Interview with Marianne in 2002 from Meeting Lydia. Audiobook

Welcome Marianne and a huge thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. Tell us a little about yourself. And what you are doing right now?

I teach psychology in a sixth-form college. I’ve one daughter, Holly, who’s at university, and I live in Beckenham, south-east London, with my husband Johnny. I enjoy reading what Johnny calls ‘trashy fiction’ – so I do so in secret and keep the books hidden under cushions or under the sofa. I also like classics and modern contemporary fiction so I read this when we’re in bed. I like to play tennis with my friend Taryn and I enjoy cooking – but panic if I have to feed more than four people. I am also interested in science and environmental issues.

How did you end up looking for friends online? What pushed you that far?

When Friends Reunited hit the headlines last year, I was very excited. It was the first real opportunity to find people from the past. My daughter introduced me to it and it gives me something to do now she’s left the nest during term times. My generation has become quite obsessed with writing to classmates to find out what they are up to.

How does it feel to be talking to another man who isn’t your husband? Does he give you something in your life you feel like you’re missing?

I had been happily married for twenty-odd years but last year my husband became ‘close’ – shall we say – to a colleague at work. ‘Charmaine’, she’s called. All blonde hair and curves. And she’s a lot younger than me. He says there’s nothing going on, but I’m suspicious of her motives and I get jealous. Emailing Edward distracts me from my worries. I had a crush on him when we were about ten – but I wouldn’t dream of telling him!

What are your deepest fears about your relationship?

That Johnny and I will never get back to where we were before Charmaine came into our lives. Or that there really is something going on between them and he will leave me. I never used to feel this way. It’s an age thing. Peri-menopause has made me feel vulnerable.

If you could swap places with a fellow person you are with or have met, who would it be? And why?

I wouldn’t want to swap with anyone. Not even the rich and famous. No one has a perfect life. We all have issues and difficult people to deal with. But I understand my issues and I can’t imagine having to start again with those belonging to someone else. If I could swap for a day only, I’d like to see what it’s like to be a man – to try to understand better what really goes on in their heads. My husband Johnny would be an interesting subject!

What do you believe your main purpose is? And how far will you go to achieve it?

When I was young, I wanted to change the world. As a teacher, you have a chance to do that via others. And psychology is a subject very relevant to people’s lives. I’d like to write a novel about the long-term effects of school bullying – but I’m not sure if I have the staying power to complete it.

Could you describe your husband in three words?

Intelligent, charming, sexy.

If you could have one wish right now what would it be and how would it help your current situation?

I wish I could wave a wand and cause Charmaine to disappear. Take her out of Johnny’s life and I’m sure we would find a way to resolve our problems.

Thank you, Marianne, for taking part in this interview. It has been a pleasure getting to know you.

Interview with Marianne in 2017 from Meeting Lydia audiobook (Spoiler Alert: for people who haven’t read either The Alone Alternative or The Man in the Needlecord Jacket)  

Interview with Marianne in 2017

Welcome Marianne and a huge thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

Tell us a little about yourself. And what you are doing right now?

I’m a retired teacher of psychology and am currently an independent author with one novel published – Lydia – and another WIP. I have one daughter, Holly, and I live in the West Country with Edward, my second husband.

What are your deepest fears about your relationship?

That one of us will be seriously ill before we have had time to enjoy fully our life together.

What do you believe your main purpose is? And how far will you go to achieve it?

I want to make a difference. I expect most people feel that way. As a teacher, you have a chance to do that via others. Since I retired, I’m trying to spread a message of environmental sustainability. I also like to think that people who read my novel will finish it knowing things or understanding things that they didn’t know before. And I hope it may help them to deal with any long-term effects of school bullying.

Could you describe your husband in three words?

Clever, dedicated, kind.

Have you done anything unforgivable to someone else? Was it out of love or revenge? Tell us about it.

I’m slow to forgive. I was slow to forgive my first husband Johnny when I thought he was having an affair with a colleague. Had I known that he would die so relatively young, I would have tried to patch things up sooner. I regret the time wasted on doubt and the rows we had.

What has been your favourite memory in your life so far?

After my husband died, I never thought I would find true happiness again with anyone else. I had lost touch with Edward and didn’t know his own circumstances had changed too. When he found me again, I was at first so frightened of being hurt that I kept pushing him away. But when I decided to let him back into my life and we met again outside Beckenham Junction station, my heart woke up from its sleep and I remember in that instant feeling like a teenager all over again. That night when I went to bed – alone, I hasten to add – I wept with joy for being allowed to experience romantic love again.

If you could have one wish right now what would it be and how would it help your current situation?

