Sorry it’s been a while since I last wrote. Unfortunately I damaged the nerve going to my hand and couldn’t do anything for a few weeks. It’s slowly improving now.
I’m pleased to say I have published two more books since I last wrote. Murderous Feet is a murder mystery. See if you can work out whodunnit. All the characters have a motive so it could be anyone. If I’ve done the job right it will keep you guessing to the end. It has a few twists and turns in it.
I have also just published A Bruised Reed which is non fiction. I have written my story of living with severe ME and all the problems that brought. Not just fighting the illness itself but professionals and others who didn’t accept I was really ill. It is not just an account of my illness as I write about my healing as well. My hope is that it will give hope to other sufferers and their carers and encourage them. My book talks about my faith in a loving God in spite of suffering. He never let me go and He won’t you either.
My latest project I recently started is historical fiction set in France during WW2. Eve, a Jew, arrives at a convent with her young daughter looking for safety from the Nazis. Her husband was taken and she has no idea of his fate. The book’s title is currently A Place of Safety. I’ve a long way to go yet as I have just started writing it.
I also need to start editing Missing which is a novel about a young child who goes missing in the middle of the night.
I have just finished a copywriting course and hope to get some freelance writing jobs. It would be my ideal job if it works out.
As you can see despite my silence I have still been busy behind the scenes writing and editing books. It was awful not being able to write while my hand was bad. I love writing and was just itching to get at it again. Here I am, and on the whole my hand is much better and able to function almost normally now.
