Welcome back! As Christmas fast approaches and (some of us) are looking for that ‘perfect gift,’ might I suggest a great book? Today I have the pleasure of hosting talented author, Robbie Cheadle!

  1. I went over and read the interview. I enjoyed learning even more about your book than I already knew. I was startled that anyone thought there was no plot. When I think about many of the books I loved as a kid I guess there was no plot either in the way I think of it now. But I was totally engaged reading about other children in different times and places, just as takes place in your book.

    1. Thank you, Elizabeth. This is really good to know. I was a bit surprised that some readers didn’t seem to understand the nature of a book like this but we all have our own reading preferences. I have always read books about people’s lives like Little Women, Anne of Green Gables and the Little House books. I find people’s lives fascinating.

  2. Great article Robbie. I was shocked to read that you had readers complain no plot. I felt that book read as a memoir even though fictionalized, and memoir isn’t a thriller read so I would just take those comments as misinformed. :)x

    1. Thank you, Debby. It is a fictionalised biography and I do market it as such. I don’t take reviews to much to heart although I do love good ones, of course. I assess comments such as these and take a view as to whether they are valid and can help me improve as a writer or not. If not, I don’t worry about them. Thanks for adding your thoughts. I appreciate it.
