Diane lives in Adelaide, South Australia.
They say that love doesn’t just appear on your doorstep…
When Tom Marshall knocks on Paton McLean’s door, she’s sure he is the one for her. Hiring him as a gardener and then a handyman, she keeps him around long enough for their relationship to develop into something more than friendship.
Tom has other ideas about their future, however, and struggles to come to terms with Paton’s certainty that they are meant to be together. It is only in one final karmic twist that Tom realises he’s made the wrong decision…
If you’ve ever loved someone, lost them and wondered if they regretted it, then this short story is for you!
“I loved The One. It was beautifully, beautifully written. Well done!” ~ Alison F (on Amazon)
“Excellent descriptive writing that again, lets you absorb into the world of the characters and put you in the very room it’s all taking place in. I think we have all had one boyfriend who we thought we would be right for and see the future before us. However that boyfriend had other feelings and wanted to remain open for something a ‘little better’ than you that might be just around the corner. Heart-wrenching , but also a tale of truth that we can all relate to, one side or the other. Are we asking too much to seek more out of our partner? Will we regret in the future, the decisions we made in the past?” ~ Vic J. (on Amazon)
“This is a very well written short story in the form of a flashback. Sometimes people come into your life for a short time but can have lasting memories and a lasting impact, and this story explores one of those potential impacts. I highly recommend this for people looking for a quick but well written read, and think it’s a great introduction to the author’s style.” ~ Melinda K. (on Amazon)
