Hey Everyone!! :-)
Today, LG Surgeson is here to tell us about Any Kind Of Velvet, her contribution to the Gems of Strength anthology, which also includes Bettina, Angel Strong, Deep In The Valley, Focal Point, The Road To Happiness, A Mother's Heart, Combustion, Vanquish, Undeniable Love, Childish Things, Fox, and Burned Toast. I'll let LG, herself, tell you about herself and her story. :-)
As he questioned me, and I failed to give him any of the answers he was hoping for, the whole saga began to unfold in front of me. In the ten years I had spent with her, it had never ever occurred to me that her birth certificate wouldn’t say Myrtle. It had never come up, it’s not something you would normally mention: excuse me pumpkin, but just in case you kill yourself, do you have any proof of your identity? No wonder the police were confused, they had the body of a woman who technically didn’t exist. I would have laughed had I not been hurting so much.
LG Surgeson is an author and teacher who lives in a cottage by a river in Mid Wales with her long-suffering partner and their two cats. She writes fantasy and fiction novels and blog articles about education, mental health and whatever else has got under skin this week. She has completed five novels in the Black River Chronicle, her fantasy adventure series that follows a rag-tag band of mercenaries, do-gooders and slightly bemused wizards as they try and save the world, repeatedly. She is also working on several books about her experiences as a teacher.
She writes in the spare time she creates by avoiding the outside world and ignoring the housework. The cats like to help. They aren't good at it.
