I was over the moon when I was invited into BBC Radio Leicester to talk about being a local author who has written a saga set in Leicestershire, during WW2

This may, or may not, work. I’ve just listened to my interview on BBC Radio Leicester, and the link is below. Ben Jackson’s show started at 9 and my interview began at 9.10 and finished at 9.25. I was more nervous listening to it than I was when I was doing it. Like most people, I hate listening to my voice when its recorded and I’d rather be asking questions than answering them.

Stop with the excuses, Madalyn! http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p05gl0r8#play

MadalynMadalyn: Three years ago I moved to Lutterworth in Leicestershire. I was born in Lutterworth, but had lived in London for thirty-five years.  I moved to South East London when I was offered a place at East15 Drama College.  Some years later, after touring and working in Repertory Theatres all over the UK, I found myself out of work.  It was then that I made London my base.  In the 1970s and 80s most auditions were held in…

Today…..An “Author” Is Born!

One of my first interviews with the lovely Vikki Thompson after writing Foxden Acres.

The View Outside

Today is the official publication day for Foxden Acres, the book written by my friend and fellow writer Madalyn Morgan. Maddie has thrown her heart and soul into this book, deciding to self publish via Kindle. I’m so pleased for her….she is an inspiration!

So before she gets all rich and famous, I’ve had the opportunity to ask her a few questions about her experience of self publishing and the book that will turn her from writer to author…

Where did the idea for Foxden Acres come from?

It was a combination of things. My mother inspired me to write about the Second World War. The year before she died, mum said she’d like to give back a brass airplane to the young Polish pilot who had made it for her in 1940. Unfortunately, he had died, but I found his son. He was delighted to have the plane because…

Roger A Price: From Crime Fighter to Crime Writer – My Guest Author this week writes from experience

Great blog. Great interview with retired high ranking police officer and crime writer Roger A. Price

Jane Risdon

It’s my great pleasure to have Roger A Price on my blog this week.

You are in for a treat.

I’ve read two of his books, Nemesis and Vengeance, and couldn’t put them down and didn’t want either of them to end. I’m itching to read more.

He writes from experience and boy, he’s had a few as a Detective believe me.

I have asked him some very searching questions which he has patiently answered. When you’ve read his responses, do please read on about his career in the Police and what makes him write and how he came to be published.

At the end of this post there is a FREE to read short story, HARD TIME, so don’t go away!  

Oh! and Nemesis and Vengeance are available for a limited time for Kindle for 99p each – details at the end of this post.

As ever do…
