INNOCENT TEARS has been re-released.
It has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

Here's another little snippet.

THANK YOU

Advice is what we ask for when we already 
know the answer, but wish we didn't.”



I've moved forward a little ... Flynn McCormack is now sitting in the 
hotel cafe with Teresa and William Gibbs. This is the start of their conversation.


“What is this, Teresa?” he asked without looking at her.
“There’s no reason to get testy,” Teresa countered, signalling for William to join them as he entered the café.
“Look, I haven’t got all day. I’m very busy.”
Flynn raised his head slightly and nodded at William, who sat down opposite him. As he studied the man, he wondered if it was life with Teresa that made him look so much beyond his age. He couldn’t be older than sixty. Flynn took another sip and the corner of his mouth twitched into a grin as he remembered William’s fiftieth birthday party in the Gibbs’ backyard just outside Launceston – and his stomach ached as he thought of Sarah. It had been a while since memories had popped up in his head, but when he did, he missed her. William reminded Flynn so much of her.

  1. I hope that's a compliment rather than a sorrow. Teresa doesn't strike me as a easy woman to live with. Great snippet, Iris. :)

  2. Touching sentiments...I can see how one might wonder if life with Theresa would age someone prematurely, though. ;-)

  4. Sounds like a meeting that wasn't anticipated by the men. I wonder what Teresa is getting at and also why would she have a bad influence on William's health.

  6. Love this line! "As he studied the man, he wondered if it was life with Teresa that made him look so much beyond his age."

    That speaks volumes about Teresa's character. I wonder who this Sarah girl is now though, someone special to him?

  8. Interesting comparison between the feelings of "harshness" I get about Teresa and the "softness" of his memories of Sarah.

  11. I'm getting the impression William is related to Sarah. This could definitely trigger an onslaught of memories!

  14. I know how those memories can sneak up on you. Especially those of your loved ones that have passed on. Sometimes the memories can make you smile and others make you long to hear their voice one more time. Emotional snippet. Makes me want to know more about Sarah.
