In September 2005 ROME ALONE was born – celebrate with free downloads 22-24 September!

September is a special month in my heart: in September 2005 I went to Rome on a solo trip, staying at an hotel on Via Vittorio Veneto – and while the rain occasionally poured down outside, I had an idea about two strangers who plan solo trips to Rome to get over heartbreak.

The first draft was one of 100 winners of the Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook’s New Novel Centenary Award in 2007 – but it took me another eight years to finish the book and publish it on Amazon Kindle in May 2015. There are now four novels in the series – and two more in the writing!

Sometimes life gets in the way of the process of creativity – but it is important to keep going, regardless of how long it takes. Whatever gets in the way of a literary goal – life, family, work, ill health, other people, disappointment, even plagiarism, which sadly does happen – just keep going if you can. Rome was not built in a day, after all.

ROME ALONE and ROME AGAIN are free to download 22-24 September, marking the time I spent in Rome that September in 2005 and the people I encountered on that trip who followed me around – my characters: Bee and Dr Neil McCarthy, Alessandro and Gussie, Pino and Paola, Max and Lia, Prim and Mary, Dr Noel McCarthy and Moira, Susan McCarthy and Alastair Kinross, Philip and Professor Nigel Ponsonby Standen, Ned, Jed and all the children, plus everyone at Maria’s  one-star pensione and the plush Hotel Belami (not its real name) on Via Vittorio Veneto.

There are now other characters I spend time with – most of them I met on my frequent trips to Rome, also. You never know who you will encounter in the Eternal City… but I find, in Rome, no one is quite who or what they seem…

Buon viaggio!
