Those of you who have read my books know that I am a big believer of ageing disgracefully! Well, Amanda’s mother does a good job of ageing disgracefully with her exploits abroad while Amanda is always attempting to discover new activities and challenges to keep her and Phil focussed on fun and life.
Recently, I have been giving talks about ageing as part of my book tours. I have discovered, not surprisingly that people want to enjoy life and take up challenges no matter what their age.
I’d like to introduce you to someone who is one such person. Avis Randall was originally published by Piatkus in 1997 but has now joined ThornBerry publishing.
Set in her native North Somerset, A Drift of Daisies was launched as an eBook on September 12th. It is a deeply moving novel in the tradition of Maeve Binchy. The sequel Moondrift will be released next year.
The reason for me bringing this to your attention other than it is an exceptionally good read (I have put an extract below) is that Avis has just broken into the world of the internet and is embracing it. She has now got an eBook released and another on its way. So what’s special? Avis is (and I hope she doesn’t mind me mentioning it here) a youthful 82. See, you are never too old to try something new.
Avis’s novel – A Drift of Daisies is available for purchase from these links - AMAZON UK and AMAZON US
