Book Savvy Spotlight on Jeremy Lousada

Bringing you exclusive interviews with authors featured in the Book Savvy Newsletter.Our Guest is Jeremy Lousada*
Enjoy the interview.

Q1.  Can you tell us about yourself and your book 'Two Dachshunds at Troy'?I'm seventy, have been married for forty two years; have never not owned a dog and love boats and water. The book is the true-life story of two of my dogs and their travels, making, of course some allowances, for occasions on which we might have misinterpreted each other.

Q2. What inspired you to write 'Two Dachshunds at Troy'?Love. Some famous author once said that anyone who writes a book does so to make money (and by inference to get it published). This book was the exception. I wrote it as a present for my wife and because I wanted to do it while events were fresh in my mind. I never tried to publish it until re-reading it some years later I thought it might be enjoyed by others who have loved a dog.

Q3. What emotion do you seek to evoke in your readers as they read this book?I think that I hope that they will feel they know my dogs and that it will remind them of good times they had with dogs they loved. However, originally of course I wrote it for myself.

In one moment, their fate was decided

The Derby Telegraph invites readers to submit short stories. Here is a piece by Philip Neale (pen name - Neal James), titled: 'In one moment, their fate was decided'

"To his right, standing in front of the teller, was a man clad in black, the gun in his hand pointing straight at the teller's head."
MICHAEL O'Reilley was going to apologise to his family. Apologise for all the wasted years he had inflicted upon each of them and somehow beg their forgiveness for the emotional anguish which he had caused.
Jennifer, his wife of 22 years, had suffered most over the past three of those, and it was to her that he was now hurrying, heart and mind filled to the brim with remorse and self-loathing for the humiliation which he had heaped upon her during that time...
