People often ask me what my novels are about. Well, they are all different, but one thing many have in common: a female who is in a difficult situation. (One is about a male in a difficult situation.) “Existing” is about a girl who is attempting to cope with her father’s suicide by not talking. “Nightmares of Murder” is about a young lady who does not want to go to sleep because of her horrible nightmares in which she has murdered someone. “The Red Cloak” is about a young woman who finds her doppelgänger and trades places with her – then she can’t get back to her own life. “No One Like You” is set in the 1970s, about a hearing young woman of Deaf parents who falls in love with a rising rock star.
And Vinnie Pinchey – well, it is all Vinnie Pinchey.
Last night I finished my 13th novel, two days before the end of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Hooray! Hooray! Now I have some editing to do – but I can go on with life! My other projects are off ‘hold’ now.
Of course I am writing a novel this month! November is National Novel Writing Month! Vinnie Pinchey.
These are the 3 books: After the Great Devastation, The Hidden City, Immediate Search. The first book came to me in a complete dream, even the names of the characters. For the 2nd and 3rd books, I had to use my imagination.
Have you ever been obsessed with someone? I was so in love with Freddie Mercury, after seeing Queen in concert in 1977, that I wrote a book of poetry for him. I sent him a copy in 1984, and now the new edition is available in paperback.
Remembering Freddie today, on his 70th birthday.
