The more things change …

As Jean-Baptiste Karr said ‘Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose’. As always, it’s been far too long since I updated my blog.

In my last post, I mentioned completing my novel ‘Second Chance’. That’s published and selling well. Blue Lil and Paradise Landing continue to attract readers and people are again asking what happens now? I can feel the first tingling of the next Paradise Landing novel but currently I am halfway through another book of travel stories.

I had to travel far and wide to add to the last collection – ‘Turn Right at the Pink Shirt’. In 2017, Guy and I visited Thailand and Myanmar. Both feature in this new book, together with stories from our European trip of 2015 to Italy and Greece, with stopovers in Seoul and London. Closer to home, there are tales of sailing sojourns and family excursions.

As our family increases, I have found joy in the role of grandmother to an ever burgeoning cast of grandchildren. I’m sure they find it difficult to get their little heads around a grandmother who fights fires, scuba dives, has constantly changing hair colour and thinks it essential to dance every day.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.
