Two Shakes of a Dead Lamb’s Tail
Two Shakes of a Dead Lamb’s Tail
This is a memoir about my family’s life which is a humorous and sometimes moving story about the ups and downs of living in isolation and how adversity moulds character, builds inner strength and makes you take a long hard look at your priorities.

Noreen Reeves

Writer and Author

After spending three years bumbling around with pen and paper I completed my memoir in 2013. I didn’t know how to be a writer but after many false starts the story began to jell. The bug had bitten. Now I’m retired, writing is my new love. I’m an avid reader of true life stories, historical novels and good fiction. Being able to convey an interesting and entertaining yarn is the basis of my template.

You have to have a thick skin being a writer, but the process of unfolding the thoughts and searching for the right description or phrase, to get the message across, can be a hair-tearing or white light moment. Either way, the challenge is there for the taking.

What I can offer my reader is a view into my world, to experience some of what life is like when you are placed outside your comfort zone. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not a how to survive in difficult circumstances – more an enjoyable and engaging read on how different life is, living isolated. Enjoy!
