My Next Book.

Owen Zupp - Monday, April 03, 2017


My next book? A very frequently asked question. :-)

Well, after some soul-searching, I have ventured down the path of writing my mother's life story.

Edith Blight, as she was known before marrying my father, was a country girl from Kempsey. A WW2 'Hush Hush Girl' (radar operator) among a number of other things, her life was dramatically marked by tragedy until she met my dad six year's after the war's end.

This is a tale of love and loss and a lady that forged her own frontiers.

Much of the research was completed a few years ago and I interviewed mum a number of times before her passing. Today these files are stored on my computer. However, mum was also a prolific note taker, diarist and letter writer with numerous photo albums to support her words. As such, I have a sea of research material, which is a tremendous position to be in. Reading her notes in her own hand, I can still hear her voice - it's a wonderful feeling.

I'll keep you posted along this writing journey.
