For some time now I have refused to blog. Now I’m eating my words, an apt comment since my first entry has been about using food when writing for a young audience.
I promise anyone who comes across this ramble that I won’t write about what I’m cooking for dinner, or any problems I encounter in the supermarket. However, using a blog seems a great way to talk about the latest book(s) I am working on and what I’m reading. Right now on my bedside table is a pile that includes John le Carre’s latest “Our Kind of Traitor”, that old master still writes very well though he does go on and on, and a collection of long short stories by Daphne Du Maurier “Don’t look now and Other Stories”.
These stories have travelled well, though the final story ‘The Breakthrough’, isn’tr quite as good. Comforting to know that even the best authors can fail. Right now I am working on the last of my culinary murder series “UnFair Coverups” and hopefully all three will soon appear as ebooks.
