This week’s question is as follows:

What do you want readers to take away from your work when they read it?

Well, it depends on which genre I’m writing in.  If it’s a humorous novel like ‘No Sex Please, I’m Menopausal!’ or ‘The Pilates Class’, then I hope the reader will feel uplifted in a ‘feel-good’ fashion.

If it’s a suspenseful novel like A House Without Windows or For the Sake of a Child, I hope the reader can immerse themselves in the story enough to identify and sympathise with the main protagonists, not just while reading the book, but for a while afterwards as well.  These two novels give out subtle messages, and if the reader picks up on them, then all to the good.

Then there are my women’s fiction family dramas, Repent at Leisure, Revenge, The Donor, and The Daughter-in-law Syndrome, detailing jealousies, tragedies and events which could happen in any family and may have even happened to the reader themselves.  Maybe the reader could learn how to deal with their own family crisis or situation by reading any one of these books.


Learn more about my life through reading A Rather Unusual Romance, partly true, and my new memoir now on pre-order, Waiting in the Wings, which is all true.  Both are written from the heart!  A Rather Unusual Romance is discounted on Kindle Countdown today and until 30th October by the way…
