I wonder if the WordPress Community could help me…..
So, here goes:
A couple of month’s back I was reminiscing with my Mum. I asked her about an interesting character that used to visit us. We called him the Day and Night Man because he used to arrive just before lunch or supper. When he came, us kids were chased out of the dining room so that the adults could talk. We knew our freeloader was involved in hush-hush affairs.
So, back to Mum. She told me that he was a double agent, but she declined to go into details about his activities – best to let sleeping dogs lie. From what little she disclosed, the Day and Night Man was, indeed, an interesting character. He was Mum’s cousin. Their grandmothers were sisters. Sadly, he was gunned down by unknown assailants in his house, back in the 1980s. I guess one side got to him.
The Day and Night Man got me thinking. I started writing a story about him. I let my imagination loose and it soared like and African condor. The result was my second novel.
I had planned to have the story as three separate books, but I ended up with a book with three parts. I need the reader to get the full SP. I chose the Latin word for Conspiracy. I think it adds gravitas to the book. The story is about conspiracies, after all.
So, I would like the WordPress communities to have a read of my story, over the summer, as a respite to all your blogging. Or ask any of the new adults (18 to 30) that you might know.
Here’s the book description I have used when I published the book on Amazon:
Would you have the courage to solve a murder, especially if the deceased was a family member?
Nineteen-year-old Zeb discovers that his uncle was not a victim of a hit and run accident, but of murder. After his shock, anger, regret and helplessness, he vows to find the truth about his uncle’s death.
Accompany Zeb and an unorthodox Celtic heiress with golden eyes and a gift of Third Sight, on his quest. Follow them down one heart-pounding rabbit hole after another, as they follow the murderer trail. Lift the rock off an ancient conspiracy and open cans of worms, as they search for Truth and Justice.
Take a deep breath and enjoy the roller-coaster ride of murder, mystery, conspiracy, sex, family intrigue and retribution.
If you are interested, feel free to e-mail or contact me via the Contact page. Parts of the story are autobiographical. London was my home for a decade, spanning the 80s and 90s.
Peace be with you.
PS: Is it usual for an author or writer to be moved by his or her work? Some parts of my story had me in tears.
