I started tinkering with the idea of a tea and stationery store called Tea and Crumples over ten years ago. The beginnings of a novel by the same name were lost – so I thought- five years back. I took the story up again recently, and it took off. Then my amazing husband found some of my old files, saved in a recovery folder, an entire cast of characters sitting there, having tea, writing their penpals maybe, waiting for me to write them. Now the task is underway. Watch this space for updates. In the meantime, look for my novel Can’t Buy Me Love in June 2013, published by Light Messages. I also write at Writing Like a Mother.
