This is my very first blog, I have always wanted to start writing one and now seems the perfect time as my first book "PUTTING RIGHT THE PAST" is due to be published on the 1st April.  The book is something I have really enjoyed writing and in the next few blogs I will cover:

1. How I was able to write the book

2. Where the story started
3. The characters and the plot
4. Trying to get the book published
5. Editing, proof reading and the cover
6. Finally seeing it in print.

As well as my book, I will blog about books I have loved to read, some of which go back 20 years.  There will be some recent ones thrown in as well.  I have quite a strange reading habit so I'm told; the thing is I remember the days when we had SUNDAY BEST clothes, and I carry this over into my reading. There are certain books I won't read until a special time, holidays and being in special places; I will explain all later.

I also want to tell you about the things I like and dislike; the people and situations that get my back up.  Plus there might be a bit about my addiction to the odd telly programme or magazine.  Not forgetting the dozens of blogs I read.  Well that's it for now, if you'd like to read a bit about "PUTTING RIGHT THE PAST" , please don't hesitate to visit my book page on this site. On my next blog I will explain how I came to be in the position to write my book.
