I knew that I had a book in me a long time ago, but, like many I suppose, it took me a long time to finally take the plunge and actually commit fingers to the keyboard. The result, after several years’ planning and a year or so writing, was “The Healing Shard”.
I went down the conventional route to get “The Healing Shard” published, and had interest from several literary agents, which culminated in trekking off to London to meet one of them. But after two years of emails backwards and forwards, and edits and suggestions and changing the book this way and that, I got – to be blunt about it – fed up!
The manuscript languished on my hard drive for a couple of years after that and I contented myself with writing short stories.
Then a friend told me that she had self-published her book. I looked into it and decided I’d give it a shot. And so here it is, on Amazon – “The Healing Shard”!
I hope you enjoy it. Let me know if you do, and even (surely not!) if you don’t!
Apart from writing, I spend time walking, marvelling at the night sky and helping where I can with the conservation of this jewel of a planet we call Earth.
I live in Northamptonshire still, with my partner of 18 years, Jill.
