July 2011

Kath Middleton began her writing with drabbles (100 words stories) and contributed a number to Jonathan Hill’s second drabble collection.

Picture Picture Sundown House Retirement Home for Ladies is the setting for my recent publication. Physically, Sundown House is almost a replica of Holderness House, a care home in Hull. My mother-in-law spent her last couple of years in there and it’s an exemplary place. It’s not quite like Sundown House in that the latter is a retirement home so my ladies need, for the most part, less input. Both were magn... Read more of this blog post »

“Use your intuition. Picture how things happen, why they happen. Don’t stick rigidly to first impressions, and once you’ve read the rule book, throw it away. Better still, burn the bastard.”
Andrew Barrett, A Long Time Dead

“Some things in life could not be solved or even contemplated by a rational mind. Roger’s mind, however, had ceased being anywhere near rational about half a bottle of Grand Marnier ago.”
Andrew Barrett, Stealing Elgar

“Fear was a wonderful propellant, and such a strong exponent of survival, even at the cost of others. Civility, it seemed, was the first to perish in a disaster.”
Andrew Barrett, Stealing Elgar

“Oh God, please, I have to, please, just once more; I have to see her again. He marched onwards, his crippled leg dragging behind; his good leg hauling his exhausted body through the kind of pain he didn’t think existed. He reached out, grasped clumps of hope with bloodied hands, and pulled himself onwards.”

“No one mentioned the sad piece of tinsel, naked in places, hanging across the chimneybreast, nor that Twelfth Night was a week ago. No one mentioned the two Christmas cards on the mantelpiece. No one mentioned them because inside they were blank.”

Anita Hi Kath, I have just finished Top Banana and left you a review on Amazon and on here. I mean everything I have said about it, I can't remember when I have enjoyed a book so much, you write beautifully, thank you for keeping me entertained in such a wonderful way, can't wait to see what you have in store for us next.

Robert Franks Kath, I just read your review and wanted to say a huge thankyou! And not just for the review. Since I wrote the first book you have been a fantastic help to me in keeping the quality of the writing style to a standard i would otherwise be unable to achieve. A heartfelt thankyou from a very grateful writer :)

I've written a London rain verse, which I've parked on my meet-the-authors thread. Pls cld you remind me of the poetry please thread and I will post the poem there in all it's dripping, squealshing gory.
