My Next Book. By Owen Zupp.

Owen Zupp - Saturday, December 30, 2017


My next book? It is still a very frequently asked question. As mentioned previously, I am writing the story of my mother's life

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 years after the war's end.

This is a tale of love and loss and a lady that forged her own frontiers in a very different time.

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 am well into the first draft and her character and emotion is definitely coming alive through her words.

I'll continue to keep you posted as I venture along this writing journey.
