I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!

  1. Hullo Lainie dear,
    I finished your book yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it! The sudden twist at the end took me by surprise. I enjoyed your turn of phrase. e.g. The empty hat at his feet demanded attention. That sort of thing.
    You painted a Venice which placed me there again and had me wishing I’d done more when I visited back in the early 70’s.
    Looking forward to your next book!

    • Thanks so much Jenny! Glad you enjoyed it! May I ask a favour please? Would you go back to the ‘order’ site and write a review? It helps to have some opinions and reviews for prospective buyers! 🙂 May help to sell a few more. Thanks love. We must get together soon!
