Start 2019 off right by reading a new story by Paola Ferrante on Joyland Canada. Edited by Kathryn Mockler
"Whatever Jeremy would say, the snakes were always a problem. I know if Jeremy told our story he would say he never saw the snake, but ask anyone in the part of Bangkok near the house that was going to be ours and they will say it belongs to the snakes, to king cobras that grow up to six metres in length, or to Burmese pythons which have been known to attack humans, sometimes the occasional alligator. Even the airport itself is built on what used to be known as Cobra Swamp. If it was Jeremy telling you our story, he would say I was the problem; he would never go out of his way to find the snake to kill it. With Jeremy, seeing was believing."
