They both live near to me so they keep me up to date with life and changing trends and I enjoy my grandchildren’s company.

I did not start writing until my elder daughter went to university. I entered a Woman’s Weekly competition and I was fortunate when Lynda O'Byrne, the fiction editor, wrote to tell me she had liked my entry and suggested I finish it and send it to publisher Robert Hale.

This book was fast paced with strong characters and a real sense of place in Japan, on the sailing ship and in England. It is well researched and learning something new while reading a good fictional story is an added bonus.

Gwen Kirkwood I can thoroughly recommend One Sweet Moment by Maggie Craig. It is an exciting and gritty story taking us from the slums beneath the Edinburgh Bridges to the quality of the New Town, from hard work and poverty to the sweetest of sweet moments. It combines good fiction with scrupulous historical research
