Childhood companions and inspirations

Take one teddy bear, gifted in 1969

by a travelling relative

to a little girl,

Wee girl hugging her teddy

Add years of companionship, imagination and whimsical adventures.

Gently pull back the curtain


adolescent memories

of hurt

and loss.

Dig out a box containing a pile of rushed attempts for a last-minute application to a graphic arts program.

      Thank you for reading, John. I hope to have the second print edition of the novel out in a few years. Otherwise, there’s always Smashwords for the current ebook version.
