About Janet Gogerty
I have been writing frantically for 14 years. I am inspired by anything and everything and enjoy writing about ordinary people; but usually they find themselves experiencing strange events!
When I was encouraged to tackle a novel my daughter suggested I use my short story 'Brief Encounters of the Third Kind' as she wanted to know what happened to Emma, whose fate had been left in the air at the end of the story. The novel became a trilogy with Three Ages of Man and finally Lives of Anna Alsop.
Quarter Acre Block was inspired by my family's emigration to Australia.
My most recent novel is called At The Seaside Nobody Hears You Scream. When Toby Channing's girlfriend disappeared without trace he was the last person to see her and the first suspect... He travels England searching for her.
I enjoy writing fiction of any length and have had many short stories published on line. I have published four collections of short stories; my most recent, Someone Somewhere includes two novellas linked to my novel At The Seaside Nobody Hears You Scream.
My website is Tidalscribe.com where I post regular blogs about everything and anything and also flash fiction. You can read more about my books and follow my picture gallery which I update frequently, indulging my love of taking point and shoot photos with my phone.

Brief Encounters - Trilogy or Triangle?
A family saga of three generations and three families set over three years early in the Twenty First Century. A thriller of music, medicine and mystery entwined with tales of unrequited love, love lost and found and love crossing impossible boundaries.

This is the preparallequel to 'Brief Encounters of the Third Kind' and second of the trilogy.
