Guiding light to city
My pen in this instance is wielded in service of Mrs Eileen Bosomworth who has an aversion to writing letters and in particular letters to editors.
Her late former husband’s lifetime of failed attempts to have a letter published in The Times of London could explain her aversion.
She now wishes to assure York’s residents and its visitors that she possesses all the attributes, and more, called for by Keith Mulhearn, of Complete Yorkshire, Shambles, to continue being a competent tourist guide for the city.
Mrs Bosomworth also continues being subject to nightmares as a result of the fate of Dr Roland Hampsthwaite, that former husband, and is anxious that Mr Mulhearn should avoid similar affliction.
In all fairness, I feel obliged to add that Eileen is also an important character in my novel, The Cappuccino Club at Jacob’s Well (Eloquent Books, USA); and entirely a product of my imagination.
The actual Jacob’s Well is, of course, a medieval hall in Trinity Lane, off Micklegate.
