Are you adopted, an adoptive parent or a birth parent? Research needed for novel.

As research for my next novel I would like to interview people who are either adopted and have sought out their birth families, or are a birth mother or father who has been contacted by an adopted child. I am particularly interested in the family and relationship dynamics and how these change after the initial contact has been made.

Of course, anything you tell me will be treated with confidentiality.

Contact me either through this site or at http://www.laberrynovels.org.

London Book Fair

After years of writing, editing, and living Silencio, it was incredible to see my novel on the stand at London Book Fair 2016. The fair is an industry event and some authors find it difficult to enjoy however I love everything about books and so the business side also interests me. Well-known writers including Marian Keyes, Jeffery Archer, Meg Roscoff participated in interviews but the most impressive was Judith Kerr, in her 90’s and as sharp as a youngster. As usual, there were interesting presentations at the Writer’s Centre which included advice about public relations, marketing, self-publishing through different forums and how to beat the slush pile.

I have returned to my office ready to write.
