The Liberty Bodice first paragraph

As I lie on this cold, hard, wooden bunk in this Goddam place known as the Dachau concentration camp, I wonder is it the end for me?
I think I am about to die.
I look up to the roof, and through an open hole I see a glimmer of hope in the opalescent predawn light. The shards came streaking in as the sun begins to rise and glimpses through the passing clouds. Another day dawns.

My bike ride.

I have to tell you that I had a granddaughter cycling with me today. She was unused to riding on the road. In an attempt to make sure she was safe on the inside of me and before we had even set off, I went flying and fell over onto her, she tried to support me in the upright position but failed.

I now have a bruise half way up the right leg from the ankle. A massive cut on the left,and a scraped elbow and now feel thoroughly miserable. Have to say though that the glass or two of wine consumed at the B.B.Q.is helping.

My new novel.

Good afternoon,

Not long now before my new novel will be published.
It's called The Liberty Bodice and I think you may well find it an exciting read.
It has the lot; drama, war, poverty, romance and for those who are Francophiles, plenty to interest you.
I hope to have it produced as an eread as well as a paperback.

Speak again soon.

Cycle ride.

Last Sunday I cycled 10miles for charities. The two chosen were The local Hospices and Help for Heroes.
I am delighted to say that I have made over £ioo in sponsorship.

I haven't been in for a while, that's because I am desperately trying to finish my new novel,
 The Liberty Bodice.
It's been proof read and edited and I am just making the recommended changes.
I do hope you will enjoy it.
The story meanders through two young girls lives being brought up in Ireland. When Gloria, our protagonist reaches maturity, she realises her ability to grasp foreign languages. This opens doors to work within the Special Operations Executive.[S.O.E].
Her trials and tribulations during W.W. 2 make remarkable reading, especially after she is captured and sent to Dachau concentration camp.
