Such talent..such insight..seem to have graced your life, Hilary…a lovely amalgam of art and science. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview. My favorite take-away: “looking after others and finding the fun in life…”
Thank you. I have had a good time, but I also have to laugh at how ‘good’ a life can look when condensed and selected from by a skilled writer such as Sally.
This is very interesting: I didn’t know you were at work on another novel. Good luck with that!
A also detect a quote from my review of Unseen Unsung. I can’t remember if I’ve been quoted like this before, but if I haven’t there’s a first time for everything.
At present rate of progress the next novel will be written in the nursing home.
The quote was entirely Sally’s selection, taken, I believe, from Amazon. Should there be a name attached? I am not sure of the etiquette here.
I don’t care about the name – just nice to see she selected it.
Such a fulfilling life and some strong messages from the past. Proving people wrong seems to have been rather a success. What a rich life you have led.
I’ve been exceptionally lucky in my family (parents, brothers, husband and children) and in many of my enterprises – though I also spent many years being chided as a perpetual student and living close to the breadline. Some things undoubtedly get better as we get older.
Your talent amazes me, Hilary. A PhD, even. But your heart is bulging with emotions on your father’s horrid encounter with imprisonment. I am sure your feelings will flow to your keyboard as you write about their lives.
The gods have been very kind to me, so I had chances that others don’t get. Yes, the men on the railway had a grim time, but I hope also to write about the positive things that came out of my father’s imprisonment.
I loved reading more about your life Hilary, I love your determination and life long learning, changes of direction and family 😊.
Have a fabulous Easter, my best wishes
Have a wonderful Easter yourself, your family have so much going for it too in all generations. Have fun.
