So at long last all edits have been done and re check after re check completed..I'm quite sure there are no spelling mistakes but have heard that even the best authors can miss a letter or two...so a couple more days and 'Breathless' will be in the eyes of the reader..a friend asked if I am scared? and I can confidently say not so much any more..it is what it is, hopefully a story that will appeal to its YA audience..and that it will be enough appeal to warrant its sequel 'Out of Darkness' to be read.. Ok so will keep you posted real soon..

As a prolific reader I'd often thought when I was a child that when I grow up I'd like to write like some of my favourite authors..Enid Blyton. Anna Sewel, John Marsden, LM Montgomery, the Bronte sisters etc.. Now of course I have grown up, well nearly..and
I'm still a prolific reader but I no longer want to write like some of my favourite authors.. now the field is too wide to choose from, with new authors evolving year by year and tons of new books to discover like this fantastic example of YA writing.. now I want to write with my own writers voice, hold my own platform and share stories through my own eyes of experience..I can only hope and will be happy if I can write half as good as some of my favs from the past and some of the current writers I most admire...
