What does a mother do when she outlived her only son and an elderly Greek friend insisted his widow may have played a role in his death? Regardless of the truth, when this happened, I wrote a novel incorporating the traumatic event. It was cathartic, helped me to deal with grief, and to come to terms with the loss.
My son died in 2000 after a “minor” operation during which he developed Swiss cheese-like gangrene on the underside of his stomach and infection took control of his entire body. Months later, I began writing the book featuring the same sleuths from Greek Ghosts because it would be the second in the series of stories of mystery entwined with romance and human traits.
Thanks for contributing this post, Helen! I enjoyed reading your first two pages and your comments about the strategies you used to engage the reader.
My thanks to you for having such an unusual blog. I enjoyed writing it.
I am always fascinated to mystery stories and your story was no exception.Wonderful plot and the relationship between the mother and the son highlights the whole story.
