launches debut novel
LIVERPOOL writer and blogger Estelle
Maher has launch her debut novel at a special event, at Write Blend
Road, Waterloo, Merseyside. The 45 year old mum of 2, had been signing copies of her new book:-
the Ghost' at her official book launch that has taken place at the
independent book shop, on Friday, 21 April 2017.
Estelle, who has dreamed of becoming a published author since she was a
teenager, said she was thrilled to have fulfilled 1 of her lifetime ambitions
and finally have a book in print.
"It has taken several months of hard work writing early in the morning and
late into the night to complete the novel, but it's all been worth it,"
said the independent author. "I'm really proud of what I've achieved and
I'm looking forward to the event on Friday and hope to see as many people there
'Grace and the Ghost' is a book about life, fate and divine intervention. It
combines romance and humour as it follows the journey of a young woman who
becomes haunted by a man named Crowley and finds her long held beliefs about
Heaven and Earth being challenged.
Released on Amazon earlier this month, the book has already climbed its way up
the charts to become an Amazon Bestseller.
Estelle, who lives on the Wirral, said:- "I've been writing on and off
since I was a teenager, scribbling on wallpaper covered exercise books so it
feels amazing to have finally published my 1st book and I'm simply over the
moon to have become an Amazon Bestseller so quickly.
It wasn't until I started a regular blog a few years back that I became more
confident about my writing. Posting regular blogs and receiving positive
feedback greatly encouraged me to continue writing.
Then, I remember thinking 1 day whilst sat at work 'there must be more to life
than this'. Don't get me wrong I wasn't unhappy, just unfulfilled. That night I
drove home and Crowley the ghost popped into my head and he wouldn't go away. It
was like he was nagging me to write his story, so I did."
Commenting on the inspiration for the book Estelle said:- "Grace and the
Ghost is not a ghost story, there is simply a ghost within it. The plot was very
much developed around some of my own personal experiences throughout life.
I've been experiencing things since the age of 5. But it started to become a
daily part of my life at around 11 years old. I used to think that every house I
lived in was haunted, but once I got to my 30's I realised that it wasn't the
houses, it was me.
Some people like to label it as psychic, but I have never applied that to myself
as it has a lot of negativity associated with it. I've just felt I was a bit
like an aerial that could feel the energy of a room more than others. I think
that everyone has an ability of this kind. I do not think I am special or claim
to have a gift, I just think I'm aware of it more than others."
Estelle, who lives with her husband Pete, daughter Chloѐ (18) and son Zack (12),
is currently in the process of penning her 2nd book called:- 'Angel's Rebellion.'
