Still stumbling around the web trying to construct a presentable platform on which to store whatever of my writing survives my severe self criticism. Always open to constructive suggestions. My long term aim is to have the best of my work floating around beyond my lifetime. Encouraging this conceit are a couple of events which lead me to believe I have something worth sharing. One of my poems was bracketed between Donne's "Ecstasy" and Blake's "Tyger". The BBC purchased 7 poems to be used within "PlaySchool" (at the time I was Isabel Reeves). I have 2 non-fiction works which have provided positive feedback from viewers. While some of this work was accessible through Esselerate and available for purchase, there were many downloads but no purchases.(DRM-ed - need I say more?)
I have no illusions. My work so far does not have any appeal for a wide audience. If you have any connection with the effects of asbestos, you may want to read "The Whens of Wittenoom." If you, or anyone close to you, has their life turned upside down due to the manic episodes inherent in bi-polar disorder, you may want to try reading "Life Before Lithium." Hard copies had been provided for review and the response was that it was a page turner and that folk were not able to put it down until sleep overtook at 3am. The publisher to whom I sent this MS was embarrassed by the need to advise that the reader appointed to assess my book had disappeared and taken the manuscript with her!
I am currently attempting a novel which I aim to include many of the insights gained during mania, illustrating that we all live a life worth reading and that to be mundane is, in itself, a source of wonder.
