An anagram is a word made from the letters of another words such as “listen” and “silent”. In my latest book, SHOUTING AT THE RAIN, all of the characters’ names are anagrams.
AS PROMISED, I am here to give my readers some hints as to the anagram solutions. Please see the list below.
Each line begins with a character’s name, followed by a hint. In some cases, I have included partial solutions or given the letter breakup of the answer. For example ” –5- —6— means there are two words in the solution – the first word is 5 letters and the second word is 6 letters.
Here are your anagram clues!!
