This week I’ve invited Maria Savva to discuss her latest book, Delusion and Dreams, and what she is working on next.
Maria Savva lives and works in London. She studied Law at Middlesex University and The College of Law. She is a lawyer, although not currently practising law. She writes novels and short stories in different genres, including drama, psychological thriller, and family saga. Many of her books and stories are inspired by her years working as a lawyer, although she has not written a courtroom drama to date. Her most recent novel is Haunted, a crime fiction/psychological thriller.
Delusion and Dreams are twelve stories of betrayal, greed, revenge, deception, dreams, and courage about struggling to find our way and discovering what we see is not necessarily all there is. This short story collection takes you into the grey area, because the world is never just black and white. One person’s delusion is another person’s dream.
Angela: Thank you for stopping by on your blog tour. You are an accomplished author of novels and short stories. Delusion and Dreams is a short story collection. What are you working on next?
Maria: At the moment, I am editing another collection of short stories. I wrote the short stories after finishing work on Delusion and Dreams.
The new collection will be called, ‘3’, and I’m planning to release it as soon as I finish editing. Editing can take a while. When I started editing Delusion and Dreams, I had thought it wouldn’t take long but it ended up taking about 2 months! Of course, I do have to fit my writing around a full time job, so that’s why it always takes a bit longer than planned.
The stories in ‘3’ are called, ‘What The Girl Heard’, ‘Never To Be Told’, and ‘The Bride’. They are all a bit otherworldly, so they tie in together in that sense. But really I didn’t set out with any theme in mind for the stories. I’m very pleased with the stories and they embrace the darker side of my writing which seems to be very prominent at the moment.
Angela: Congratulations and good luck with both Delusion and Dreams and your upcoming collection 3.
