The next author to be showcased as a contributor to the charity anthology
‘When Stars Will Shine’
is HR Kemp
Her story is called
‘A Present of Presence’ and is set in Australia at Christmas time.
It’s a poignant tale of a widow trying to accommodate her in-laws’ grief without destroying the joy of Christmas for her young son. The presence of a stranger is the catalyst for providing an opportunity to develop better understanding, and hope for the future.
About the author
Hr has had several short stories published and has just released her debut novel
a conspiracy/mystery thriller. A second novel in the same genre is in the course of being rewritten, with a third also demanding attention.

USA (ebook and paperback) Amazon.com

Also in Paperback
Fishpond – Australia
With a very unusual first name, and the joys of auto-correct, she has become used to answering to ‘hemline,’ even to the courier delivering her paperbacks from the printer. 😀
The author moved to Australia with her parents at the age of four, and now lives in Adelaide after growing up in country areas near Melbourne. Her passion is for travelling and discovering new places, which she often incorporates into her writing as locations for scenes in her novels. A daily travel journal, and the photos she takes along the way, prove useful reminders of the many countries and cities she has visited around the world.
She is an avid theatre goer, enjoys art exhibitions and galleries, and has used the current need for social distancing to update her knowledge of technology. This will come in particularly handy as she tries to convince the Australian Amazon gremlins to play nicely with their American cousins.
