I wrote a short story about love at first sight... and then what happens next when life gets in the way.

I wrote a short story with sex in it. (SHOCK, HORROR!)

I wrote a short story using just two words in each sentence. 

This short story is now available for you to read -> http://www.asthebirdfliesblog.com/posts/together-apart-short-story-extract

Story
Tagline
I'm a Londoner turned wanderer who has been nomadic since October 2011. I write a blog about travel, freelancing and following your dreams. I also write and self-publish fiction. And I write words for websites, magazines, brochures and blogs as a copywriter.
Introduction
I am a self-published author of contemporary fiction and a hyperlocal London blogger (Bird in the Bush) turned travel blogger (As the Bird flies...).

I write stories about special places, genuine experiences, different perspectives and how travel makes people feel. 

In August 2013, I self-published my first short story collection called "Shy Feet: Short Stories Inspired by Travel". You can buy these tales of adventure, wanderlust and unusual journeys for just £2.80 ($4.49 USD) from my blog or from Amazon and Kobo.

You can read one of the short stories, called See the Amalfi Coast for free.Download it from here or buy for $1.00 on Amazon or Kobo.
