We write the kind of stories we like to read. Upbeat stories where the protagonist gets handed the sticky end of things but with cleverness and persistence manages to beat someone over the head with it. With luck, he or she grows a bit and maybe finds romance and happiness.
At least, until the next story. Life is boring (for a protagonist) when there are no problems.
We enjoy writing these, and hope you'll enjoy reading them.
