Behind Closed DoorsBehind Closed Doors

Book Two, The Gypsy Moon Trilogy

As Starr Linden begins writing a series of syndicated articles on the theme of Behind Closed Doors, she soon realises that the most potent story of all is within her own family.

Her aunt Astrid’s journey to reclaiming motherhood brings her family of origin together, and as she finds a way through the trauma which has eroded her heart for decades, Astrid discovers that, in one way or another, we all live behind closed doors, and that what lives in our heart is visible to the whole world.

In this continuing family saga, Astrid wonders: is it possible to forgive the person who should have protected you?  Can love grow in a barren heart? Is motherhood instinctual, or must it be learnt? Or perhaps, like moss, it doesn’t need roots to grow and thrive.

MosaicMosaic

Mosaic is my debut novel. It is the story of family and friendships, of love and loss. Topaz Lane is an internationally successful children’s illustrator, and boy has she been bruised by love. In fact, she’s sworn off men for life and is mourning the fact that she’ll never have a family. A chance meeting with five women shows her that we all have wounds, and we all have gifts to share.

Bluey's CafeBluey’s Café

by Veronika Sophia Robinson

Cover illustration by Sara Simon www.sarasimon.co.uk

Bluey Miller lives a charmed life in Calico Bay, a small rural town on the east coast of Australia. She built her popular wholefood café from nothing, and it has garnered a well-deserved reputation for world foods. When her mother dies, Bluey discovers that there was far more to her mother’s life than she’d realised. Why so many secrets? As she begins to unravel her mother’s past, she’s left wondering about their relationship. They had been so close over the years, yet now Bluey feels like she didn’t know her at all. Her very identity hangs by a thread. Who am I? she wonders. Who was my mother?

Seemingly insurmountable challenges lie ahead, and Bluey must face them without her mother by her side. She finds strength from her local community and daily nourishment from the welcoming atmosphere of her café, but is this enough? Drawing succour from the Australian bushland around her, friendships, emerging spirituality, a life-changing romance, and the memories of good mother love, Bluey must somehow find enough courage to allow the best of the past to become the foundation for her future. Bluey’s Café is Veronika’s second novel. She lives in rural Cumbria, UK, with her husband and their teenage daughters.

About Veronika

A bushfire had raged through the mountains behind our home ravishing everything in sight. Walking through the charred remains, I had an overwhelming urge to express my desolation; to share the experience with others. I was about ten years of age, and it was after this fire that I realised I wanted to be a writer. I began writing poetry, and throughout school enjoyed creative writing.

At 19, I had a palm reading. The palmist said I would one day earn my living from writing. The journey from there to here has been fascinating, and my many and varied experiences, personally and professionally, all contribute to the words which flow.

My greatest inspiration comes from Nature. I’m always in awe of what she has to offer, and what she has to teach us. I’m grateful for every bird whistle and sunrise, the frost upon grass, fresh water rising from a hidden spring, and the glowing light of a Full Moon in Winter. I’m at my happiest when my hands are in the dark, damp soil, and the Sun shines on my shoulders.

I wrote my first book, Fields of Lavender, a collection of poetry, in 1991. A couple of years later, in 1993, I was commissioned to write a book on the history of the Royal New Zealand Society for the Protection of Animals. I called it The Compassionate Years.

Communication has been a key theme in my life. I talked so much as a young child, that my mum used to send me to the neighbours when her ears got sore! Can’t say I blame her. I was a right little chatterbox. Thank goodness I learned to read. I’ve always loved books. As a child, my head was up in Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree or some other magical place. I dreamed that one day my own children would inherit all the books from my childhood, but alas, I didn’t count on moving countries several times and the impractical nature of transporting books wherever I went. I also remember feeling so strongly that when I grew up I wanted to be a writer so that I could stay home with my children.
