Its been a while since I last blogged, no excuses, apart from a new job, the ongoing pandemic & a little bit of new writing! Yes, I’ve finally, almost a year after the publication of The Secret of Creek Cottage, put pen to paper (or should I say, fingers to keyboard!) and begun to write a follow on from my debut novel.
So, what can you expect? … Still the same wonderful landscapes of Cornwall and some new characters (as well as a couple of old ones). For those of you who have read The Secret of Creek Cottage, you will follow Lamorna Nance into the Second World War, and well, who knows what that will bring!
You may remember that on the first page of my debut novel were the following words – ‘The supernatural is the natural just not yet understood.‘ – Elbert Hubbard. This set the tone for the rest of the book as its pages unravelled the twists and turns of the lives of Will & Loveday Nance & Kitty & Ben Gridley, their lives unknowingly intrinsically entwined.
And here’s the teaser for the next book …
‘A dream which is not interpreted is like a letter which is not read.’ – Talmud.
Excited? … I am.
In other news, the above photo was taken this week when I stopped off at one of the five libraries in North Somerset where you can take out or reserve a copy of my book. I am a HUGE advocate for libraries and champion their importance when I can, so this visit to the For All Healthy Living Centre on the Bournville Estate in Weston Super Mare, truly meant a lot. Not only is it available in North Somerset but also in eight Cornish libraries.
And finally … I’ve just finished reading the first two chapters of author Stacey Halls new book, Mrs England, and I literally can’t wait to read it in full. Naturally, I have already pre-ordered! I loved The Familiars & The Foundling but I think this is going to be her best yet. You can preorder here.
