Writer in Residence Special – The House by the Sea by Paul Andruss

As regular visitors to the blog you will have already enjoyed the factual and fiction posts by Paul Andruss. When I mentioned that I was going to be spending the next week writing, he offered to write a story for the blog in five parts to keep you entertained. I was deeply touched, as would my father-in-law Geoff Cronin, by Paul’s dedication. It is wonderful to have your writing appreciated especially by someone who is himself a superb author.

I am sure you will enjoy this five part story over the next week and I have illustrated with some photographs from the stories of Geoff Cronin.
