Halloween Shorts: Constance Withers and the Wall

greatgranny2

Well, it’s that time of year again! This year’s Halloween Shorts have been herded into place by the marvellous Andrew Reid, and it’s a Team Mushens special – Andrew explains all here, where you can also find links to the other writers participating (and as they’re all Team Mushens, they’re all fabulous, witty and tremendously well-dressed, of course)

A quick note about the photo above: my mum showed me this photo for the first time this evening. The little girl with the awesome hat is actually my great-grandmother, and the mildly sinister couple (who were apparently lovely) were her adoptive parents. The tall woman in the back (who looks a little like Benedict Cumberbatch, or is that just me?) was the evil step-sister – no really, she stole my great-granny’s inheritance. It’s like Dickens or something.

ANYWAY. It was such a fabulous photo, I felt I had to share it with you, particularly as it feels very much in the spirit of my Halloween Shorts story. I like to think that in some magical alternate reality, that little girl grew up to be Constance Withers.
