Completion of The Virtuoso has marked the end of a seven year journey for me. Conceived and written whilst I was pregnant with my third baby (my eldest daughter), the first draft manuscript was then left gathering dust in a drawer until after the birth of baby number four, (my youngest daughter), two years later.

For some inexplicable reason, although I was exhausted and struggling to cope with my expanded family, I thought I’d give myself the challenge of finishing what I started.
