Book Completion…and Sally Cline

Today I saw my mentor, biographer, Dr. Sally Cline. She approved my final chapters and it looks very much as if my memoir is almost completed.

Sally is a brilliant mentor and I have learned so much from her. She is a born teacher and mistress of her craft. I always come away from our meetings with fresh motivation and insight.

Sally’s own books are beautifully written, scholarly yet accessible, and have been responsible for keeping me up late at night when I should have been sleeping. Her latest book is ‘Dashiell Hammett – Man of Mystery’ and I read that at a sitting.
‘One of Us is Lying’, her recently published collection of short stories, has an unexpected thread running through them which is both intriguing and satisfying.

I am honoured to be mentored by Sally.


About Judy Darby

I am currently working on a memoir which I began for my MA in Creative Writing (Nonfiction). It is nearing completion. The most important people in my life are my seven grandchildren, James, Lucy, Emma, Eleanor, Owen, Michael and Tommy - and their parents of course.

    Judy, I admire you so much. You have persevered through all that has been thrown at you and now you have a beautifully written book that will be passed down through the ages.

    It tells a true story of a family surviving the war years (WW2) and the Mother of this family of eight children, slowly at first and then finally becoming a Mother who became someone we feared and never knew from one moment to another who would bare the brunt of her temper..

    I am so proud to be able to call you my sister Jude. Shirley
