New day, new photo

I’ve been away from home all week, filming for Ignoring Gravity: a book trailer and an author interview in which I talk about my idea for the novel, adoption in the 1960s, and the symbolism of trees. I also have a new portrait photo, which I’m rather pleased with.

For one thing, you can’t see me shivering… the blue sky gave way to grey, then wind, then rain… and secondly I love the setting. One of our locations was the most beautiful garden with a [leafless] tree, the trunk of which was surrounded by a circular wooden seat.

I hope you like my new photo as much as I do!


  1. Very pleased to meet you, Sandra. The photo is super – not at all cheesy as so many author portraits are (sorry but it’s true). The very best of luck with ‘Ignoring Gravity’.
