I'm a writer and painter. Author of three novels: Man on the Balcony, Maggie's Retreat, and Spanish Moss. My last book, LIFE INTERRUPTED - A MEMOIR is now available in soft, hard cover and as e-book. See Amazon.com for reviews. I also write essays and articles for Associated Content, PGA NATIONAL CAN newspaper,and other publishers. I paint in oils - varied subject matter.
Simon, I enjoyed your book "Private Lives" very much. For such an unusual plot, you handled it very well. I thoroughly enjoyed your descriptive "sense of place" throughout the book. It is a great love story, also. My only disappointment was that it ended too abruptly. However, the epilogue left me feeling happy and hopeful. Private Lives is a great read and totally believable - at least to me.
Thank you for your kind comments on my short story Evening Reflections. In answer to your question it was never designed to be a blog and does form part of a collection of stories which I've never got around to publishing. Perhaps I should give it a try. I hope you enjoy Private Lives but look forward to your critique either way.
I'm sorry I haven't responded sooner. Forgive me. So much going on here. My son and daughter-in-law are newly married (last year) and are expecting their first baby in 3 wks! We'll be first-time grandparents!
Yes, I'd love to be your friend in Florida :) I'm in the Jacksonville area and I wrote my Christian women's book about 10 yrs. ago, but had it
published 2 yrs. ago. Then this year, I re-published a revised edition with added material and new cover. Now the fun begins. Marketing and promotion are challenging to be sure. I know God will open the doors that need to be opened at the right time. Waiting is not fun, but often necessary. Please visit my website at www.Godmissionpossible.com to see what it is all about! I look forward to going to your website and investigating further soon... Sounds like you've been busy writing for awhile. God bless you,
