Author has written 16 stories for Foyle's War, Alibi, 2003, and Bleak House, 2005.
I think it was 2004 when I discovered Foyle's War on the 'History Canada' cable channel, and then on PBS, and knew it was something quite special. My son, a teenager at the time, can only blame himself, when one day he pointed out to me 'that actor from Foyle's War' on a rerun episode of Frost (starring David Jason). It was his remark that started me on an investigation into the work of 'that actor' and what is, at this point, a decade-long fascination with the roles of Michael Kitchen.
When I delved into his career I realized I'd seen, through the years, every screen performance of his that one could see in Canada, from The Brontës of Haworth to Dandelion Dead to Enchanted April, to Out of Africa and Oliver Twist. The man is definitely Quietly Enigmatic (See what I did there? No? Google it.), and mesmerising in his subtle performances. Also ...quite a clever bloke; irons in the fire, and all that.
I've been writing for enjoyment since my preteen years, took a 17-year hiatus to 'gather material and life experience' (marriage, children, various kinds of work, another degree, a new career) and then started again, working on short stories, pastiches and fan fiction. I've even been bashing away at a novel for quite a few years - but then, who isn't, eh?!
Thanks to everyone who takes the time to read - and does me the honour of reviewing - my stuff!
Reviews are nice. Really like reviews.
Reviews? Yes, very much appreciate 'em. Life's blood to a writer, actually.
Did I mention that it really only takes a minute to post a review? :o)