I wish for time to enjoy my second chance of love unencumbered by a hovering ex-wife. I wouldn’t wish anything bad to happen to her. It’s not that we don’t get on. But she’s always there in the background and I think she’s lonely. Edward feels obligated to help her. I don’t doubt him, but it makes me less secure.

Thank you, Marianne, for taking part in this interview. It has been a pleasure getting to know you.

My Review of The Adventures of Shifting Jack: New Friends By Denise Ersalahi Erguler.

My Review of

The Adventures of Shifting Jack: New Friends

By Denise Ersalahi Erguler.

I really enjoyed The Adventures of Shifting Jack: New Friends. I loved the closeness of Jack and Lilly and how they protect each other. I also thought the new way in this book Lilly could shape shift was really captivating and gave this story a very important meaning.

The story itself follows Lilly and her mum as they welcome new neighbours and bake cakes for them. All seem well until Jack and Lilly were offered by Mr Gardener to take a boat ride with him. However, while on the water Lilly falls in and her life jacket slips off. The protector Jack too goes in after her. But will Lilly’s time under the water teach her more about herself than she knows? Read this book to find out.

I love the characters in this story as they are all captivating and magical in their own ways,  especially when they transform into their animal selves. I also like that they try to save the plants and animals of nature and band together when needed. For Lilly and Jack, it’s not always easy as they live among none shifters and have to be careful who they can trust.

I think Denise did an amazing job with the message behind this book. Not only about friendship and looking after each other, but also looking after natures planet and wildlife so they won’t die or get sick. I thought this was very relevant for this day and age.

This book is perfect for YA readers and adults alike because it has great characters of all ages as well as lots of action throughout the storyline within an enchanting world, in which animals can talk and people can change into wolf, bears, birds and sea life.

I would recommend this book if you like stories with magical creatures and human bonds that will leave you with a warm glow in your heart. Don’t wait to get your copy of The Adventures of Shifting Jack: New Friends…

My Review of A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen.The Amazing True Story of One Man And His Cat.  

My Review of

A Street Cat Named Bob by James Bowen.

The Amazing True Story of One Man And His Cat.

My lovely boyfriend sent me the book: A Street Cat Named Bob. I found this true story inspiring and captivating and hard to put down. James Bowen is a man who has faced hard times on the streets of London, but all that changes when he meets his companion, a ginger cat named Bob. This book was full of emotion and showed what friendship can do for a person.

The story itself follows James Bowen as he enters a drug rehabilitation program. He’s been moved off the street and now has a small flat of his own. However, one day while heading home with his friend Belle he comes across a ginger cat laying on the doormat of someone’s flat. Soon James finds that the ginger cat is homeless and so he takes him in temporarily. But the ginger cat-whom James called Bob had other ideas. Will Bob stick around forever? Follow the life adventures of James and Bob in this book.

I loved the quote about chance in this book. James had had chances just like any other, but it takes courage and a change of purpose to make a chance work. Bob was that purpose for James. Ever since Bob became a part of his family he helped James first by giving him trust and company on the streets while James was selling: The Big Issue or basking with his guitar. 

It also struck me while James had been without Bob he’d been invisible. No one talked to him or treated him with kindness. But Bob made him visible again, he brought people to him with his enchanting ways and by doing so Bob opened conversation for James and others to know each other however brief that may be. Bob also opened the hearts of passersby and soon they were showing the kind side of humanity.  In some ways there is a lesson in this book- if we all see each other as equal then maybe we’d all get a chance to show our hearts, even to a stranger.

I also liked how James recounted his time on the streets and how hard it is for someone to live homeless and the hardship of being around all different people who are homeless and having problems with drug and alcohol etc… Also that how horrible it feels to have others’ look at you like you’re nothing.

I found this book to be emotional and touching, inspiring and thought-provoking all at the same time. So if you want to read a true story that will leave you with warmth in your heart and an understanding on how an unconditional love can change a person’s life for the better then you must surely try A Street Cat Named Bob.

Welcome Guest Anne Allen Talking About Her New Novel The Betrayal.

The Betrayal by Anne Allen

Thanks, Katie, for inviting me onto your lovely blog to talk about my latest book, ‘The Betrayal’. This is the 6th in my series, The Guernsey Novels, and like the 5th, ‘Echoes of Time’, is dual-time, with chapters set during WWII and the present day. The events I describe during the Occupation are based on fact, but the characters are fictional.

Leo Bichard is a prominent businessman whose French grandmother was a Jew, although both his parents were Christians. His family have never mentioned their ancestry but, unfortunately for Leo, someone tells the Germans, and he is deported with other Jews to concentration camps and does not return. This actually happened to the few Jews in Guernsey and is considered a shameful blot on the island’s history. The local government was unable to resist the demands of the German invaders in this instance, and my story was inspired by this event. Oh, and another inspiration was Renoir. He spent the summer of 1883 in Guernsey painting numerous versions of a particular bay, Muelin Huet, amongst others. At least one of these paintings is in a museum.

