I see that I have not posted a blog since 2010. Shameful. A lot has happened since 2010. for Starters, I had my first novel published this spring. That was an amazing experience.
It has been classified as Historical fiction but I think it works as literary fiction as well. Here is a short blurb about the book. Through The Cane Fields is the story of two young sisters living a life of privilege in Apartheid era South Africa. Delia Hallowell is content with her care free, luxurious life until she meets a boy named Thomas. As the son of the cook, Thomas is separated by the divide of class and race. As their friendship grows over time, so does the realization that they cannot be together. We see how both sisters try to navigate their world. Susan is self absorbed and grasping and Delia is kindhearted and intelligent with a thirst for knowledge and a keen desire to be educated and to make something of her life. They both face trials and tribulations as their world changes around them. Delia must make a choice between her true feelings and her family’s expectations. I hope you'll check it out.
