I’ve been writing stories since I was a teenager. It was my therapy! Believe me, when you’re visited by dead relatives, you need therapy. I shared these stories with my friends and class mates at the High School I attended in Richmond, North Yorkshire.
My stories were passed around during lunch breaks and I became quite the celebrity.
In 2008 I decided it was time to start writing again and when I finished my first short story I plucked up courage to share it with my husband. I was very apprehensive (and a little embarrassed) when I showed it to him. Imagine my surprise when he told me how much he enjoyed reading it and suggested I sell it on Amazon as an e-Book.
I re-read and edited my story as best I could. It wasn’t perfect, I had a lot to learn, but I published it anyway. This story was ‘Guy at the bar’. I sold a few copies, not enough to make me rich, but enough to make me realize I wanted to continue with my writing career.
‘Guy’ is currently in re-hab and will be back sometime in 2015. ‘Girl on the Beach’ is being completely re-written. She’s still the same little girl, lost in a nightmare, but her story will be much more appealing. Watch out for it, there will be some offers and freebies when it’s launched.
My current novel ‘Dead of July’ is for sale on Amazon. Love this book.
