In order to give a plug for my niece’s band, I thought I would add this ghost story to My Short Story page. It was one I wrote about her a long time ago. She had asked me to use her name in one of my stories, so I let the ideas gel in my mind for awhile. On the way out to my in-law’s cottage for Thanksgiving, I took note of the autumn colours flying past the car window and let my mind wander. It was then that I got the idea for Danalee’s Adventure. The story is pure fiction, but she really was about 14 when I wrote it. If you are interested in reading it, check out My Short Story page.
It’s been a long time since I’d read it, so this morning I thought I’d give it a quick read to make sure it was up to snuff. As I went through this final edit, parts of the story still brought tears to my eyes. Believe me, it was hard to write some of it, way back then, because I could barely see through my tears! I hope it will move you as it has moved me to write it.
Danalee is now a paramedic and sings in the band Electric Angel. If you would like to check out her gig schedule, follow her band on Facebook using the link in the Blogroll, below.
