    Hi Brian, I sent you a story for the competition coming up in March for St. Patrick’s week. I hope you have had a chance to read it and hopefully like it. I am sorry but in my haste to send it off to you I forgot to include a synopsis etc. It has 736 words and the target audience age is 6 and up.

    A young girls chance encounter with a leprechaun leads her to understandings that there are many things in life better then gold!
    p.s. My husband reminded me that the story was my idea and I got it off to a good start before I asked for his input. Lots and lots of tea drinking went into the making of this story. So my hubby Jim he wants me to have first billing, ha ha. Can’t wait for spring!
