|My first book|
I hope you've enjoyed the last few weeks of activity and exploration around my local area and that it has inspired you to look at your environment in a new light.
Autumn is arriving or I guess if you're in the Southern Hemisphere you'll disagree and say it's Spring! I have decided that it is time for a little light reading or time for me to remind you of my books.
Please enjoy learning about them over the next weeks. OR if you're sighing because you've already read them, join Sofia again in November when she will be making her choice of blogs from the archives.
For those of you who ask the question, How long does it take to write a book? It took 3 years to write this one. It was designed with the Millennium in mind. At that time there was much euphoria about the 'good old days' and all that had happened in the twentieth century and I thought it would be a good idea to take a character born on January 1st 1950 who would be celebrating her 50th birthday at the Millennium and create a family saga around her and those 50 years. I created the Stephenson family with Irene Joy born in 1950 and named Irene because the name means 'peace' in Greek. She was a symbol of hope for the future after the first part of the century had seen two World Wars. In addition to the narrative I gave Irene's mother the role of writing a diary but not just a personal one, one which included the social and historical events throughout the 50 years and it interspersed throughout the book in italics.
I will share the synopsis with you.
