AN INTERESTING CREATURE!


Over the last twelve months three people have seperately introduced me to a fascinating creature. So much was I taken with this creature that it is going to make a significant appearance in the next book, volume 3. To tell you more would spoil your reading so I will just thank James McKay, and Katherine Darlington in the UK, and an extraordinary lady in Greece who had one called Hermes.

The reason for blogging about this now is to make an observation about how writing is influenced by randomly occuring events. I have always thought that planning a career is a thankless task. Looking back, nearly all the most important things that shaped my career happened in totally unplanned ways. It seems writing is a little like that too. Some of the major events in WITHOUT TRACE were inspired by quite unexpected and unconnected events. This is already happening in the third volume.
