Why I wrote this book
I’ve written all my life – fact, fiction, lots of commercial material for my businesses as well as for clients - and inspiration’s a funny thing. Sometimes it’s there, all hale and hearty, other times you can just glimpse it in the distance, palely loitering and not wanting anything to do with you. However, when it came to Relatively Strange, none of the usual rules seemed to apply, I simply started it off and then it took over and went exactly the way it wanted.
Growing up and family life has its difficulties for everyone and it’s so tricky to know what’s normal if you’re not!
Stella certainly has no hesitation filing herself in the ‘unusual’ drawer, but it's only when she discovers she's not unique, that what up until now has merely caused extraordinary blips in an ordinary life, acquires a whole new dimension.
Forced to call on resources she didn’t know she possessed and thrust headlong into the violence of a situation for which nothing could have prepared her, she’s suddenly face to face with the stark reality of medical experimentation and its horrifying consequences.
But in a world of uncertainties, one thing is beyond doubt - this hero stuff just isn't her. Normal, or as near as damn it, is what she's after and if that means smothering her instincts, building her shielding and adjusting her expectations well, so be it. At least she'll know, should she slip off the wagon occasionally, it'll be through choice, not chance and to suit herself. However, isn't it a fact, just when you think you've got yourself sorted, life turns round and bites you?
