Find some wintry silence …

If you let it, this time of year can be hectic but I’ve taken time out to think about my writing experience over 2017. Secretly, I’m still a little scared of social media BUT I’ve made supportive friends as a result and am learning all the time. I make mistakes, but “nothing ventured, nothing gained”.

First off, One Stop Fiction has been an indispensable site and I just love the amazing blogger, Jessie Cahalin. What an inspirational, original lady

About Angela Petch

Bit of a story dreamer, written four novels - a fifth to be published on April 7th 2021. I love my little family and in no particular order afterwards: Italian culture, food, wine, walking everywhere I can and especially in the Apennines, East Africa, tennis when I can, reading, reading and more reading. So much to discover still before I die.

      And continuing to find it useful…sometimes baffling for the little grey cells. But, never too late, in my humble opinion…
