About the author:
Although this is a romantic fictional novel most of the characters are based on real people and how they react to various situations. Of course being fiction I have used some creative license with the names and places but the book still remains close to the truth.
What inspired you to write your book?
I wanted to write a romantic novel that creates a new genre by being thought provoking and at the same time enlightening, as the central character is forced to re-examine his whole life and motivations after a love affair.
Here is a short sample from the book:
On the surface, John Mason appeared to be a model of success as he turned his BMW into the driveway of his immaculately kept home. With the press of a button on the dashboard the iron gates gave a jerk then gently parted and, as if anticipating his entry, the left hand garage door at the top of the driveway began rising in sync. It had not always been like this. John had in fact come from very humble beginnings. Not only that but as an only child, he had spent much of his early years amusing himself. His parents had given him love and produced a very bright child and although able to meet his basic day-to-day needs, they had not appreciated his want for higher intellectual stimulation. Things were to get even worse for John when he reached his teenage years. His father was a plumber but a lousy businessman. He had tried to run his own small plumbing business but went bankrupt and almost had to sell their modest family home.
