    Article by Pat Cox. A seasonal story from Pat – especially for Halloween , with a few words from Pat on the story behind the story.   When did you start writing short stories?

    Short Story by Patricia Mary Cox The first of our featured short stories to be contributed by our readers. I have been entranced by Pat’s short stories for some time – I always look forward to her links to her latest when she posts them on twitter! This is one of my favourites. Enjoy! It was raining again, she looked out of the window and the puddles looked more like little turbulent oceans as the raindrops and wind battered them; Olivia sighed no one would be coming to view the house today. It was such a shame that the rain put people off, she supposed the fact that there wasn’t any heating on in the house didn’t help as the estate agents couldn’t dry off by leaning against the radiators while...
