The Girl From The Opera House is my first short story, and a very different challenge to writing a full 500 page novel. For those of you who have taken advantage of the free download, I do hope you have enjoyed Millie’s story. The Opera House in Dudley, the centre of the ‘action’ in the tale, actually existed but burnt down on 1st November 1936. A new theatre – The Hippodrome – was built on the same site a little while after, and stands very close to the entrance to Dudley Zoo and that of the Black Country Living Museum.
