A visitor to my website sent me an e.mail as she liked my short stories and knew someone who was looking for a short story for their new textbook. Shortly after, I was contacted by a publisher at Nathan and I was invited to submit a story for their latest title, Welcome on Board.
The result was the inclusion of ‘Pablo and Vanessa’, a short story about a Spanish boy (Pablo) travelling on a coach to Sheffield in England to see an English woman that he is in love with. Between a series of phonecalls with Vanessa, Pablo receives advice and encouragement from his fellow passengers. Is Pablo on a wasted journey? Will Vanessa fall for his charms?
