My new book "The Fish Catcher" has just been released, and I'm very excited about that. I'm busy on promoting and selling the work (or at least attempting to do so!) while continuing to write away, while the ideas are still coming thick and fast. Who knows that might not always be the case.
I have completed two longer works, "White Flags" and "The Legal & The Illicit" but the re-writing and editing seems to take forever. It's a little like painting the Forth Road Bridge, it's never finished, you get to the end, and the beginning needs attention again.
I'd dearly like to find a mainstream agent or publisher to take them on, though I guess that's what so many of us are seeking.
The Fish Catcher
Mary Fissleborough is fourteen. She has resisted being "sent to the country" dozens of times, but when the Mulryne's house opposite is flattened one afternoon by a German bomb, she thinks better of it. It is London in 1940, and the city is living through the hell of the blitz. Two days later along with her younger sister Daisy, and in the company of five hundred young strangers, she boards the train out of Paddington station bound for rural Devon two hundred miles to the west.
They pitch up at a small town where the kids are collected by their new mums and dads. Some are wanted, some definitely not, but neither the children nor the adults have a choice in the matter. There's a war on don't you know.
The Fissleborough sisters end up at Wolfdale Hall, but after the initial euphoria of their new home, Mary begins to wonder if all is as it seems.
Who is the guy Oliver Tresco who hangs around the Hall doing nothing? Why is the front bedroom kept locked and bolted at all times? And where is the daughter Cicely, who no one has ever seen? And are the sisters ultimately safe at the Hall?
As Mary delves deeper into the secrets of Wolfdale she uncovers things that might have been better left undisturbed, but even she could not have imagined where they might lead.
