An Inspired Fay Sampson Muses on Inspiration

By Fay Sampson ~ February 10, 2016

Writing is addictive. Throughout my writing career, I have not finished writing one book before the next one has been pushing to be written. Sometimes there is a log jam of ideas. I have to prod the pile and see which is the next one to float free.

But towards the end of last year I realised that this wasn’t happening. It wasn’t writer’s block. I had several ideas for books I could write and would enjoy writing. But none of them had that imperative I’d been used to

I wondered whether...


Fay Sampson Celebrates a Golden Anniversary

By Fay Sampson ~ December 14, 2015

 I almost overlooked it. When the hardback of my latest crime thriller, The Wounded Thorn, came out in February I thought it was my 49th book. Since I was 80 this year, I thought it would have been nice for this to have been my 50th

Then, a few months ago, I discovered that a small book I had written for the Association of Christian Writers, Your Guide to Creating a Christian Writer Group, had been published two years ago by Media Associates International as an ebook available on Amazon. 

Suddenly the numbers changed. The Wounded Thorn was now...


Have You Heard About the Crime Cafe?

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ November 30, 2015

My guest today is the amazing Debbi Mack. I have known Debbi for several years and am a great fan of her Sam McRae mysteries. I was hooked on the first one because, as a lawyer's wife, I appreciated how careful Sam is to stay within the lines of the ethics of her profession while solving crimes in a creative way.

Then Debbi invited me to be a guest on The Crime Cafe (interview here)  and to contribute to her Season One Story Package. This is a real bargain...

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ November 15, 2015

I'm delighted today to be joining in the general celebration over the launch of Wendy Jones' newest book Killer's Cross, book 3 in her phenomenally successful DI Shona McKenzie tartan noir series. Killer's Countdown, Killer's Craft and Killer's Cross have come out at the breath-taking speed of 3 books in 13 months so I've asked Wendy to talk to us about her writing process. Over to you, Wendy--

 My guest today is Christine Lindsay whose Twilight of the British Raj series has given me many pleasant hours of reading as it brought back memories of such great television viewing as "The Jewel in the Crown" and "The Last Viceroy" and more recently "Indian Summers."  It seems, however, that not all of Christine's potential readers take to the subject as naturally as I do. Tell us more, Christine.



A Year of Prehistory

By Fay Sampson ~ October 25, 2015

 I’m having a great year for prehistory. I celebrated my 80th birthday at the spine-tingling stone circle of Avebury (see post of July 8), We followed this up with a weekend at Stonehenge, led by archaeologist Mike Stone.


What is great about both Avebury and Stonehenge is that it is not just a single site, impressive though that is. Both are surrounded by a whole sacred landscape. 

So in the chill of early morning we were at Woodhenge, where rings of concrete pillars now show where once the wooden posts stood more than 4000 years ago.
