Elizabeth - Press Release

Amelia writes fiction that incorporates different aspects of the ‘witch’ phenomena, but is also a serious writer about the subject. Her first book to be published is entitled ‘Elizabeth’ and it is part of the ‘Evening Wolf’ series. The story, set in the 1950s, is about a young woman who is accused of being a witch by the backward thinking community she has entered. The story follows her through the ordeals she suffers and how she copes with them.

 

Amelia writes…

Since my earliest recollections, I have been acutely aware of the injustices there are in this world and particularly of man’s inhumanity to man. I was born some years after the Second World War had ended, but close enough to it to experience some of its legacy for our country and particularly for the east end of London, which is where my parents moved to when I was two years old. As youngsters we played on bombsites and we grew up with stories of the war and accounts of its atrocities.

 

It was in my early twenties when I first began to read about the dreadful treatment of people, mainly women, in the past, who were accused of being witches. I felt very upset reading the accounts of the torture and despicable things that were done to these poor souls in the name of religion or God, or something.

How could one human being be so cruel and so unbelievably wicked towards another? Who actually were the evil ones here? As I have grown older, I have sadly come to the conclusion that there is still such cruelty in this world and people, who, given the right circumstances and situations, could behave like this.

 

The witch hunting of the 1600s that saw hundreds of thousands of men, women and children tortured and executed and the dreadful extermination of millions of innocent human beings during the 1940s might appear to be a thing of the past. But intolerance, ignorance and brutality, born out of superstition, fear, greed and perversion, unfortunately seem to be as much a part of our humanness as love, kindness and compassion.

 

In the Evening Wolf series of stories that I have written, I try to explore some of the basic human frailties that can dwell within many of us and highlight how dangerous it is for us to lose our humanity towards our fellow man.

This series of stories I dedicate to my fallen sisters. It is time to even up the score a little.
