In January 2021, I received brilliant feed back on my book Just Say It!
Now, after endless revision, the end is in sight!
Just Say It is my first novel, and I have learned so much from writing it, including the way I wrote the first few drafts. My Pantser days are gone!
It’s been a long haul, including taking time out to write the first draft of my second novel, The Secret Lives of the Doyenne of Didsbrook, which was scrupulously plotted!
It is very important to me that Just Say It gets into print.

This bittersweet story follows the first four decades of Lisa Grant’s life.

Turning forty, Lisa still bears the scars of her dysfunctional childhood.  Her narcissist mother, Elizabeth, is responsible for her insecurities and Lisa needs to break the negative emotional hold Elizabeth has over her. Harnessing her journalistic skills, Lisa investigates her mother’s past and is shocked by what she uncovers.

After finding out the truth about her mother’s early life, can she find it in her heart to forgive Elizabeth for her appalling behaviour over the last forty years?