Leo sends his beloved wife and child to England a matter of days before the Germans arrive and he stays to defend his property and stand alongside his fellow islanders. However, the Germans soon impose severe restrictions on the population and Leo is forced to close his business and months later his house is taken over by soldiers and he is forced to live in his housekeeper’s small cottage.

When Teresa, his wife, returns after the war, she finds her home wrecked and the family’s valuables, including an extensive art collection, missing. One of those was a treasured family painting by Renoir. Learning she is a widow, she returns heartbroken to live with her family in England.

In 2010 Nigel and his twin Fiona, locals who have lived in London since university, return to Guernsey and buy a long-established antiques shop. A year later, during a refit, they find a hidden stash of paintings, including what appears to be a Renoir. Days later, Fiona finds Nigel dead, an apparent suicide. Refusing to accept the verdict, a distraught Fiona employs a detective to help her discover the truth.

Searching for the true owner of the painting brings Fiona close to someone who helps to heal her broken heart. But there are important questions to answer before she can lay her brother’s ghost to rest —

Who betrayed Leo? Who knew about the stolen Renoir? And are they prepared to kill – again?

The kindle book is open for pre-order NOW and is published on Friday 20th October. The launch price is £1.99 and will increase to £2.99 from 22nd October. All the previous titles are on a promotion at 99p from 18th -22nd October. Bargains! The paperback will be out at the end of October.

Today I’m Incredibly Excited to be Interviewing Elizabeth Jane Corbett Author of The Tides Between.

Welcome Elizabeth Jane please tell us a little about yourself and your book.

 Thanks heaps for the welcome. What can I say? I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a librarian, a Welsh speaker, a dog owner and a commuter cyclist who loves reading quirky character driven novels set once-upon-a-time in lands far away. My debut novel, The Tides Between, is an historical coming-of-age novel about fairy-tales and facing the truth. Set in the steerage compartment of a nineteenth century emigrant vessel, it involves elements of magic and storytelling.

What inspired you to create The Tides Between?

 It started with a mid-life crisis. On reaching a significant mile-stone (let’s not be specific), I realised I’d always wanted to write a novel. Close on the heels of this realisation came a sense that I’d better make a start before it was too late. The reason I’d never started was partly due to the above-mentioned roles, but also because I didn’t think I had any ideas. But I’d always been interested in the historical character of Caroline Chisholm – the emigrant’s friend. I started by with a biography of her life then broadened my research to include nineteenth century immigration in general. By which stage, to my immense surprise, I had characters forming in my head.

What is your writing routine? are you a pantster or planner?

I started The Tides Between with absolutely no consideration of viewpoint, story structure, or character arcs. I simply gave myself permission to write. Once I had a dreadful first draft, I went back and learned what I was supposed to know before starting. This led to a great deal of re-writing. With my current work in progress, Stone Promises, I have a fair idea of these elements and I am writing towards my major plot turning points. In between, I am fumbling my way in the dark, a process I find both terrifying and exhilarating, depending on how the day is going. I start my writing day by journaling, long hand, in my pyjamas. That is how I set my goals for the day. I revert to this whenever I get stuck (the journaling, that is, not the pyjamas). It relieves the pressure and enables me to work out what I am trying to say.

Did you have a favourite place you like to write, while you were creating your novel?

I started writing in our bedroom at an old desk we’d picked up off the side of the road. We had four kids living at home at the time so space was at a premium. The kids have long since moved out and we have downsized. I now use the spare bedroom as my office. When writing, I sit, door closed, in silence. But I journal, read articles, plot and draw diagrams out at the dining table.

Describe what your Muse looks like to you in three words.

Coch calon, Cymraes – red, heart, Welshwoman.

I love the colour red, I write from the heart and my muse is rooted in my heritage.

What part of writing your novel did you most enjoy? E.g. First draft, research, editing…

I love that heady moment when your characters first start to speak. But I find it mighty scary sitting down to a blank page. Yet sometimes at the end of the day I feel a warm glow of satisfaction at what I have accomplished. This is often doused when I workshop the piece. But, once I sit with the feedback and see possibilities, I am generally excited to make improvements. So, it’s a roller coaster for me – both hard and exciting.

If you could be one of your characters, which one would you be and why?

None, I make them suffer too much. Bridie, my protagonist in The Tides Between is fifteen with so much to learn. I am glad I don’t have to go through that stage of life again. Rhys and Siȃn are Welsh. I’d certainly like their language fluency. But my novel is about facing the truth and Rhys’ arc involves elements of tragedy. Alf, Bridie’s stepfather, is solid and reliable. I admire people like that. But I am not one of them. One of the glories of mid-life is being happy in my own skin. So, I’ll leave my characters on the page, if that’s okay. Though, having said that, I’ll admit, I’ve learned many of their life lessons first-hand.

