Book of short stories
Well, that was a quick peek at my book of short stories. This story is about a fisherman in Cornwall who meets his love from a past life, a mermaid, and is called Under the moonlit sky. I expect to publish the book, which is called Oh Wind, do not call my name, at the end of 2015.
