Anne Blythe Daley is my pen name. I have been an ink smeared scribbler for most of my life, experimenting with many different genres and modes of expression. I have finally found my niche in short stories and novellas. As with most people, I write best about what I know best. The stories in Blackwell Station are a love close to my heart - they are about where I come from and are a part of who I am. The Tin Box is based on a true story of someone whom I love very much.
The Tin Box is a simple story of love, grief and loss. It is a story which has happened to so many girls and women. Yet there is the complexity of relationships and emotions and how they affect and alter lives. The story is set against the backdrop of World War II, the Children's Evacuation and post-war London. Lucy enjoys a brief blaze of happiness before her life is torn apart by betrayal.
A modern day dreamer is given a glimpse of a forgotten era. For our narrator, Blackwell Station, a tiny dot in Southwestern Ontario, comes alive again as she is led back through the mists of time. This is a collection of lightly connected short stories by a writer who finds the extra in the ordinary.
