Leaving? What are you leaving, Glynis? I hear you ask. Well, I’m leaving the shores of the UK for 15 days. I head out to Canada (Vancouver), to see my son on Friday! The last time I visited him was a joyful time but it ended with the death of my father back in the UK. We lived in Cyprus at the time so there was a lot of flying from Canada to UK and onto Cyprus going on. This visit will be to my son’s new home and I look forward to seeing him and his wife very much as it has been a long time coming. When we took a trip into Seattle from Vancouver in 2012, I was inspired to write the city into my 1800’s sequel Ripped Genes. I wonder what will inspire me this time around!

crime scene image 2I am leaving a few chapters alone of Whitefoam manuscript – they are finished. I can do no more to alter their path within the plot. The notes have truly become a story! I am writing out of order which is a strange method for me but it is quite refreshing – and works.

This is another image of the crime scene in the novel. Dark seaweed gathers in the corner of the promenade and has always made me stop and wonder what I could create in this area. The tall white building in the background is also of significance to the story. Behind the beach huts on the right of the picture is a park, and there is a park cafe where I introduce Rose Chalmers the  fictitious owner, to Morag Blake, my detective. She is quite a character.

I will be leaving you with a Meet the Author post. It is one of my local author friends who I meet with on a regular basis. David Evans is a crime writer and is thrilled I’ve moved over to the darker side of my writing world. In fact, tonight we and our other writing buddy, Peter Best will meet up and chat all things books. This is one of my favourite times in my writing life, thrashing out the ideas, helping a fellow author create their new world, they help me create mine, the pulling together is fabulous.

So, I leave you with my good wishes and see you at the end of May. Take care and thank you for your support.



About Glynis Smy

I live in the UK, in the seaside town of, Dovercourt~Harwich, where I enjoy writing novels. I've written historical romance/suspense, Medical romance and my latest WIP is in the crime genre. The Victorian era fascinates me and the best part of writing a novel is often the research. Proud writing moments in my life: Shortlisted for Festival of Romance Fiction 2014 New Talent Award Reaching second round of Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award 2014 Maggie's Child: reached #1 Amazon best-seller: Historical Romance Victorian /February 2014/ebook & book paid list.

Seeing my books in a Suffolk (UK), library. Over the years I've written short stories in a variety of genres. I've also won a few poetry contests, my first was at the age of twelve, (a poem about the Bangladeshi war). I also won a children's short story competition where the prize was a first-aid box, I was so proud but my husband found it amusing because we owned two pharmacies. My articles have been published in magazines both in the UK and Cyprus. I am also featured in various places on-line. When I am not writing, I enjoy making greetings cards, Cross Stitch, fishing and the company of my little granddaughters.
