Thanks to Wendy H Jones https://www.wendyhjones.com and her fortnightly ‘Book Buzz’ show on Mearns FM, a Scottish Community Radio station near Stonehaven in Scotland, I can post a link to her interview of me and my books. It is here below in its abriged version.
In the show, I talked not only about my books but also selected five songs which mean a lot to me. The programme seemed a bit like the BBC’s Desert Island Discs, where well-known people talk about themselves and their work and choose a number of their favourite songs. I would like to post a link to a couple of these songs, as when I write a book, I always choose a song that my characters can sing to each other. It is in effect, their cover song.
For Waireka that song is – You Raise me up sang by Daniel O’ Donnell. https://youtu.be/agYOOtk2B90 This is the song that I feel Eliza would sing to Robert because he raises her out of her difficult situation and gives her renewed hope.
For my first book, Alpha Male, that song is – Draw me close to you by Hillsong https://youtu.be/IdJBYyNsQd0 This is the song that I believe Craig, the hero of my novella would sing to the heroine, Amy.
So I hope you will not only take the time to hear a bit more about my two books but also to listen to my music choices to connect a bit more with me and my characters. Thank you.
I enjoyed listening to this interview Sheila and hearing your choice of music. Wendy is a very good interviewer too.
Thanks, Sheila. I originally chose five songs but listening to the whole programme would take you an hour, which most people don't have. The interview is abridged here by my computer savvy son. The two songs I have posted here were the ones directly relevant to my books.
