The Girl in Sorrow’s Field Writing Process

A man has died.

A woman has disappeared.

And the police are here to talk to your son.


The Girl in Sorrow's Field


This is the premise of my first novel, The Girl in Sorrow’s Field.

As a writer, I have always been interested in the moments that change a person’s life.  The instances that are so dramatic, so extraordinary, so devastating, that life will never be the same again.

This is a theme that appears time and time again in my writing, and I have a lot of fun (if that’s the right word!) exploring it.

I began writing this novel at the start of 2017, and it was created 1,000 words or so each day sitting in my home office with my candles burning and music playing.  I like to listen to music without lyrics while I am writing, but it has to be very quiet.  Sometimes, I’ve decided the music is too loud, and gone to turn it down only to discover it’s playing at volume one and any lower is silence!

You can purchase The Girl in Sorrow’s Field from Amazon, and if you are part of Kindle Unlimited you can download it for free.

Please remember, writers rely on honest reviews.  If you read, please take the time to leave a rating and review – it is so appreciated!
