Our winner of the 2020 Long Short Story Contest has given me permission to share this with you...
Thank you ever so much for choosing my story.
Looking forward to seeing it in the 23rd Secret Attic Booklet, and reading all the other stories too.
This is a particularly poignant win because the essence of the story is based on a real experience my father had soon after the Second World War. He told the story to me a couple of years ago, and he read an earlier draft. He died last March at the grand age of 91.
Very best wishes
