Story

I've always found reading to be one of the most therapeutic things possible. Just sitting back and escaping into a completely different world can make the difficulties of the real world seem so far away. Writing is very similar for me, and though not every reader likes writing, the two things are often linked. 

I've chosen Beanstalks as they support children that need help reading. Hopefully, the children that get this support can fall in love with one of the most beneficial hobbies that anyone can have. Whether you liked "Delinquent at Christmas" or would rather I never wrote a word again, I'd love it if reading my story can bring you here - to donate a few pounds to a charity that truly deserves it.

Merry Christmas everyone.
