Kriti is a recently widowed Englishwoman who lives in Crete and writes. On her blog, StreetSweeper, you can read about how she copes with bereavement, and also read some of her short stories. Try, for instance, The Hunnish Princess, which appeared on 26 October. This is an interesting story, well told, but very tragic.
Kriti is also one of those who are taking part in the novel-writing marathon, NaNoWriMo, and she maintains a separate blog about that.
On StreetSweeper, there appears to be a slight software problem when the site is viewed in Internet Explorer, but it looks OK in Mozilla.
