Release of the Pineapple
And here it is... the book that so many people who know me will know I refer to as 'The Pineapple Book' because writing it felt, quite simply put, like giving birth to a pineapple. It was a painful experience!
But they do say that the ones you find most difficult to write are quite often the ones that prove most popular... I shall leave that to you. I myself, like the cover! It's set on the County Down coastline and apart from the blue sky (which we so rarely see here) I think the cover encapsulates the beauty of the place so, so well. And it's the second book I've had that had the input of the art department in the U.S. so my characters look like they should. Tall, dark haired Sean and the auburn haired Maggie...
I sincerely hope the story reads better than it felt to write... But then, in fairness, I was ill at the time. (I'll take any excuse...)
