HIDDING by JENNY MORTON POTTS

 

 
A gripping psychological thriller with
chilling twists, from a unique new voice.

 

 

Keller Baye and Rebecca Brown live on
different sides of the Atlantic. Until she falls in love with him, Rebecca
knows nothing of Keller. But he’s known about her for a very long time, and now
he wants to destroy her.

 

 

This is the story of two families. One
living under the threat of execution in North Carolina. The other caught up in
a dark mystery in the Scottish Highlands. The families’ paths are destined to
cross. But why? And can anything save them when that happens?

1) What inspired you
to write this book? 
  

 

The horrific
consequences of children who are abandoned, is a subject which I believe needs
all of our attention. We ignore situations at our peril. This is what I burned
to explore. There is so much that we could all easily do to improve the
‘circumstances’ of children.
 

 

2) How long did it
take you to write the book? 
 

 

My books typically
take about 6 months to write but a further 6 months to a year to fully
percolate and form till I’m happy to let them go out into the world alone.
 

 

3) Coffee or
Tea? 
 

 

Both. I prefer coffee
but I drink more tea. This is because I think tea is better for me. Or perhaps
to withhold treats till I think I deserve them!
 

 

4) Describe your
special writing place 
 

 

I have a cabin in the
garden which I bought on Ebay and it came from Lithuania. It is painted a blue
grey and I love it. Sometimes it is used for guests to sleep in. My son also
paints in there, so it’s a lively, happy place but calm when I am there
writing.
 

 

5)Are you a plotter or
a pantser?
 

 

I am both. I think for
the first few years, I was a total pantser and this was perhaps necessary, to
give myself the freedom to write what had to be written. Now I am free of my
own ‘circumstances’ and have a cooler eye for structure, for organisation. But
characterisation will always be my overriding passion.
 


 

Jenny Morton Potts was born in a smart,
dull suburb of Glasgow where the only regular excitement was burglary. Attended
a smart, dull school where the only regular excitement was the strap. Worked in
smart, dull sales and marketing jobs until realising she was living someone
else’s life.

 

Escaped to Gascony to make gîtes. Knee
deep in cement and pregnant, Jenny was happy. Then autism and a distracted
spine surgeon who wanted to talk about The Da Vinci Code, wiped out the order.
Returned to wonderful England – and unlikely ever to leave again – Jenny, with
assistance from loyal hound, walked and swam her way back to manageable health.

 

Jenny would like to see the Northern
Lights but worries that’s the best bit and should be saved till last. Very
happily, and gratefully, partnered for 28 years, she ought to mention, and
living with inspirational child in Thaxted, Essex.
