Thank You For Being My Friend

This week is a week of goodbyes. Returning to the UK, and saying farewell to expat friends, and village ‘family’. It is an emotional time, and trying to express my thanks for their friendship is not easy, so I wrote for them instead. The picture is from the garden we will be leaving behind. Aphrodite was a gift from my parents, and as dad passed away in October, I cannot leave her behind. She is chipped and weathered but is part of the hard work we put into the huge field we landscaped into something beautiful.

Should you wish to borrow the image, that is fine by me. My copyright is on the picture.

Thank You For Being My Friend.



About Glynis Smy

I live in the UK, in the seaside town of, Dovercourt~Harwich, where I enjoy writing novels. I've written historical romance/suspense, Medical romance and my latest WIP is in the crime genre. The Victorian era fascinates me and the best part of writing a novel is often the research. Proud writing moments in my life: Shortlisted for Festival of Romance Fiction 2014 New Talent Award Reaching second round of Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014 Maggie's Child: reached #1 Amazon best-seller: Historical Romance Victorian /February 2014/ebook & book paid list.

Seeing my books in a Suffolk (UK), library. Over the years I've written short stories in a variety of genres. I've also won a few poetry contests, my first was at the age of twelve, (a poem about the Bangladeshi war). I also won a children's short story competition where the prize was a first-aid box, I was so proud but my husband found it amusing because we owned two pharmacies. My articles have been published in magazines both in the UK and Cyprus. I am also featured in various places on-line. When I am not writing, I enjoy making greetings cards, Cross Stitch, fishing and the company of my little granddaughters.

    Hi Glynis .. gosh the time has come .. you will miss them, but I’m sure you’ll be back to visit at some stage ..

    I hope the return here has gone relatively easily – though I know it’ll take time before you’re settled in … good luck with it all …

    But enjoy being back with the family and the little one .. cheers for now – Hilary
