My journey toward publishing my debut novel

As many of you know, I have always wanted to become a full-time novelist for as far back as I can remember. To walk into a bookshop and see one of my books on the shelf would be incredible.

No great shakes I can hear you say. Maybe not. But for me, it has been a personal crusade that I have been working on for so many years with breaks here and there due to life getting in the way and having to earn a living, raise a family and generally try to keep things going. However, as I head towards retirement (although these days the government in the UK seems to keep moving the retirement age further and further away), I would like nothing more than to hang up the transcription earphones that I use daily as a Legal Secretary and focus entirely on writing novels.

I am awaiting the contract from the publisher who requested the full manuscript of The Mysterious Disappearance of Marsha Boden which is being finalised and I have joined the Society of Authors in anticipation of sending them the contract to read through, as recommended by an author friend of mine.

More exciting news!!!
