SPRING NEWSLETTER, NZ November 2020
Updated: Nov 14
It is still Spring here and we have been enjoying summer weather. The birds and flowers are busy and probably confused.
I spend most of my free time (which isn't much) in my garden tending my vege garden, flowers and fruit trees. There's a heap of work to do, but we are reward with delicious fruit and fresh vegetables.
Writing is a great way to escape into another world, away from the madness I seen on the news each night on TV, and a troubled world .
Just as a reader might find oblivion in a book, so can a writer. We are able to invent our own world. If we write about sweet romance, that, too is an escape for many people. I Currently pen crime mysteries, but they also can have positive endings and give a sense of satisfaction when the "badies" are caught and justice is served, or redemption and forgiveness are offered to an undeserving felon.
My aim is to entertain, encourage and educate others about the themes in my novels. I know that I have served my purpose when I receive comments on social media or uplifting reviews.
Please take the time to write a review after you've read my books, as this is how I learn whether I'm hitting the mark or not. I also appreciate the encouragement.
Did you know that Book Depository will ship your books worldwide for free?
They often have sales promotions for my books.

I published three books in lockdown during the winter- two novels and my first children's book. The new standalone series I am currently writing called Ann Grieves Mysteries is going well. The first in the series, Murder In The Band Room is on sale in Ebook and Paperback format from online retailers. You will find these in my Bookstore. The second book in the series is in its final stages of preparation and will be released this month.
Last Ferry To Gulf Harbour has also been a joy to write. I have found it as entertaining as I would reading another author's book to my liking.
