JAN HAWKE

It’s my great pleasure to welcome accomplished writer JAN HAWKE to my blogspot. Jan is a very open and honest person, as I discovered as soon as I clicked on her Facebook page – http://on.fb.me/1Sy2MXI – liked it (please do the same if you haven’t already!) and was drawn to her blog: Jan Hawke INKorporated. I’ll let her explain it, because I think that like me you will feel you know something important about her, having read it. INKorporating? “So what’s behind the title – what does Jan Hawke INKorporate? Well of course it’s a play on a word which...

LESLEY HAYES

I am a great admirer of the work of LESLEY HAYES (sometimes known as Lesley Sky). I had an instant rapport with her writing, as indeed she had with mine: which made ideal ground for a reliable writerly friendship! When I recently decided to create this section of my blog, she was the first to spring to mind. Lesley Hayes was born in Deptford, in South East London, in 1948, and started writing almost as soon as she could talk. Her first story was published when she won a literary competition at the age of 13. Between 1966 and 1992...

JAN SIKES

My “work” as a writer involves me in reading and reviewing many books; and in so doing I get to ‘know’ their authors in a manner of speaking. We will probably never meet in person, but there is a meeting of minds: a recognition of the quality of each other’s work and an appreciation of the challenges and rewards of following this path we have chosen to follow. So a bit like Chaucer’s pilgrims, we tell each other stories along the way, and do our best to make each other’s journey more pleasurable. For that reason, it is my great...

JOY NWOSU LO-BAMIJOKO

I am delighted to be highlighting Joy’s work on my blogspot. I had the pleasure a little while ago of reading her book Mirror of our Lives: Voices of Four Igbo Women and I posted a five star review of it. Some stories have a power that resides in the story itself, regardless of the artistry with which it happens to be told. This is one such: a story that opens our eyes and hearts and broadens our minds. In an unsensational, matter-of-fact way, Dr Lo-Bamijoko describes the burdens carried by four different women born and raised according to Igbo...

MICHELLE ABBOTT

It’s high time my blog was turned on to the power of love and romance (with just a hint of lubricity here and there to spice things up): so I am delighted today to welcome MICHELLE ABBOTT to these pages. A fellow Brit, Michelle is a skilled purveyor of tales in the Romance genre, having dedicated her writing career to date to bringing as much love into as many lives as possible. I’ve been spending a lot of time in Fairyland of late, and confess to not having learned much as yet about the kind of men who turn her...

BRIAN O’HARE

Before Brian O’Hare retired, he was Assistant Director of the Southern Regional College in Northern Ireland. He attended the University of Ulster, obtaining both an MA. and a Ph.D, and he has lived in Newry, Northern Ireland, all his life. He is married with three children, ten grandchildren, and one great grandchild. He plays golf three times a week off a ten handicap and does a lot of voluntary work. Any writing he did in his professional life was academic – very much restricted to a very specific readership. Several articles in educational journals were followed by a number of...

MAURICE G. MILLER

It is with great pleasure that I welcome acclaimed author MAURICE G MILLER to my BlogSpot. I have recently downloaded The Budapest Experiment on the strength of its opening paragraphs. It seems to be a terrific read, and I am looking forward to reviewing it.  I really hope that after reading his blog you will do the same (if you haven’t done so already). Over to Maurice... I thought I would take this opportunity to acquaint you with some of the main characters that you will encounter when reading The Budapest Experiment. I hope you find them as interesting as...

SHERILYN POWERS

I’m delighted to be bringing Sherilyn Powers to your particular attention because she is a very interesting and supportive person. She has been a writer ever since she learned to write, and certainly throughout adulthood: poetry, novels, blogs and articles; but when it comes to communicating with and inspiring others, she doesn’t just confine herself to the written word. She is a facilitator and enabler: working with company VPs and CEOs, office staff and field workers on a variety of health topics and safety issues. Her interest in health and body work began many years ago. It was sparked by...
