The decision for Amber and myself to get a robot nanny for our son, Jimmy, was a no-brainer – cheaper than a human nanny, programmed with unwavering loyalty and a personality to adapt to an ‘optimal living environment.’ What more could any busy, career-driven parents want?
Manny – designed with a likeness to my wife so people would assume she was a blood relation – arrived on our doorstep two days before the birth of our son.
And before long, Amber and I were unable to remember a time we could manage – survive – without our robot nanny.
C. A. Hewitson likes playing ‘ghost game’ with her children, eating vegan with her husband to help save the planet, and going to the cinemas with old friends.
She likes writing short stories most of all, because she can explore all genres and get lost in the worlds of her characters. Supernatural and paranormal stories are her favourite.
