As promised I’m back, and for those of you who are fed up with seeing my name in your inbox, fret ye not, it’ll be weeks until I appear again. But something important has happened. The Murder, a new book is out there and I offered signed copies of it (and an acknowledgement) in exchange for characters, for the third in the Little Compton Mysteries – The Burglar. What a great response, I really wish I could use them all. For those of you who have given me character profiles who were not chosen for The Burglar, you never know I may use them in another book, and you’ll get your just reward.
Thank you to all those who have contacted me about this new series, I’m so chuffed you’re enjoying it.
And the characters you will be meeting in The Burglar are:
From Carol Frank – Nine-year-old Axel Wagner is obsessed with Lego, he watches everything and everyone, but hates speaking to strangers. He also dislikes his neighbour, Michelle Neil, who spends most of her day in the garden smoking and talking on her phone, and therefore disturbing him when he’s trying to build his latest model. If it wasn’t for the fact her eight year old son, Jack, took Axel under his wing when they moved to Greater Compton, he’d probably report her to the police. He knows a lot about Michelle.
From Pippa Domitruk – Single mum, Michelle Neil. Mother of two children who she adores, and a party animal. Now free of her abusive spouse, and confident enough to leave her children with babysitters, she intends to have some fun. She’d have more if she could, but money is tight, and those kids just won’t stop growing.
From Geoff Turner (relative!) – Grumpy Geoff O’Brien. Widower who has lived in Little Compton all his life. He’s grumpy about getting old, grumpy about people who park on the pavement, grumpy about queueing to spend his money. Generally grumpy about most things, except finding out he has relatives all over the world as he searches the internet to find his true origins.
Once again, thank you for all the entries, I liked them all, I’ve kept them and I promise I will be revisiting them at some point.
