WeLL What’s Your Choice?
The WeLL What’s Your Story event at Cosham library was good fun. Thank you to the team at the library for making me feel so welcome, and to everyone who shared a story with me during the event.
Next week my residency work includes a WeLL What’s Your Story all day event at Copnor Infants school and a podcast recording session at Rant studios. An hour of me reading excerpts from my writing will be recorded and then aired in 15 minute increments at a later date.
I have been told I can read whatever I wish, and that it doesn’t have to be all from one book. I would like to leave that decision up to you ….. big thank you to everyone who has left a comment on my author facebook page about this already. For those of you who are not on Facebook please leave a comment below this post telling me what you would like me to read from the options below:
Without Alice (novel number 1)
Have you ever had a secret? One so important that it feels as if it will tear you in two? Stephen’s got one. He’s also got a great job, beautiful wife and an adorable son. Outwardly his life seems perfect but it means nothing without Alice.
My Dream Of You (novel number 2 – due to be published June 5th 2012)
Crime of passion or cruel twist of fate?
One summer’s day Betty let love carry her a step too far. That exquisite sun dappled afternoon became one of her best memories but also the catalyst for the worst experience of her life. Now elderly, Betty has been running from her past since she was a teenager, and it’s about to catch up with her. Will the experience be as awful as she fears or wonderful beyond imagining?
The Plump WAGs Club (novel number 3 – writing in progress)
How many times have you lost weight, only to regain it all and more?
Join Trish, Cate, Janey and Dida as they struggle with life, love, happiness while they all try to follow two simple rules: eat healthier foods and exercise more.
Special Deliveries (finished and with my agent)
A collection of heavily fictionalized stories written based on my experiences as a midwife. Just like the experiences of the people I have had the privilege to care for; these stories are filled with love, lament, laughter, longing and life changing moments.
Buffalo Grass Valley (number 4 – writing in progress)
Disillusionment and recklessness – emotions experienced by many young adults – but Cody is also concerned that he will become a clone of his father if he doesn’t leave home before it’s too late. One final argument with his father drives Cody of out the house and into a life of roughing it in the Canadian wilderness.
I am writing it in the genre of a modern Western which hasn’t been down before (as far as I am aware), and therefore may end up as a total flop or a huge success.
