About me

Creativity is my life-blood. My passions are choral music and writing, and if I can combine the two, so much the better. With a piano in the kitchen, it’s not unknown for me to combine a bit of practice with cooking meals for my schoolteacher husband and two teenage children. Maybe an aga-saga will be next, following recent publication of my memoir. I have an appetite for tasty metaphors and I’m a stickler for correct spelling and grammar – so if you find an erroneous apostrophe in my work, please let me know!

Also, reading online, while using my phone ties it up too long. I would be happy to read and then publish my review here, if you can send me a text file of the book so that I can read it offline. If that is possible, you can mail it as an attachment to IPBookReviewer@aol.com. Best, Glenda (more) and bagged+3

Please ensure that you keep the text within the margins displayed on the spine as we cannot guarantee that text outside of these lines will be properly displayed when printed. These margins are actually quite hard to see on your cover as your background is black, but there are some faint blue lines if you look very closely! (If you have difficulty seeing them, you could perhaps change the background colour temporarily while you get the positioning right.) Thanks for your patience and all the best, Anna (more) and earned+3

It looks like we have figured out the problem now so I will send you an email with details of the fix on Monday. All the best, Anna (more) and bagged+3

Since I'm also very keen on travel writing, 'A real musical journey!' was an especially apt header, and I'm very pleased that that conveys a sense of direction in the book. Good luck to your children with their musical endeavours, tell them it's worth it! As a post-script to the memoir, I did actually put myself through Grade 6 recently - and passed (just!) Take care, Katherine (more) and earned+3

Is there anything that can be done? I'm reluctant to go into the editing area without knowing, in case this means I use up my one remaining publishing credit. Please could you let me know as soon as possible, because I need to do some promotion with my local bookshops and musical groups. Thanks, Katherine (more) and gained+3

Anne Tyler's one of my favourite authors, and although I've never been there, I feel she's shown me a bit of it! Take care, Katherine (more) and received+3

There's something rather strange about having published a memoir, as it's almost a case of saying 'if you want to see into my heart and soul, help yourself' - makes one rather vulnerable! Hope your writing's going well. All the best, Katherine (more) and received+3
