Is doing cartwheels. (well very careful ones as I am also very high on pain meds atm. But that's another story)
I've signed a contract for a novella as part of the Pelican Book Group 2012 Christmas Extravaganza. Called An Aussie Christmas Angel it's based on a true story. Names have been changed to protect the innocent. Although those in the know will automatically know who's who. And no one dies. Well I did promise to be as true to life as I could.
Here's the blurb:
On an extended holiday from the UK John Connington finds himself in Sydney with nowhere to stay. Only a telephone number from a friend of someone his sister works with offering him a place to stay. Trusting that God knows what He’s doing, John rings and asks a total stranger if he can stay.
Jo can’t believe the audacity of the man, yet when her flat mate knows of this arrangement there is nothing she can do. She’s not prepared for the avalanche of feelings produced by seeing John. Not impressed by God’s sense of humour she fights how she feels until just before John leaves for home, both their lives change forever.
Can a long distance relationship really work or is God just teasing them both?
