New Book Finished - Hurrah!

People of the Great Journey, the book I was born to write, is finished. It's an adult fairy tale, a work of "spiritual fiction," the book I have most enjoyed writing in my life to date. I also think it is the kind of book that you curl up with in an armchair by the fire, for a delicious read. The final scene is set by moonlight at the Callanish Stones, as shown here in this beautiful image. (Found it on the web, but haven't been able to find it again since so can't credit photographer. Apologies! If it's yours, let me know and I'll add your name here.)
