|"There is an edge to Margaret’s writing that is terrific. Rarely do I see such confidence on the page."|
It’s 2012 and already I see several exciting challenges and adventures ahead.
First, after a two year drought in writing, the flood-gates have opened and I am back to it with a vengeance.
My present project is the first sequel to FLOATING GOLD. Set in 1803, it continues the naval career of Captain Quintrell and the officers and crew who served on Elusive. My working title for this new nautical fiction novel is, THE TAINTED PRIZE.
But the past two years have not been wasted and in December 2011, I graduated from the University of Tasmania with an Associate Degree in Arts. The reason I returned to UTAS was to learn more of the colonial history of Tasmania especially about the early settlers, convicts and bushrangers.
I am still planning to write the story of Matthew Brady, the ‘Gentleman Bushranger’, but I will finish my work in progress first.
I have also moved into the world of E-books with Belgrave House re-publishing all my books in e-formats. These are available from www.amazon.com for Kindle readers and from Belgrave House (www.belgravehouse.com) in TEN other electronic formats.
This year, apart from writing two books, I plan to visit London later in the year. Re-visiting the Greenwich Maritime Museum and the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard are high on my list of ‘must-see’ places.
But I’m also planning a cruise to the Mediterranean. With ports like Gibraltar and Algiceras (a city whose history stretches way back before the Romans and the Phoenicians to the Neanderthals from the Paleolithic era). I find history both amazing and intriguing.
