THE GREEK ISLANDS ……. A PLACE TO FALL IN LOVE
Get on a plane and fly to Athens. Take a taxi to the Port of Pireas. Sit with a map of the Islands in front of you. Close your eyes, hold your breath and make a wish. As you breathe out, let your index finger land somewhere on the map. Then, open your eyes and discover the destination that awaits you.
You might have to wait all day for the next boat, but what’s the rush? Sit in the sunshine, allow yourself to dream and once onboard lose yourself in the delight of simply watching the light sparkling upon the water. Arriving in the morning you might find yourself in the bustling industry of a fishing village going about its business or, if in the afternoon, to an enchanting sleepy stillness. Amongst the white-washed houses there will be a hotel fresh and bright with cobalt painted window frames and scarlet geraniums in pots. Along the beach there will be restaurants where dark-eyed waiters will tempt you with the catch of the day and there will be wine, there will be olives and there will be bread. Later, one of those dark-eyed waiters may join you at your table…and then… the night is yours.
Postscript: I went for a holiday and ended up staying three months. So much of what I have written since has been influenced by that experience. That’s my story. What will be yours?

Clarry Pennhaligan, low on ambition but high on energy, can’t seem to come up with a proper grown-up plan to kick-start her life. Planning really isn’t her thing. But then she happens upon her true vocation: Snooping. Discovering other people’s secrets and getting paid for it. What could possibly go wrong? Well……as it turns out, just about everything and soon Clarry finds herself in real danger.

About the Author:
Angela Dyson ditched her London life and downsized her home to move to the sticks in Surrey, to follow her dream to become a professional author. She loves to write but to pay the bills (Angela soon discovered that utility companies, bank managers and landlords aren’t known for their generosity and understanding natures,) she had to squeeze the writing in with working for a living. Some of the jobs to which she only gave half her attention have included working for a recording studio and a record label, running a building maintenance company where pretty much the only upside was getting to boss a lot of men about all day, doing a bit of plus size modelling (strictly clothes on) and, for one memorable summer, making a living reading palms on a Greek Island.
