Hi Alyson,
Still trying to find my feet... Not easy when you are lying sideways in a kilt. I am Scots born, which may become more obvious as I submit on the site.
Thanks for the welcome. Look forward to reading your work.

I am trying to join the Skype meeting but have no idea how to do that. I have a new Skype account, my old one was screwed up.

Hi Alyson,

Thanks very much for your welcome. I liked your piece with the lavender aroma. Just trying to drum up the courage to post something of my own.

About Me
General About Me
Alyson grew up in England but has spent most of her adult life living abroad. She has lived in both Europe and Asia and sees the advantages of living in both, however after careful consideration she would always opt for a warm climate. Alyson writes short stories in her spare time and has won and been runner up in several Writers News and Writing Magazine competitions. She writes occasional copy for travel websites, mainly about Asia where she currently lives and would love to have more time to write more regularly. Since joining Writers Abroad Alyson has learnt about the benefits of belonging to a writing group, and is enormously grateful for the help and support offered by her cyber friends. "Spooked", a Bridge House anthology of ghost stories includes one of Alyson's short stories and is available for purchase on the home page of this website.
