Author has written 19 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, including The Brontës of Haworth, Dandelion Dead, Enchanted April, The Buccaneers, Caught on a Train and Oliver Twist, as well as many of his big screen films. Yet somehow the spark of interest didn't ignite into a warm glow of appreciation until Foyle's War. The man is definitely Quietly Enigmatic (to see the fan discussion board of that name, simply append dot ca), 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!
Viewer stats are gratifying, but it's reviews that keep me going.
And I very much appreciate 'em.
Did I mention that it only takes a minute to post a review? :o)
