Introduction to a new story

Hi Paradevo Fiction friends. I have been an addicted reader for a while now, but I am also a writer. The issue is that I usually write in French, my native language. As I was dying to contribute to the blog with one of my stories, I decided to give it a try. So here is the first chapter of A Twist Of Fate, a new romance with a hockey player who becomes paraplegic. For the first time I write from the male character’s point of view and it was not obvious, but funny to put myself in a man’s mind. If you want more, just give me your comments. From your reviews I will keep on posting or not. It is a big test for me. Please be lenient about my English, but don’t hesitate to correct me and point out the big mistakes or weird idioms. I had to use the dictionary a great deal, and I am not so sure it is reliable for every translation. For larger comments or corrections, my email address is in the PD website.

Hope you will enjoy the story of Matthew, filled with struggles, suffering, emotion but also joy, happiness, love and….lots of devvy stuff!

Here is the first chapter:
Chapter 1

  1. (I tried to read the story, but I think my phone is being wonky, because it is saying the server can't be found! I'll comment again when I read the story :)

  6. It is weird because I could post it and it worked for me but I am in a hotel room and there might be a problem with their server. I'll try to fix on Sunday but thanks a million for your first comments.
