"Upstairs is where the magic happens – if you let it. Upstairs is where the books are. More than a thousand second hand books in a multitude of dizzying colours."
Blue Mist Café is a book of short stories and some poems tied together by the goings on in the café. On the ground floor there is the proprietor who works the coffee machine while he expresses his opinion on any subject, fortunately with a broad humour. There are two floors. The top one is stacked high with thousands of books and, it is said, a ghost that minds them. It is at table fifteen upstairs where A. C. Llewellyn finds her stories. They are memories from her long life, tales told her by friends and family, cosmological thoughts and the occasional enchantment of the books on the café shelves. Between the stories there is the breather of a short poem – well – most of them are short.

About the Author
A.C. Llewellyn was born in Surrey, England way back when. She, or he as she was then, travelled widely in her younger days, hitchhiking twice around the world until she ran out of money and found herself in Australia in 1964. She has been there ever since though with frequent international trips. She was a teacher ending that career in 2001 and became a practitioner of Bio Resonance medicine. In 2012 she gave up the fight against gender dysphoria and changed gender in 2013. For the last ten years she has been trying to retire but her business is too demanding. She paints, though hesitates to call herself an artist, sings in choirs, meditates and enjoys her friends and family.
