Posted by on Jul 21, 2013 in Guest Posts

About the Author, Debbie Martin: I live in the UK, on the south coast in an idyllic thatch cottage. I’m widowed and have two teenage daughters, but don’t let the ‘roses round the door’ image fool you. Since being widowed I’ve done many things, including paragliding off a mountain and internet dating – not that dissimilar actually!

Sliding on the Snow Stone author, Andy Szpuk, tells us about finding the right voice: It was back in 2007 when I conceived the idea of writing Sliding on the Snow Stone. I’d already written a box full of short stories and was developing my writing craft, taking small steps daily, and occasionally, bigger leaps. However, when my father recounted the experiences of his childhood in Ukraine and subsequent journey through the horrors of famine, Soviet Terrors and Nazi brutality...
