A short story about passions, dreams and expectations, published by Scarlet Leaf Review

‘Break Free’ follows a violinist who plays not for himself but because others expect it of him, and the day he finally finds freedom in his music.

I wrote the outline of this piece a while back and it’s still one of my favourites. I love it because it’s all about chasing dreams and passion, and that’s what I try to do with my writing! I’m thrilled to see it find it’s home in Scarlet Leaf Review: June 2018 Issue.
