Debbie Robson and her work on the SWH

As a writer, I am fascinated by the first half of the last century, particularly with little known events such as the Macedonian Front of WWI. When I discovered in 2010 that Australian doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers and orderlies served in Salonika and Serbia during the war, I began to research and write my manuscript The Grey Silk Purse. In 2011 I began my blog chronicling researching and writing the manuscript. In 1920 my main character Miss Summerville has lost her memory. What she has forgotten (among other things) is driving an ambulance for the Scottish Women’s Hospitals and the Serbian Army during 1917 and 1918. I have been inspired by the life of Olive Kelso King and also the memoirs of Dr Emslie Hutton and Elsie Corbett. I have also been researching the war experiences of Dr Mary de Garis and Dr Agnes Bennett.At the moment I am on the hunt for an agent for The Grey Silk Purse and working on my new manuscript set in Paris and Sydney during the 1920s. The author of Tomaree, a WWII love story set in Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia and Crossing Paths: the BookCrossing novel inspired by that wonderful website  There is more about both books at with links to buy. I am a booklover, bookcrosser and firm believer in synchronicity. There is no such thing as coincidence!
