She was starting to get her name known, with articles in the Independent and other papers.

All contracts were cancelled. And Mum, she lost her nerve and changed lovers and became distracted. Fatal
Old computers, old lovers and dodgy filling meant no whole book had been found. But then she turned up in the village, with nothing but two large refugees bags.

Dusty bound copies in old type. We are scanning the best, my sister and I, and are now trying to work out how to publish them for e books. Keep an eye out and we will let you know when the first launch is.
