Christina Jones talking to Marian Lanouette about Only One Woman and her award-winning career

← Jane Risdon’s Only One Woman Written by Two Today I welcome the other half of Only One Woman-Christina Jones Posted on November 7, 2017 by Marian Lanouette Hello Christina, and thank you for appearing here today. I’m excited about your book Only One Woman Only ONe Woman cover Feb 27th 2017 1. What inspired your latest book? ONLY ONE WOMAN is a collaboration with my friend and fellow-author, Jane Risdon. We have long wanted to co-write a book but as Jane writes gritty crime and I write froth and bubble rom-com, the subject matter was always a problem – until we realised that we shared a love – and experience – of all-things-60s… And from that light-bulb-moment Only One Woman was born.

Ghostly Writes Anthology 2017 Coming soon from Plaisted Publishing  with my short story As Cold As Ice A recently widowed new young mother accepts an invitation to move in with her late husband’s family. Their greeting is far from warm and they show little interest in their one and only grandchild, when the young mother arrives at the farm house in Jersey (Channel Islands) which is to become her home for the foreseeable future. Her bedroom opens on to a long corridor leading to the only bathroom on the floor her room occupies and getting to the bathroom proves a chilling experience for her… Based on a real farmhouse and events in Jersey but, of course, there is a lot of poetic license too… Coming soon.
