The Black Bitch and other Tales – Serialisation – Flinches by Geoff Cronin

FlinchesCurrants from Turkey, sultanas from Crete, seedless raisins from California and muscatels from Greece – these were some of the ingredients used in the production Cronin’s Bracks. The currants came in white wood boxes with wire straps on them; sultanas came also in white wood boxes secured with nails. The seedless raisins came in cardboard boxes and the muscatels arrived in nondescript wooden boxes.And then there were the Californian raisins, which came in the very best boxes of clean wood of a pinkish colour. The wood was straight grained and clean and the lids were secured with nails.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.

I would be delighted to receive your feedback. Thanks Sally
