Do Middle-Aged Woman Become Invisible? Guest interview Toni Kief — A Little Bit of Blake

These are two of my favourite writers! I couldn’t reisist reblogging this absolutely great interview. In  parts it made me laugh because Toni Kief is a great character, she often cheers me up with her posts, comments and writing.

Julia Blake, is a very gifted writer and she has just started this new blog. Previously she wrote Facebook posts with acompanying photos. When I saw she had posted, I always wanted to read what she had to say because it I knew it would be entertaining. Now I’m thrilled she has started blogging properly. So do go over and follow her as you will enjoy what she has to say.

I’ve also read some of her books, they are clever and all different. You can see the reviews on Karen Book Buzz Blog.

Lost and Found
Lifesong
Fixtures and Fittings

Gosh, its not until I’ve listed them I’ve realised how many I’ve read. My favourite? It has to be Lost and Found closely followed by Fixture and Fittings, or maybe the other way round!

Do women become invisible as they get older? That is certainly the opinion of this week’s guest the fabulously funny author, Toni Kief. Author of five independently published books, she made a conscious decision to have her heroines buck the trend and consequently they are smart, opinionated, determined and are definitely what would be termed […]

Be sure to follow Julia’s blog and read this fascinating interview.

Hazard, a Nineties Song

Do you remember Richard Marx’s Hazard ? I loved it and the video was dark and moody and told a story. The music is haunting and shot in black and white makes it very atmospheric.

Who did kill Miss Mary? We never got to find out and so, inspired by the video, I wrote a story.

Mary became Mary-Jo and it is told through the eyes of her best friend, Shelby. She, like her father, she had visions and when she ‘saw’ her friend was in trouble, she had to return to the town she’d left behind.

The first person she turns to is Mary-Jo’s boyfriend, Ricky, named after Richard Marx, of course. But he doesn’t know what happened to Mary-Jo and why she is missing. They had had a row, so he is not looking for her. He is broody and angry and it takes a while for Shelby to discover why.

Then there is the sheriff, Rawden Hughes, who Shelby has a history with. She is not so delighted to see him again, but knew it was inevitable.

Then there is her Pa, strangely sober for once, what is he hiding? Why does he accuse her like he does?

Long buried secrets surface and a recent review called it a thriller of a tale. I’d call it a crime, and a mystery, with a little paranormal thrown in.  I would love to hear what you think.

Down by the River is novelette and available on Amazon UK and Amazon US for just £1/$1.
