My novel is hot off the press!

December 21, 2014
Girl on the GangwayI finally got round to writing a book,  and since there are at least two other established authors called David Wishart, I went with DC Wishart. After all, others, such as JK Rowling and EL James, have got by using initials.
One of the joys of being onboard a cruise ship is sitting on a deckchair with a book. And why not one about cruising?

I have noted that although more than 20 million passengers go to sea every year, there are few novels on the subject. And in the light of some of the experiences I wanted to share, it had to be a novel!


A good friend read the book and came up with this description:
There are few experiences more liberating than pleasure-seeking on a cruise-ship. As the anchors are raised, so the inhibitions are dropped. As a veteran travel writer with more than 200 voyages under his belt, DC Wishart can fairly claim to have seen it all. This saucily comic romp across the dance-floors, through the bars and between the cabin sheets is a vividly authentic account of the cruising and schmoozing lifestyle.


But there is more to Girl on the Gangway than that. Wishart’s tale has a sombre undercurrent. Cathy Robertson’s Vietnam War pilot husband is still, after ten years, officially ‘Missing in Action’. Is he alive? As she embarks on a cruise ship that will free her from the goldfish bowl that is home, she wonders if she will ever find the man she has never stopped loving. Or will she finally succumb to her handsome new suitor on the high seas? 

Girl on the Gangway is available in both paperback and Kindle editions on Amazon, and through several other eBook retailers:
Barnes & Noble Nook
