I have spent my whole life trying to make a difference. I dont know if I have succeeded at this though! I taught for over 20 years and coached girls and womens basketball for more than thirty years. I wanted to see people become the best they could be and not have to pay the earth to do it. So I fund raised and fund raised and was quite successful in bringing money into the basketball club I established in 1992. Once my involvement ended in 2012 I wanted to do what I had always promised myself. I started to write and since 2012 I have written over 750,000 words. They might not always be the best words or in the right order. They may not always make sense, but it has made me very happy to be able to put pen to paper.
So far I have written 6 novels and today came an offer from a publisher to print "Blasphemous Rumours". Trouble was that I had to pay them £2600 for the privilege!
So if I self publish I can do this for £795 and maybe get my foot on the ladder and make my fortune,
I live in hope!
I have used my experiences in teaching and basketball coaching and life, to write about two girls who fall in love, have problems at school and live a relatively normal life. One, Poppy, however self harms and is very much supported by her girlfriend Maelys. A French name as will be explained in the story!
Maelys also plays basketball and fights for her friend and for what she sees as Right.
I must point out that none of the characters are based on anyone i know and any coincidence is coincidence!
