I was working on another book when i thought of this concept. I reasoned a novel about a pandemic would be better received if it came out while we are still experiencing this emergency. I put all my energy into "Pandemic." It is different from my other work, a real story of a strong woman fighting against the odds.

The novel doesn't have the glamour of the desolation series or the out of this world quality of my alien books. Writing a topical piece of work has different satisfaction than something entirely fictional. I used my ability to process current affairs and mixed facts and fantasy to enable the reader to empathise with the scenario which plays out in the text. I made up the sickness which spreads around the world not wanting it to be too similar to what we are experiencing at present.

"Luna," is a again a very personal novel. I was inspired to write this bitter sweet tale when suffering from post-natal depression. I drew upon these experiences mixed fact with fiction, a dash of lust, sex and psychological drama. Stirred it up and voila! Luna was born!

At the core is a mother and daughter parted by humans yet bound by unconditional love. This is not a traditional extraterrestrial book, this goes into the mind, psyche of a young alien woman.

Not for the faint hearted with strong adult sexual themes, but persevere and you will be rewarded with an intriguing tale. Luna is an intense story of prejudice and how the bond of motherly love can challenge the irrational.

Hold on to your hats! This is the fourth and final instalment of my popular Desolation Series! Prepare yourself for the ride of your life, with strong adult subjects! Strictly for over eighteens, the character of Noir is explored in this must have read! Noir, who is Alice's maker, is a lady of colour. Her journey begins on the cotton fields, as a slave, to modern day becoming an international lawyer.

As a writer, my own development, has evolved along side that of the characters I created, as I struggled with my own personal desolation of silence. I was on benefits, to begin with, coping with physical and mental health problems. It has been a roller coaster ride that has ended with me becoming a successful, British, female, Schizophrenic writer! I had closure on multi-dimensional issues, laid my soul bare, enjoyed the thrill of sensations of control, in which it was my time, my way!

I was mistress of my own destiny, pouring everything into this emotional unique read! I learnt never, ever give up, that we all have potential for more than we think, it is really a matter of pushing yourself beyond the boundaries of heaven and hell. We all have our destination, to where only you will know, but learn to love the ride! So there we have it, never give up! If I can, you can! I could cry, but this is what I call a happy beginning! Catch you next month! Lots of love Jane Rowe xx
