← 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. We’ve had so much fun with it. We wrote it as a two-hander, from the point of view of two girls – Renza and Stella – who are miles apart geographically, socially and emotionally, and who have both met and fallen in love with, Scott, the sex-on-legs guitarist with Narnia’s Children… 2. How likely are people you meet to end up in your next book? Oh, always – especially if they’ve annoyed me! But hopefully they’d never recognize themselves. I use snippets of character; of appearance; a way of walking or talking; add a large dash of make-believe – and roll it all into one – and then, if they’ve upset me in real life, make sure they get their fictional come-uppance. It’s very […]

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.

If you pop in here now and again you’ll know that I don’t just ‘do’ pieces about my crime writing or guest author interviews on my blog.

When I was about two years of age I was taken to Singapore on an aeroplane as we called them then. I’ve been back there many times since and I am in awe of the journey and the length of time it takes to fly there now, non-stop. Modern planes and all that. But imagine this. When I first flew […]

It’s been a long hot summer so far – it is raining now – and I’ve been stuck inside most of the time writing and working on edits, so it cannot be any surprise that now and again I break free. I’ve recently completed an Archaeology course and my 7th Forensics and Criminal Justice Course and have felt the need […]

Apologies if you have waited for it and several other ‘jollies’ I’ve enjoyed of late. […]
