What I, Jane Thomas, resolves to do this year.

Jane Thomas here on the First Day of a brand New Year.

The past twelve months have been challenging to say the least. My step-brother Jamie was murdered, I ended up in a mental hospital and I’ve just finished my first term at the Time Police Academy. My step-father is the Academy’s Commander and Jamie had graduated joint top of his class with his best mate Dylan Roberts. So there’s not a lot of pressure on me to succeed!

Just six months ago the Academy was the last place on earth or beyond that I would have wanted to be, now it feels like home. True it is like a home where you are constantly under the microscope but I’ve also got a new best friend who’s almost like a sister. Skye Rain with her rainbow hair and such an infectious guffaw that you wouldn’t imagine would come out of five foot nothing girl.

One of my big lessons so far has been not to judge a book by its cover. In our first hand to hand combat class I would never have believed that five foot two Sergeant Diana Knott would leave six foot three Sergeant Loughlin Hall flat on his back, winded. And the class stud, Kyle Carey was a definite mistake, but so have most of my relationships been. Not that you can really call one night rendezvous a relationship.

My only real regrets since I started at the Academy is my relationship with Gabrielle Sanders but I have no idea what I could have done to offend her so badly. The least said about my relationship with my step-father the better.

So my resolutions for this year. Not anything to do with weight, Knott and Hall have got that pretty much covered with their circuits sessions.

1)      Keep working hard in classes.

2)      Try to get on better with Gabrielle.

3)      Find out who killed Jamie.


(If you want to find out more about what happens you’ll have to hope that Kirsty Stanley gets Training Time: Book 1 of the Cop Across Time completed and edited)

    luck with those resolutions.

  2. Sounds like you have had a truly awful year, Jane. But hopefully things will continue to get better for you. Keep us posted on how things go at the Academy.
