Getting my hands on a paperback copy of my writing, seeing it in a store or online; from my head to the pages of a book never ceases to thrill me
I spent a fun 15 minutes chatting about Only One Woman and writing with the talented Christina Jones, plus we nattered about being teens in the 1960s and what a fab experience that was for teens living through those heady times
My interview with theauthorsshow.com is live for 24 hours EST 13th August – pop over and have a giggle with me.
My interview with theauthorsshow.com is live – it went up 12.01am EST 13th August and will play for 24 hours from midnight to midnight EST and can be found in archives on the show after. Just look for my name and the book cover. https://wnbnetworkwest.com/WnbAuthorsShow6.htm Do drop in, I had such a giggle with the presenter, Linda Thompson, as we discussed the 1960s, Only One Woman, writing with the talented Christina Jones and more. We chatted about music in the 1960s and how Graham Bonnet and his hit single in 1968 – Only One Woman – came to be the title of our novel. Graham wrote the foreword for Only One Woman and tells how he met The Bee Gees and how they came to write for him and his cousin, the late Trevor Gordon (The Marbles). It is a fab read and of course, Only One Woman launched his singing career (Rainbow, Alcatraz, Michael Schenker, Blackmore and other bands). Only One Woman – an epic love story from the 20th century with lots of music, fashion, and the social change references not to mention the Moon Landings and the odd assassination and The Cold War! You’ll have ear-worms when favourite songs are mentioned and the fashions of the day will transport back with a heavy dose of nostalgia as you recall Jools Driscoll, Samantha Juste, Cathy McGowan and Twiggy, David Bailey, and all the bands of the time such […]

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.

It has been hard work – two authors trying to synchronize their writing and personal lives in order to write a novel together, it was never going to be easy. […]
