are welcome to share them (for example on Facebook, or Twitter). As well, so you won’t miss a single post, you can sign up to receive an email whenever I post a new story on my blog.

Once again, welcome to my site!
