What’s Her Problem?
I gathered from many sources to write ‘Sweet Secrets’ because I wanted to make it different and give it a message.
Writing as Constance Munday was always going to be a special path. Constance Munday is the rather deep side of me. She is a very romantic girl, but a girl who knows that real romance is not easy to find and that often we have to fight for it. Love is a rollercoaster ride of disappointments and highs as we all know, and it often comes into our life when we least expect it and do not have – how can I put this – a slot for it. This is what happens to Carrie Ann in my novel.
Constance Munday also likes a good character and one who has to fight and expose what she hopes in the end are strong and helpful traits for the reader. I never forget that feeling when I pick up a special book. I might read a hundred, but one often strikes me as having more substance. This is what I so wanted to achieve and hope I have with ‘Sweet Secrets.’ Some of the themes visited in it are tough. Alzheimer’s disease and Carrie Ann’s anxiety are all treated in this book, but I haven’t dwelled on them and have provided just enough insight that you can see how they have coloured my heroine’s life. I didn’t want the read to be too lightweight, I wanted a story strong on background and I wanted to convey what a struggle caring for a sick person can be.
Carrie Ann loves her father as you can see, but she has had to face a mental battle. He has become a particularly challenging man as he grows older and changes immeasurably to become overbearing and domineering when her mother dies. Although, not intentional, his reliance and the way he plays on her emotions, makes Carrie Ann a recluse. As his behaviour worsens he makes her retreat into her secret world of baking and book reading, simply to preserve her sanity.
It’s how she copes with her struggles that is important and is I think a great message. I wanted my heroine to have a very human and not flippant side. I hope I have achieved this. She is not a superwoman, but few of us are. She is also not perfect, as again few of us are. Her task is to unwind the tangled threads she has created. As she does so she becomes stronger and finds her confidence until by the end of the book, she does what would have seemed to Carrie Ann impossible at the beginning. I do hope you like her and empathise with her as much as I do.
