I’m excited to let everyone know that my book ‘Finding Eliza’ is to be launched at 2pm on Sunday 22nd April 2018, at the Majorca Hall in Majorca (Central Victoria). All welcome. RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org
This story has been a long time coming. It’s changed as I’ve changed. The characters have developed as I’ve developed my craft as a writer. For reasons that sometimes evaded me, I have persevered with getting this story to completion and shaping it into a novel that I can now call complete. I have learnt so much about the world of writing, publishing and the demanding stages and processes that are required for a book production.
I believed that Eliza and Knill’s story should be told. Although fiction, it mirrors the psychological lives and journeys of many relinquishing mother’s and father’s, adoptees and adoptive families. Lives that were lived for decades in the shadow of a deep secret. In many ways they were forced to live with their grief and secrecy that sat just below the surface of their daily existence. There is also the hope and resilience that is sometimes the key to making sense of finding belonging and your place in the world. Hopefully, I have done justice to these issues.
