The Story Behind ‘Curtain-Twitchers’

Aah, ‘The Curtain Twitcher’s Handbook’ and the lovely Daisy. I miss Daisy. She was such fun to write.

I have no idea where this one came from ( a common theme in my writing!). A girl whose curtains talk to her? Curtains? Really? When the God of Curtain-Twitching spoke to Daisy, nobody was more surprised than me! It soon became obvious that I wasn’t going to be able to shut the curtains up, or Daisy come to think of it.

Of her own accord, Daisy May started to rip her own life to shreds. I couldn’t stop her. She completely took over and I stood back and watched, and hoped she’d come through it all in one piece. The tinker’s curse didn’t help, but luckily the boy next door did.

The first draft of this book took only six weeks to belt out. The revisions another six months. It’s the fastest book I’ve ever written and the one that flows the best, in my opinion.

Some people ask if I’m like Daisy, or used to be. No. Definitely not. Unfortunately, I’m more like her mum.
