Living mostly on the UK South coast, she has already invested in her ultimate retirement plan – a farmhouse in the majestic, mystery-filled Scottish Highlands where she retreats to write when she can find time.

Call it 'muse' if you will - if it's present, the only restriction on speed is how fast I can type. If it isn't, it's like wading through treacle.(less)

Back in the days when authors were expected to produce one book a year, no problem. Now readers expect books faster than that, and I just can't do it. I've tried, believe me, but my creative clock seems set to come up with all the ideas I need for a novel over a one year period, and it's not showing any signs of speeding up.(less)

Billy Ninefingers (Billy's Revenge)Billy Ninefingers by Connie J. Jasperson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Billy was settled in the mercenary lifestyle – a bit of danger, a lot of waiting around, camaraderie with his fellow Rowdies, and the hope of one day persuading Bess to marry him, although that seemed rather a longshot.

What he didn’t expect, was to be attacked by the captain of another mercena...

“It’s just as well I’m not claustrophobic. Even so, being held captive in a bottle was not how I’d planned to spend my weekend. It was also one of the most undignified positions I’ve ever been in; a water sprite can be squished down pretty small, but it doesn’t mean we enjoy the process.”
Deborah Jay, Desprite Measures
