Anita Dawes


Hi, my name is Anita and although I am 70, I am by no means a 'silver surfer'. I have been writing fiction novels for a while now, but never picked up by the mainstream publishers. They all loved what I wrote, but found it hard to slot them into a category! It came tantalisingly close, but no cigar, as they say. After going twelve rounds with various mainstream publishers, I realised I would have to try something else. I saved all of the rejection letters, because most of them had very encouraging comments. If my mother had slapped me as gently when I was a child it wouldn't have hurt half as much! I even wrote to James Herbert once and he was so kind and supportive. Now I am retired and with the help of my sister Jaye, (who is learning to be a 'surfer') I decided to dust off some of my manuscripts and try to achieve the impossible. I am a paper and pencil girl. You could chain me to a computer for years and nothing would happen! Jaye is managing to cope with it, but then she has much more patience than I do. (and she is as stubborn as a mule!) They say you are never too old to learn, but in my case never is another word for infinity!

Not technically minded, so bear with me, I usually get there in the end...
