Over the last few months, my wife Amanda and I have been deeply engrossed in the completion of our first novel as co-authors.
It is titled: The Emerald Slippers of Oz and was originally an idea of my wife, who had expressed an interest in writing.
When we first met 30 years ago, she dabbled in poetry and I had always encouraged her to write more and express herself.
30 years later, she finally took my advice and came up with a wonderful idea for a very nice storyline. Why did it take her 30 years? Well, there's 5 kids to raise, 14 grandkids and dealing with my idiosyncracies.
Finally, we have completed the writing and I now throw myself into the editing, proof-reading and formatting needed to make this book a reality.
Over the next few weeks, I'll be posting loads of info on aspects of the process and decisions taken to make this book uniquely ours.
Look for an official release on the Summer Solstice!
