For a writer, any new experience creates memories and feelings which can be used in a story.

In Two Tonnes of Sisu, I dealt with child abuse – using my own traumatic childhood, the terrifying stories from my students, and my on-line buddies.

I confess, I hated writing that story – it felt too real, too horrible, and I wished, as I wrote every word, that abuse in any form, could be overcome forever so that no one would ever suffer again.

Over this past winter, I was trapped at home several times, sometimes for weeks due to snow storms. So I wrote another book. At the time, I felt quite mystified why I would be “asked” to write such an unhappy story. (see my page, I’m just the Typist)

And then the pandemic hit. And suddenly, Recycled Blues made sense. I wrote Part Two during the snowstorms, and Part One, weeks later.

Recycled Blues tells the tale of one possible future. I truly hope it helps, in whatever small way, to stop us from making more bad choices. We are critical in so many ways, right now, this moment.

Every choice we make will determine whether we, along with the entire ecosystem, will even survive.

¬†Recycled Blues will be published in the immediate future. I’ll keep you posted.

HAPPY to be HOME again!

We are having beautiful fall weather with lots of sunshine and not too warm. Hope you are enjoying life wherever you are.

Now that I am home – I want to promote my new book. Two Tonnes of Sisu deals with stopping bullies and abuse at home. Just like life, there are good times and bad times. My characters work hard to make their lives better, and help those around them.

It’s a good story to start thinking about the tough issue of abuse in all its ugly forms, what makes a home, and what rules we need to live together in harmony.

Remember amazon.com has FREE downloads so you can read my story on any of your mobile devices.
