We are sad to report that UKAuthors regular Weefatfella (Paul Hawthorne) sadly passed away last week.

In an email, his daughter says:

He so loved your site and uploading his lovely wee short stories there. I have taken great comfort in reading them over the last week and will continue to do so…

A huge thank you to everyone on your site who showed their support for his writing which he so loved.

We send our sympathy and thoughts to Paul’s family & friends at this sad time.

Here is Paul’s UKArchive
