…much is spoken and written about staying with yer own scribbling ‘JONGRR’ as an author… others grasp the nettle and venture into other styles… the results can be gratifying, for both authors and readers… this ol’ Jurassic shares the belief if that yeez ‘write’, the WURD, ‘JONGRR’ is redundant… fr’example, my own wee masterpieces are unapologetically crime thrillers, with murder, mayhem, and assorted violence to spare, whilst my blog writing is (supposedly) lighter-touched, amusing and occasionally p’raps marginally educational… vive la difference!… I therefore welcome my pal, Author, Christoph Fischer with this insightful example of a quill-scraper breaking the bonds of ‘type’… have a wee look…
“THE HEALER” is my very first thriller and a huge contrast to the historical novels and family dramas I have written so far. I never had plans to make an excursion into the genre but one day, last year, my partner had a dream that formed the basis for the plot of “THE HEALER”. We spent a long car journey discussing the dream’s potential for a story and the various ways of how that story could be told. I began writing the next day, with a different concept in mind (which was much closer to my previous books).
Around the 80 page mark however I suddenly got the idea for “THE HEALER” as it is now and fell in love with it. I went excitedly back to page 1 and re-wrote my draft into this thriller/mystery story.
As a writer the challenge has been surprisingly enjoyable, a fantastic and fully unexpected experience. It’s been great to write purely for entertainment and fun, to check for inconsistencies and plot holes in a completely different way and to wonder all along if I really could pull this off. Well, I will leave that up for you to judge.
As with my own reading, occasionally it’s nice to spice things up and try something differently. I fell in love with the story and hope that you’ll enjoy it, too.
When advertising executive Erica Whittaker is diagnosed with terminal cancer, western medicine fails her. The only hope left for her to survive is controversial healer Arpan. She locates the man whose touch could heal her but finds he has retired from the limelight and refuses to treat her. Erica, consumed by stage four pancreatic cancer, is desperate and desperate people are no longer logical nor are they willing to take no for an answer. Arpan has retired for good reasons, casting more than the shadow of a doubt over his abilities. So begins a journey that will challenge them both as the past threatens to catch up with him as much as with her. Can he really heal her? Can she trust him with her life? And will they both achieve what they set out to do before running out of time?
