FRIDAY 13TH AND A FULL MOON??!!

My new forum friend, Angela Kulig, is having a booksale today, Friday 13th, on http://www.angelakulig.com

As my book, The Golden Horn, is suitably scary enough I’ve put it up for free on there.  I am halfway through a sequel, The Silver Bell, which I am trying to get finished by Midsummer Night, June 20th, for more spook appeal.

I’ve really enjoyed writing my Silver Cross Psychic Detective trilogy so much that it may become a quilogy.  I like making words up, which is why I’ve introduced Wanderlings to the world.  They are not a tennybop boyband from Liverpool but ghosts on stilts, doomed to replay the tragic events of their deaths because they are suffering post-traumatic stress.  Or should that be post-post traumatic stress? 

Anyway, life has a way of imitating art, as they say.  Little did I realise when I started my Silver Cross Psychic Detective series that I would actually be drinkiing the stuff – silver, that is.  When I started suffering from weird symptoms which were coming back as negative from all tests it seemed like the only answer.  So I have my PyraMed Colloidal Silver Generator http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00DI7OA62 and every day I’m having a glug or two of silver water, with the proviso that close friends and family will let me know if I start turning blue.  So hopefully my next post will not be entitled “Blue Moon”. 

Good luck and Good Health to everybody!

The Silver Cross Trilogy

Some people have asked me whether The Silver Cross was based on a real story. It’s about a young girl who uncovers a web of lies, deceit and murder dating from World War II to the present day.

Well, the truth is that I think every author draws on their own life experiences when writing a story. The main character, Lacy, is brought up by a single mum and has no contact with her father. Without going too much into detail, yes, that runs true. 

My mother also has one eye blue and one green, and claims to be psychic. I feel I may have this gift to a degree. I believe we all have this ability but because science can’t explain it, it is classed as ‘paranormal’. I disagree, I think one day we will find a scientific answer, as I do believe the human brain holds a lot more ability than we know.

 When I was a child I was brought up in Battersea, which had been considerably flattened by war time bombing. I can remember seeing the gaps in rows of terraced houses where a house used to be and was now in ruins, not even cleared away. We are talking early 60s here, London was still in ruins from the war even then.   I also witnessed and personally suffered a lot of poverty. I don’t believe Britain has ever fully recovered from two world wars, and I blame politicians completely for this.

Unscrupulous Council officials – yes, an old next door neighbour of mine told me about a well-known one at our local council who during the war profited from repossessing homes of injured and dead people. She, herself, had been a victim of a bombing and was in hospital for six months completely unable to look after her affairs. When she got out her house had been repossessed by the council and nobody had told her.

My own mother was born in a house in Battersea which was bombed out during the war. Although she had married and moved away by then, the house was now demolished and was the site of a massive Council housing block. I looked into what happened re compensation, and have only recently established that my mother’s family did not own their house but rented it. But I do urge everyone to look into their past and find out what really happened during the war because some unethical things definitely occurred.

Moving on to The Golden Horn, my next book, this is also based on fact but it would be a spoiler to go into too much detail. Suffice to say, when we moved out of Battersea to Morden, a suburb of London, a house a few doors down had been bombed in the war. I discovered in the library that a family had died there. And when I was about six years old I started digging in the garden for treasure and I found – well, I can’t tell you that, but the story is in the book.

 Book three, The Silver Bell, is again going to be about finding long lost people, which seems to be a theme of mine. And also about tracing your family tree. I had tried but not got very far, but then some Canadian people with the same surname tracked me down on Facebook. In fact, they had contacted every person on FB with the same surname and asked whether they could be related, and in my case the answer was yes! They already had a long family tree going back to Winton in East Sussex, where an Anglo-Saxon settlement was found dating back to 4AD. The bones are in Lewes Museum. I asked them for DNA testing, which they refused to allow. But I am sure they are my far distant relatives, and one day hope to prove it.
