I first came to ABC last December after hearing John Bird being interviewed on Radio 5. He mentioned a young author called Liza Granville. It suddenly struck me that a lot of newbies to the site will not have seen her work yet.
She hasn't appeared to write for a while now but I suspect I know why that is. Time will tell.
Anyway, not all of her output is my cup of tea but it is still possibly the best of writing on this site. If you haven't read her yet - do so - then sob to yourself as you wish you had half her talent.
You can find her collection under the username ' Liza'.
My second recommendation is the story 'It' by James_burr. This should be mandatory reading for all contributors. If it makes you feel uncomfortable then hopefully you will have learned something today.
