Oh dear! I didn't realise that I hadn't updated my website for a year. Where does the time go?
Anyway, I am correcting that omission now. A new section has been added - NANW - which shows some of the articles that I've written for the Neighbourhood Watch magazine.
An update on my writing. I mentioned sometime ago that I was putting together a book about my parents using the letters that they wrote just after WW2. Well, at long last I have uploaded my data to Blurb so that I can see how well the original photos work. I travelled round Europe in the summer last year and took photos of various places which I have been able to include in the book.
The book of Memories for Barcroft School is still ongoing but as I'm still short of memories for several decades it's not going very quickly. With luck, though, I'll be able to get a book with memories from every decade since 1910 (the School opened in 1909!) which would be excellent.
My historical novel, working title 'Hannah's House' is written but I'm not quite finished with it yet. It's undergoing peer review at the moment so it may or may not see the light of day as a real novel, I'll decide that later on.
Next novel 'Virus!' is a modern day techno-thriller and is a collaboration with my husband. Watch this space for an update... and there's a time-travel novel in the pipe-line too. Also in collaboration with my husband, we have put together some children's stories about 'Hare, Rabbit and Tortoise'. We need an artist now for illustrations. That too is a work in progress.
So, as you can see, I might not have been able to add too much to the site recently, but I certainly haven't been idle!
Best wishes and happy writing
