Author A S Bielby

About me I was born in Stockton on Tees to a family living in Middlesbrough. We moved to a village near Whitby in North Yorkshire where I spent many years. I graduated from the University of East Anglia, worked as a Careers Advisor ending up as head of a university careers service. I have two children, two stepchildren and a lovely grandson. The children are grown-up with their own lives.

My husband and I came to Cyprus to live in 2007 after a hectic work life ‘to live the dream’, having finally retired from the property management business.

I have, for many years, wanted to write a book but I didn’t really know how to do it. Having met a member of the Paphos Writers Group, I decided to apply to join so have had a lot of practical help as well as encouragement to write. I am now slowly writing my novel as well as short stories. I met Glynis Smy (author of ‘Ripper, My Love’) recently, whose encouragement and help have given me a new lease of life..

My book ‘Payback Time’ is set in the North of England, as well as the south west of Cyprus. It is a romance/ family drama; how they meet and endeavour to overcome adversity, experience adventures on the way. Will they all make it intact through dark days? Time will tell.

Jessica Bell: Book Launch

Jessica Bell has done it again and provided a really good grammar book for the beginner like me. I felt it really spoke to me. Her easy conversational style is easy to read and relate to. Very useful to have beside you to refresh your memory when you are more experienced too. It doesn't preach but make you feel that she too had the same problems and that she's pleased to pass on what she has learnt. It so good to know that she too has bad such problems, so I'm not such an ignoramus. We all have to learn. Thank you Jessica. I love the size too as I can put it in my handbag if I have an appointment and may have to wait. NO wasted time.

 'Like Show Not Tell' I promoted it to the Paphos Writers' Group. No reservations about doing so as I can recommend it wholeheartedly. I hope you sell loads and loads.
