The Liberty Bodice

Gosh,I think it won't be long before it is published. I'm talking of my second novel 'The Liberty Bodice' I had to find an artist for the book cover, back page and bio with photo. That is now finished and has been sent to my publisher at Wolf Paw, U.S.A. It has taken so much longer that I ever thought it would. I'm very excited about this book, my second novel, as I believe it will have considerable appeal to those readers who enjoy WW2 stories. And when they involve such heroines as Gloria, whose amazing tenacity, bravery and courage is an example to us all,it makes the book even more enjoyable. The story tells about a young woman who joins the S.O.E.[Special Operations Executive]a group of agents who became known as Churchill's secret army. Only 39 women were accepted for the rigorous training. Thereafter facing tremendous hardship as they fought alongside the French résistance agents in occupied France. Many factual events are documented, the S.O.E. being one of them. Those of us who lived during those war years or soon after, can identify with the story. I well recall my parents telling me many tales of 'What happened during the war.'

We are home again.

Good afternoon to you. After an amazing short break in the lowlands of bonny Scotland, where the Arctic bloom was in full force, home we came. To be honest with you, the Arctic bloom followed us to the sunny South. At the risk of being called a SOFT SACENACH,I really don't understand our weather. Only 3 weeks back we were in summer clothes and taking day trips to zoos with the grand children. Enough of that, it's only 10 days before I finally leave my workplace for good. I will have worked for the same Trust for the last 49 years and 5 months. That took a bit of doing. Will have more time to write/blog then. May the FORTH be with you.
