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.
