Hache L. Jones was born in the North West of England and lived there all of her adult life until retirement.
Once retired, she and her husband moved to the south of France to live in the holiday home they'd bought some years earlier.
Her working life was varied to say the least. In fact, she describes herself as a “Jack of all trades and master of none”.
Hache has worked, in chronological order, as a secretary, data input clerk, computer programmer / systems analyst, systems specialist, theatrical agent, psychiatric nurse, and finally, a research analyst for an organisation that researches the hazards associated with having a blood transfusion.
For some, retirement is supposed to be a time to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures, something she never had time to do during her busy working life; reading, handicrafts and so on.
This wasn't for Hache and the realisation soon hit her that she was, in effect, passing time until death. This revelation resulted in her taking a long hard look at herself, and asking herself what had given her the most pleasure in her life. Answer: All things related to theatre and film.
So now, she uses the knowledge that she gained of the industry while she represented actors, in order to promote the work of independent film makers, their cast and crew. As a direct result of this work, she met the larger than life horror director character Kensington Gore, and his creator Graeme Parker, who invited her to submit a short story for an anthology he was putting together for charity.
Hache was delighted to be given the chance, and was curious to know whether she had any talent in that area. She had written, or co-written, countless academic journal articles, but never creative writing.
She is unutterably grateful to all concerned. especially to Kensington Gore, for that opportunity. Although she recognises that her contribution was "not the finest piece of writing ever, it was a first attempt after all", seeing it in print gave her the ambition to write something longer.
The result is “A Fractured Understanding”.
A tense, psychological story about a missing child that has a bit of a twist in the tale that will leave you reeling.
We at Kensington Gore Publishing hope this will be the first of many great works by Hache, who is not only a great writer but a wonderful friend and human being.
Hache is the first of our writers to be published. In January 2014 published her electrifying debut novella A Fractured Understanding. It has received rave reviews and done well on best selling lists on Amazon.
She is currently working on her debut novel, hofefully to be published by us some time this year.
