  To BUY BOOKS My Website:   https://dianebator.ca/ One of the fun things I've been able to do this past couple years is be a part of several podcasts. This short story, was shared on Randy Lacey's Between the Lines blog before Christmas. I wrote it with a local man in mind who pushes several shopping carts around town. I often see him parked outside a local bank sitting on the bench and minding his own business. This story is purely fictional. Twelve Wheeler Christmas By Diane Bator   Ben watered the six-inch Christmas tree with a cold, shaky hand. He was surprised it still thrived in the damp cold of the Ontario winter. Was it his imagination or had it grown just a titch? He capped the water bottle, careful not to spill a drop. There might be a need for it later to soothe his rumbling stomach. “Excuse me,” a woman said, “you can’t park that here.” That was the line of three shopping carts Ben pushed through the streets of town. His Twelve Wheeler. Up and down both

December Round Robin Blog Fest

  Happy Holidays to  you all!! Twas the week before Christmas and the blog fest is here For reasons that really aren't exactly clear We're writing about how our family deeds Translate into delicous writing scenes In other words:  How do your family experiences translate into writing scenes? In spite of various family members recurring nightmares about being characters in my books, I’ve been pretty easy on most of them. Sure, the odd friend has appeared as a victim or an innocent bystander in my mysteries, but I never portray them as awful people. For the most part, rather than blatantly use one person in my books I tend to mesh two or three people into one character using traits, features, and habits from each in different ways. The writing group in The Bookstore Lady is a great example. No, they are not based on my local writing group aside from bits of various personalities.
