It is the winding down period of the college year. All the exams have been passed, all the assignments handed in and tutorials subjects finished. Long days are spent idling in the girl’s hostel, when the discovery of a veritable treasure chest of Mills & Boone paperbacks is unearthed from one of the students. Once tasted, I literally devour two and three novels a day.
Time passes. Careers begin, married life and then babies. A new career path for my husband and myself in a new state. Children grow, and leave home. Always a voracious reader, one day in the library, my daughter hands me a book to look at. She is too young to realize the story content and she just likes the pastel colours of the Book cover. It is “Pearl Cove” by Elizabeth Lowell, and I fall, instantly and irrevocably, in love with Avon romance and Avon authors.
And now it is my time to write.
