Milestone

I published my third Molly Fraser Mystery in March (ebook) and April (print): Malice Afoot. I consider this a significant milestone as I can now call this a series.

Why are you proud?

I feel now, with three mystery novels and one short story published, I achieved the right to call myself an author. More books coming…

What have you learned?

Perseverance in writing, and getting good advice on how to independently publish and market my books.

Milestone

My first contemporary biography was published in February and I am currently running around the country doing events in a book tour in conjunction with the charity which commissioned it.

Why are you proud?

It was my first ever commissioned work, and as a new direction for my writing was a huge challenge, including undertaking a research trip to Angola, during which I caught malaria, and in addition had to be written to a tight time scale – not my usual forte!

What have you learned?

That it is possible to push yourself to achieve new goals, to have the courage to step outside of your comfort zone, and that deadlines can be very positive!
