Playing with Keys

The Midnight Pianist has become a series … PWK is book 2

Chapter One:

On the first morning that she woke up in her family’s new home, Sandra looked out the bedroom window but all she could see was the neighbour’s brick wall. She sat on the side of her bed to think about it.

In Curradeen, her upstairs bedroom window in the bank residence overlooked the main street, where on countless Saturday mornings she’d watched through her gauzy curtains for Nick Morgan to drive into town, park his dusty ute across the road, and stroll into the newsagency.

All gone now . . .

Gone, Nick and the polocrosse ponies. Gone, the familiar local high school, her dear piano teacher, bicycle rides to the creek. And gone, best friend Emilia, consigned to a papery chaff of letters.

Her parents were happy with the move; she could see it in their faces. It was a good promotion for Don to the Randwick branch of the bank, and Angela was pleased to be back in Sydney after so many years in a country town. While her younger sister Prue danced around with excitement, it was only Sandra who rebelled.

Playing with Keys should be published before 2016… fingers crossed. :)