Which character did you like writing about the most? Why?

I found Bridie fun to write. She has a quirky turn of mind. She is also sad and angry and aching to work things out. I remember that feeling. I’ll admit, I fell a little in love with Rhys. He tells a number of Welsh fairy tales during the voyage and I enjoyed being in his storytelling voice. I took Welsh classes as part of my research, only ever intending to complete a term or two. But I fell in love with the language and kept going. I let that wide-eyed wonder infuse my characters. So, I think that is my answer has to be Rhys. Which in turn fuels Bride’s response.

What’s your favourite subject to write about? Why?

I am attracted to fairy-tales and like to explore the intersection of mythology and psychology. At this stage, I can’t imagine writing a non-historical novel, or one without a Welsh character. My newly re-discovered cultural heritage is so rich and deep. My muse has a wonderful canvas to work upon.

If you could describe your main character in three words what would they be? 

Fun, feisty and flawed.

What is the darkest thing any of your characters have ever done?

My characters’ darkest acts are those of ordinary life – fear, resentment, an unwillingness to listen, holding onto false beliefs. The novel begins with Bridie disobeying her mother and stepfather by smuggling a forbidden notebook onto their emigrant ship. At that point, Rhys’s secret fears are also threatening to overwhelm him. It sounds dark but I think the fairy tales enable me to explore that darkness in a way that is gentle and universal. But time will tell what the ‘real’ readers think.

What is your character favourite fairytale? Why that one? Does it help her in anyway?

Tamlane – the handsome youth captured by the Queen of Elfland and the brave maiden who rescued him. Rhys likes Llyn y Fan Fach, though I suspect he’s changed his mind by the end of the voyage.

Does any of your characters have any strong beliefs or fears if so what are they? 

Bridie and Rhys both have difficult truths to face. However, to in order to do so, they have to let go of false beliefs. I won’t elaborate on the details as it will spoil the build of the story. Suffice to say, both will be forced to a resolution by the end of the voyage.

Who are your favourite Authors?

Sharon K Penman, Edith Pargetter/Ellis Peters, Dorothy Dunnett, Kate Forsyth, Kate Morton, Emma Donoghue, L.M Montgomery, C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers, Diana Gabaldon. I also loved Richard Llywellyn’s, How Green was my Valley, and Margaret Mitchell’s, Gone with the Wind.

What was the best advice you’ve ever had while writing your novels?

Alison Goodman, my first manuscript assessor, said: take your time, learn your craft. Euan Mitchell’s logical approach to story structure set me on the right path. My friend Leisl Leighton said: don’t wait until you have a contract, start building your social media presence now. Veronica, a visual artist friend, has been a great mentor. She reminded me to focus on the work, not the outcome. Carole Lovekin reinforced this, by telling me: the writing is the cake. Being published is merely the icing.

What projects are you working on next?

I lived in Wales for some months during 2015/16. While there, I noticed a number of memorials to Owain Glyn Dŵr. Glyn Dŵr rose in rebellion against the English crown in 1400 and was, consequently, the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales. At some point, I realised he’d had a wife. Though to my knowledge there are no stones erected in her memory. Mared, her name was (Margaret). She ended up in the Tower of London. I thought: what would it have been like to be that woman? The idea for a novel was born. I have done the preliminary research and started drafting. My working title is, Stone Promises.

Do you have any advice for fellow writers who maybe undertaking creating their first novel at this very moment?

Write despite the fear, learn as much as you can, look for feedback, and take it on board. Try above all, to enjoy the journey. It is the creation that matters, not the outcome. As far as I can tell, no one finds the process easy. Sometimes, success is simply a matter of staying the course.

Any final words you would like to add?

Thanks so much for this opportunity. Drop in at elizabethjanecorbett.com.au and say hello. I’d love to hear what you think of the novel.

Thank you Elizabeth Jane Corbett for taking time to do this blog interview, it has been a real pleasure to hear about your novel, I wish you well with your novel and all other writing projects you may undertake in the future.

Happy weekend all! I hope you’re all well and enjoying October-the falling leafs and the early nights to cuddle up with a good book and go off to magical lands. I like this time of year as it has always helped me write and read more.

Well, very recently I attended a writers and readers Facebook party, where I had the pleasure of listening to the lovely author, Audrina Lane, read a chapter of her book Where Did your Heart go? It sounded like an amazing book that I’m now reading and enjoying very much. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Where-your-heart-Heart-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B00E0KDRQU/ref=sr_1_1?s=kids&ie=UTF8&qid=1508000690&sr=8-1&keywords=Where+Did+your+Heart+go%3F+
