TWO GIRLS IN A CAFÉ
London, England: A young man becomes the subject of a contentious conversation between Felicity and Ruth. The two girls, American and British respectively, know or claim to know, him. They spotted him at a short distance from a cafe. Their impressions differ about his character. Moreover, Felicity's and Ruth's perspectives are contrasting, concerning a man's need to impress a woman during a love encounter which can easily lead to dishonesty. Ruth's critical reflection of the young man's personality traits is intended for Felicity as a warning. The question becomes whether Felicity's and Ruth's perceptions of the young man are accurate remains to be seen.
Amazon Review: "Contemporary, witty, honest and ironic".

About the Author
I was born in Guyana, immigrated to England; worked and studied in London, before taking up residence in Sweden, in autumn 1969. In the 70s, I tried my hand at writing, mostly short stories, a four-act closet drama, a novella, and an unfinished novel. I had then spent two years nurturing the ambition to become an author of some repute. But the going was tough, creating a feeling of insecurity for the future. In time, I shelved the idea and got a job as a hospital porter. I later did a BA (Eng. & Edu.). After a summer job at a psychiatric hospital, I decided to do a 4-term course for mental-health carers, Following that I completed the first of two stages of psychotherapy education and several short courses in cognitive therapy. After retirement, I did mental health counselling work for several years. In February 2016, my debut book appeared: Strangers In Another Country, a collection of two short stories and two novellas, available in ebook and paperback at Amazon.
