Roger Penney

Author Roger Penneyabout this book: The girl, I spotted her, as she got on at the Guildhall; it was her, I just knew it was. But I also knew it was not her it could not be her. I am an old man now and she who I thought it was is an old woman. An old man gazing as a girl on a bus thinking of what might have been.

There is more. Read how we watched the people, all the different people, from a cafe window. Read how their stories unfolded. Fictional, of course; but they may have been true, you never know. I entered this for a competition to find the best short story about Portsmouth. It did not win, did not even get a mention. Not surprising really when you consider the people and the subject.

A Paradise, a magic place by the sea. It was hidden by the cliffs which overhung and increased the power of the magic. A track only used by rabbits and other wildlife led there out onto the edge of the cliff and down to where there was only birdsong, the wild cries of the gulls and the gentle lapping of the wavelets on the sand.

There are more. Tales from my childhood, tales of love, of laughter and of heartbreak. Tales told by an old man who is achieving a lifelong ambition.
