A quirky short story about a woman who discovers that not all heroes wear capes… some of them don’t even have a pulse. But they do have a name. Gerald.I learned about this little story from Nicki over at the Secret Library blog. When I found out it was free, I jumped at the chance to read it. I’ve read one other of her short stories, but as yet I’ve read none of her longer works.
Well, what a delight!
A very short story with a very big heart, a few laughs, and an underlying serious topic.
Reading this story and another short of hers called “Betwixt” has made me eager to read some of this author’s longer works.
I purchased my copy of ‘Girl in the Middle‘ from Amazon.ca in Kindle format for FREE!
Now, I’m even more looking forward to reading Evie Gaughan’s full length novel, “The Story Collector“. It has been on my TBR for a while now.
Evie Gaughan is a novelist and lives in the medieval city of Galway, on the West Coast of Ireland. Her books are an eclectic mix of genres, incorporating her love of history, folklore and finding magic in the everyday. She graduated from the Université de Paul Sabatier, Toulouse with a marketing diploma in 1996 and spent the next few years working abroad and discovering that she didn’t like marketing one bit. Evie abandoned the corporate world to follow her dream of becoming a writer and an artist. Since then, she has written three novels, The Heirloom, The Mysterious Bakery On Rue De Paris, and The Story Collector. She also contributes articles to The Irish Times and Women Writers, Women’s Books.
