Blog Tag: My Work In Progress

Comments Off on Blog Tag: My Work In Progress News

The lovely Lucy Pireel has tagged me for this Blog Tag Game


and all I had to do was answer a few questions

1. What are you currently working on?  PhotoFunia-36d42d9_s

I am currently polishing “A TIME TO LET GO”, a book about a British family and their battle with Alzheimers and their family dynamics. I am also editing my new Baltic/ Scandinavian War Drama, currently loosely entitled “IN SEARCH OF A REVOLUTION”.

2. How does your work differ from others in the same genre?

“A TIME TO LET GO” is a very personal and intimate look at the issue of caring for family members and how the disease can be a challenge for the carers. The disease affects every patient differently and so every story will bring something different to the table. No one story can tell you everything about it.

“IN SEARCH OF A REVOLUTION” takes place in a fascinating era and location before, during and after WW2. To me that is an area of recent European History that I knew little about. The research has been incredibly rewarding for me and I hope many people will find the story and its background equally interesting.

3. Why do you write what you do?

At the moment I am going through a very lucky streak of inspiration.

Alzheimers is an issue very close to my heart and I wanted to share experiences that I had first or second hand. The fictional components for this book were fun to write. 

In History classes we learned not more than one paragraph about Scandinavia in the 20th Century. I wanted to know more and as so often, while researching, the characters and the story began to form.

4. How does your writing process work? 

I tend to carry a plot or a character idea with me for some time. Eventually I get round to researching the subject / history and then the story and characters develop more during the writing. I re-write all of my books several times, then I involve beta readers and re-write again. Then it goes to the editors.



Now for 15 bloggers I admire and that deserve your attention:
