My name is Yvonne Hendrie. As my 50th birthday approached, I decided to pursue my dream to write a novel. “The Water Bailiff’s Daughter” was published just after my 54th birthday. Along the way, I had poetry and pieces of short fiction published in the well-respected literary magazines “Dream Catcher” and “The Dawntreader”. It’s never too late! My second novel, “The Iron Brooch”, will be published in 2022.
