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.

The Lattice Necklace by Pamela Holland

The Lattice Necklace .Pamela has just had her first novel published and I haven't been able to put it down. What a start! It's life through the ages from 1800 to 1959 starting with the well born who have to endure the stigma of mental instability, handicap, rape, consequent illegitimate birth, poverty, rejection through to stability, wealth and success. The story is told through the eyes of five women who love, laugh, cry and face the challenges that the snobbish, blinkered society of the past posed. They are all lovable who inspire great loyalty. I just didn't want to put it down. This Lattice Necklace is interwoven in all their lives though it falls out of sight at times. I had to find out what would become of them next and felt saddened when I came to the end. I feel that there is another volume to come. Well done.
