Spite is just the kind of novel I enjoy reading, combining a murder mystery with confronting characters and tangled relationships. This is my first novel and it took me a few years to complete, writing in between work, family and studies. I love reading and had wondered over the years whether I would be able to write a novel, so one day I started writing a couple of chapters and there they sat for a long time in a lonely folder on my computer. I worried that I would never finish so last year I made a New Year’s Resolution to complete the book before a milestone birthday and I’m so pleased that I did.
And a little about me…
My background as a lawyer certainly helped me with researching some aspects of the book although I have never worked in criminal law. I now also tutor in Law and volunteer with a local community legal service. When I am not teaching, writing or spending time with my family, I love running or walking along the beaches near where I love, painting, blogging and cooking.
I am now working on a second novel and a children’s book and I look forward to sharing them with you. I plan to keep you updated on their progress and let you know when they are released.
In the meantime… I hope to travel more, work less, and continue to write.
