It was never my dream to be a writer. But having a good imagination and being good at writing essays and short stories at school led me to writing more short stories in my spare time after leaving school and then again when I was a bit older. Writing then became an escape from the stresses of real life.
Being an old romantic at heart, and a football fan, I wrote a short story during my lunch breaks at work a few years ago. That story was called Grande Plage. It’s about a young footballer who is loaned out to a French club one summer and falls in love with a girl while he’s there. His stay in France is cut short and he has to leave the girl behind. Many years later, with an aching heart, he returns to France to see if the girl is still there. After receiving a few good comments about it from people I’d privately shared it with, I posted the story on my blog and eventually, I published it as a short story on Amazon for Kindle.
Football related romance has become the subject I’m comfortable with since writing the two novels that are The Shane Henderson Diary Series.
