And what's to come?

And then I've been writing other stuff. I’m on to my fourth serial for Women’s Weekly. Very much in the preliminary stages with this newest story which means writing the first part, waiting for the editorial input, re-working if necessary and then moving on to the next part. I like this process actually, though perhaps it’s not for everyone. But being edited, self-editing and re-writing is, to me at least, at the very heart of creating fiction; it’s what I enjoy most next to researching which I completely adore and which gives me a valid excuse to pore over books and documents and dig into things with my metaphorical trowel and find out what lies beneath the soil. Once I wanted to be an archaeologist; researching for stories is probably the nearest I’m going to get to it! Most recently I’ve been doing just that for something other than a serial and which has resulted in me helping to produce a podcast, writing a short story for audio and e-book, and celebrating a town near to where I live. It’s for Historic England and it’s for a project called High Street Tales where seven towns have been chosen to have stories written about them. I especially wanted to take part in the project as it involved research, of course, but there was a specific area i.e. the shops, the retail side of things in the town, which really appealed to me when I found out that the earliest of my Irish ancestors came to North Shields to set up a Boot & Shoe business. Now, I wasn’t born in North Shields, in fact I come from south of the river Tyne originally but my Irish routes form a bridge between North and South Tyne. Apparently, I’m 100% Irish & Scottish with not a bit of anything else in me, which is a little disappointing, I have to admit , as Jarrow, where I came from, was, apparently, one of the first places the Vikings came to when they hit our shores. Anyway, you can find out more about my story 'Time and The Shoe Man' if you visit: https://historicengland.org.uk/services-skills/heritage-action-zones/regenerating-historic-high-streets/cultural-programme/high-street-tales/
