Norris Writing

The thoughts and publications of Chris and Val Norris

I was delighted when my novel, In the Long Run, was recently accepted for publication by Cambria Books. During my career as a Materials Engineer and academic I had published five textbooks and many scientific papers, but this was different. Conjuring up and crafting this story, and breathing life into its characters, was something I was doing purely for my own pleasure and gratification. It was a huge thrill when the book was validated by a respected publisher agreeing to publish it.

The idea for the book was generated by the good advice ‘when you start writing, write about what you know.’ So what did I know about? I came up with marathon running, death (I’m a volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Care) and pubs. Add in the complexities of relationships and it seemed that In the Long Run was born.
