Writing has always been an integral part of my life since childhood. I was an avid reader and found it immensely cathartic both reading and writing, losing myself in other worlds and other people’s stories. 

Ukraine: The consequences of war in pandemic times

A blog,  highlighting my first fictional  novel, A thousand miles from nowhere.

 

 

I self- published a semi -autobiographical novel, a coming of age, travel, experimental road trip a few years ago before this latest book which is completely different.

"A Thousand Miles from Nowhere"

I have also begun the sequel to 2020 as well as a book about my father’s fascinating life and his experience as an immigrant from India in the UK in the 50s.

My novel: 

"2020 When Time Stood Still"

I am British born but have lived much of my life in Spain from a young age. I am mother to two human daughters and five rescue felines. My author names are of course pseudonyms ; both names are inspired by my Anglo -Indian roots and the surnames in my family.

 

My family and friends encouraged me with the writing of "2020 When Time Stood Still", two in particular, Caroline and Tricia, who both suggested at the beginning of the year, that I write another book. I couldn’t think for the life of me at that moment what to write as my other books were put on hold, I was not inspired at all but then 2020 really began and I was not short of material!

I began writing the book in March 2020 when stranded at a hotel at Gatwick airport. I had no intention of writing a book specifically about 2020 but as my personal adventures and experiences intensified it became a cathartic experience, a necessity when back in Spain living through one of the strictest lockdowns in the world at the time.

The story is a combination of personal experience combined with much research and an awful lot of imagination, something I’ve never been short of…

 

I decided that the description of ‘Thriller/fantasy/Sci-Fi or reality’ with a hint of irony and black humor was the only possible way to describe any book that includes 2020 in the title, for as the powers that be like to regularly remind us, we are living in ‘unprecedented times’ aka you couldn’t make this shit up!

 

This book is dedicated to my beautiful cousin Ivor: Apart from all the other personal and global challenges faced this year, in August during the writing of this book my young cousin and his partner were violently murdered. This brutal act completely rocked our world, leaving me unable to continue writing for a while as I attempted to process the shock and grief. Please hold a thought for his grieving parents, brother and all his loved ones as they/we fight for justice for Ivor.

 

I also dedicate this book to the people of Beirut-you too get a mention in my story…

Please share and pass on to all those you believe will enjoy the experience and appreciate the message.

 

Thank you

And May The Force Be With You...

From the author,

Skye
