Projects, old and new

December 20, 2017

I once told a former colleague that I work harder now I’m retired than when we worked together. His response, ‘Well that wouldn’t be difficult’!

Never was there a truer word spoken. This past year has been solid work, though not writing, for me, and our family. I won’t bore everyone with the details, but we moved house and ended up with a lengthy, major renovation project involving every form of building service possible to make the home we wanted. My in-house editor has been too busy packing and now unpacking boxes to work on my projects, while I have helped with all the lifting and shifting. In the midst of this, in February The Fountain of Daphne was released to help ELEPAP, the Greek children’s charity, and in November Picture of Innocence, the ninth DI Mike Nash was released in paperback. Our long-standing joke since February has been that the first thing we will do in the new house will be to put up the Christmas tree. Well I’m delighted to say that this week – we did!

We still have work to do but we’re nearly finished and we’re hopeful that by February we will be back at work in the new office. The new neighbours will be pleased to know the builders have finished and peace will reign again. And for my readers … the tenth Mike Nash is waiting in the wings.

A very Merry Christmas to everyone.



  1. I am so happy another Mike Nash is on it’s way, I am now waiting for the new year. Happy
    Christmas to your family

  2. Thank you for your support, Una and I hope you have a happy Christmas and a good New Year.
