Meet Phyllis Bohonis a Richmond resident and author with five novels published. Her works are available at The Village Shoppe on Perth Street or through bookstores. Most of her books involve characters who are aged fifty plus. She has written some short stories, some are fiction, some are memoir based, which she has read at Seniors’ Homes around the province. A few have also been published through the Ottawa Citizen.
Phyllis describes her style as “a Canadian Author writing Canadian stories in Canadian settings”. Her last two books, The Track a story of intrigue and suspense and Helen Whittaker a lighter story which is the first in a series known as the 73 Windsor Series, are in bookstores now. Her books are also available as eBooks for your Kobo, Kindle or tablet.
I look forward to working with Phyllis and publishing a series of her short stories on a regular basis. She indicates “My intention is to create some interest among our seniors in writing their own short stories or memoirs”. In fact she offers to place a hint or two after each story or to replace the stories from time to time with hints on getting started. If there is enough interest generated by her articles she will consider working with readers who are interested in writing short vignettes on their life or even short fiction pieces.
Watch for regular installments from Phyllis here at the RichmondHUB.ca beginning shortly. You will be able to read the short stories on line or download a .pdf copy to share with a friend or relative who may not be comfortable with eReading. Speaking as editor and as a local resident I am thrilled Phyllis will be sharing her stories and insights here for all to enjoy.
