How it all began

 

A song, a flash from the past

 

She hears them and she doesn’t, locked in a private corner of her past. A painful memory she’s been unwilling to share. But for now she isn’t fearful or sad, she’s mystified, lost in the beauty, the magic atmosphere. She doesn’t understand what she sees. It has familiar connotations but it makes no sense.

 

Twenty odd years have passed, how could it be? He looks so young, so beautiful, but the exotic setting? What is this?

 

His voice wraps her up and transports her back. Memories emerge and float, and she remembers. She’s a fighter, always has been. The little girl she once was kicks her from the inside, the one who refused to give in.

 

She doesn’t know it yet, but the nightmare is shifting away. For the last few months she has merely survived, now it’s time to live again. She’s alive and fighting. A new energy jolts her, she doesn’t even realise she’s pirouetting around the conservatory.

 

Lost in your time, based in Paris, out now.

All the way to Paris

Natasha may be a fighter but she’s tired. All her life she’s craved affection and recognition. Leaving her abusive childhood behind she found herself in California.

Back in England she eventually marries on the rebound, only she doesn’t realise this at the time. She becomes a mum and finds a new side of her. With her new baby comes along a surge of confidence, instinct guides her.

Her life may not have the “happy ever after” ending found in romances but she’s reasonably happy.

When, after many miscarriages she gives birth to her son, it throws her mummy skills overboard. Time to relearn everything. Just when she thinks she’s got it all together again, she gets pregnant. She’s overjoyed, her husband throws a fit.

Severe illness breaks her, one more ambulance trip and it’s almost over. She survives, but loses her baby and her will to live. For a short moment she wishes she had died too, until two little blonde heads remind her of all the love they need.

So, she fights, she must live, however tired she is of fighting. Just for once, she’d like somebody to come and mother her, look after her.

Until one December afternoon her life takes on another twist, a blast from the past, leading her all the way to Paris.

All writing is personal

 

 

 

 

My humble opinion, of course. When we write, we project our own opinions, our feelings, the way we see the world and in some cases we strip ourselves, sharing our most intimate feelings.

All of this goes to varying degrees but nobody will write the same story, even if given the same bones to play with, unless you bring in the plagiarists…

Today I was the guest on this great blog, yes, I know, novel coming out on the 28th March, time to get talking. Please visit and read my interview and find out how personal my writing really is.I’m sure Melissa would be delighted if you’d leave her a comment.

Thanks again to Melissa, she loves all things written and so do I.
