She told me that she was browsing in a bookshop and started chatting to two ladies, who were strangers and turned out to live at the other side of the county.
She said "I have a friend who writes stories online as Linda Hoyland and had a book privately printed of her stories." (There was an offer in the newpaper I read)
One of the ladies replied " Oh, I know about her, my friend follows her stories on the internet !"
What a small world ! That made my day,though.
