Lyrical is a contemporary fiction novel set in the mid to late nineteen eighties.  The setting focuses primarily around the County of Angus on the north east coast of Scotland. Lyrical depicts the ever-revolving changes within the lives of its characters.  As you build their personas, the author tantalises, frustrates and teases the reader as she shapes the characters traits, dislikes and passions within your mind

The author uses two of the main characters, Louise Dixon and Charlie Grey to demonstrate the choices, growth and development (inclusive of maturity) they encounter as they make the transition from young adults to adults. Louise Dixon has grown up in a single parent family with her dad, Daniel. The book relays the struggles, demands and emotional challenges that a single parent family encounters over the years: the mid-1980s social norms inclusive of a nuclear family, two parents with two children to differ from these created predjucies, individuals being judgemental against father. Thankfully, this was beginning to change when marriage rates went down as couples decided to live together and divorce rates went up in the late 1980s.

At the age of three I moved from the idyllic town of Marple in  Cheshire, England to the beautiful Town of Arbroath, on the North East  Coast of Scotland.  After attending St Andrews University as a mature  student, I came to a crossroads in my life.  With the support and  encouragement of my Husband Iain and my Son Michael, I decided to follow  my dream of writing a children’s book.  Tikera my handsome Alaskan  Malamute was the inspiration behind what I hope will become a series of  books on the adventures that he has had, in the beautiful settings we  are surrounded by in Arbroath.
