WORK IN PROGRESS
Two contemporary novels featuring muted dramas and family tensions.
The first, working title: Speechless
When the young daughter of a comfortably placed family stops speaking, everything is up for examination within the family. Nothing is taken for granted any more. What does it take for such a fortunate family to be torn apart — and can the relationships recover?
The first draft of this novel was ranking no.13 (out of c. 5,000) when Harper Collins discontinued their writers’ site, Authonomy.
The second: COMPLETED – almost!
Working title: The Parody
I’m changing both title and cover: awaiting something much better
The Pandora’s Box, once opened, plunges him into increasingly bizarre situations. Is prosaic Barry actually more quirky than imagined, or merely a parody of his successful twin? Can he work through the chaos he’s engendered and emerge with some kind of honour? And what has Gudrun been up to?This cover is the designer’s first suggestion. Not at all right: the cover is definitely a work in progress!
