Soul Connection

Over A Spitfire is a story of forbidden love during World War Two. LGBT relationships weren’t as accepted in the 1940s as they are today and so Ava and Will’s love was a secret, a secret cut short by Will’s death. We follow her to the afterlife and feel her despair at being witness to Ava’s developing romance with Henry, but Will has plans to return to earth…

During the writing of Over A Spitfire I had an idea to have Will’s reincarnated character trace her family but didn’t know where it would fit in so I decided against it. Some weeks after publication I was watching a TV programme about reincarnation where people with feelings of deja vu had traced a family from a previous life. In the sequel this is what Will’s reincarnated character does.

For anyone who’s read Over A Spitfire and enjoyed it I’d like them to read the sequel as in it the character finds closure. It is only a short novella and for that reason I’ve kept the price low at 99p. I hope you enjoy the stories. If you do a review would be very welcome. Thank you.

Film Rights

Film rights. Is it a dream all we authors have to see our stories on the cinema or TV screen?

As I write my stories I can see my characters come alive before my eyes as if on a screen, I can hear their voices as they love, fight and make up, as they laugh, cry and just live.

Do we all have those dreaming moments when we are in repose, twiddling our pens, staring blankly at our computer screens?

How do other authors see their stories on screen? Would you want them adapted into film or would you prefer to keep them as they were in your head and let the reader keep them as they see them?

I’d like to see my Willow’s Dip series as a Sunday evening TV series. Aidan Turner (Poldark) would have been fabulous for my Nathaniel O’Keefe but he’s much too big a star now for my little story. I’d love Over A Spitfire, my wartime reincarnation story and its sequel with the family ancestry theme to become either a film or a drama. I can see those wonderful Spitfires in action, hear the memorable wartime songs that my parents used to sing, and the 60s songs I grew up listening to. I can see the mods with their Vespa scooters and the 60s fashions, hear the jukebox playing in the little cafe the teeneagers hang out in in my story.

All I need is that element of luck – don’t we all – for my story – any of my stories – to be seen by the right eyes, to be in the right place at the right time.

I can but dream…

…Christmas is nigh, here’s Authoress Maureen Turner with some goodies…

An author friend also featured on Seumas’ blog, Maureen Turner. We got to know each other via Twitter and reading each other’s books. I’ve read all of her books and they are fabulous, I love her writing style. This one has some wonderful stories. I particularly liked Two Turtle Doves and Three French Hens.

…today’s Guest Post is prolific Authoress Maureen Turner (it means ‘she writes lots of stuff’, Mabel)… it’s the sharing time of year, and she’s got sum’thing to share with us… I’ll let her tell a bit about herself first:

maureen

                Born in Birmingham, I now live in rural Gloucestershire. I wrote my first novel (First Breath) shortly before being made redundant by Gloucestershire County Council. Prior to this, I had worked as a Classroom Assistant for twenty five years and I now wondered how I was now going to fill my time. I found that I was worrying needlessly. Since finishing full time employment I have penned four novels and two collections of short stories all published as e-books. Four of them were later published as traditional paperback books. 
My constant companion as I write is my Jack Russell rescue dog…

The Germination of OVER A SPITFIRE
Summer 2011
“I’ve got a great idea for a book for you,” my son Mark stated as soon as I’d got my bum on their settee, “it’ll make you a fortune.” (Ha, we wish!) He continued. “You’ve got a couple, he dies, then comes back reincarnated and they meet again.”
“I’m not writing that!” I said aghast. “It’s tempting Fate.”
“You can’t think like that or you’d never write anything.”
“They’d be different ages.”
He shrugged. “Well think about it.”
I did. My stories have…
