Is it me? I can’t believe what’s happening these days and it’s one thing after another. I’ve just spent a wonderful ten days holiday in beautiful Turkey; great food, amazing scenery and some of the kindest and friendliest people I’ve ever met. But I come back home and…
Sometimes, I’m a coward as I dread switching on the news.
After Britain was gripped by terrifying riots, I find the constant fighting in Tripoli continues. More bodies have been found piled dead whilst Gaddafi continues his murderous grip on Libya. I despair as our boys are still coming home from Afghanistan dead and injured. Then in greater Africa there are hundreds of innocent lives being claimed every day by famine, disease and disaster. I now fear the worst every time I log onto the internet.
Today, we send our thoughts, prayers and all best wishes to all our American friends and readers. Hurricane Irene is just yet another disaster and has caused mass mandatory evacuation of low-lying areas in New York and New Jersey. Please spare a thought to all those around the world who are in precarious places.
Please everyone, take care and keep safe.
PS I nearly forgot! On a much lighter note I’ve just finished writing my latest novel: Children of The Plantation. It’s set in the fifties and sixties Malaya. A time of intrigue, skirmishes with Indonesia, love, hate, passion and mystery. I'm doing the final edits at the moment and I hope to have the book published in e Format in September. The paperback will follow shortly for those of you who still love the smell and feel of a book. I know you’ll love this one!
