It's a thriller and a romance set in medieval France, a great read for a rainy Sunday or a quiet night in. (Guys, don't let the word"romance" put you off, there's plenty in there for you too.)

It doesn't pretend to be Literature, it's got less bondage than "Fifty Shades", the body count is low, and there aren't any car chases at all. Despite this I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

I'm feeling that now, as though I've sent a part of me on ahead to be a forward scout. It hasn't reported back yet though, so I still have little idea what to expect.

However, there are some goodbyes still to be said.

When I first arrived in Perth just over a year ago I knew no-one, so I joined Meetup and enrolled in various groups - movies, eating out, live music and, of course, writing. To my everlasting delight I discovered The Victoria Park Writers' Group. (In my innocence I thought that, being a big city, every suburb had its writers' group!
