After months of planning and waiting and thinking and nail-biting, Small Forgotten Moments has left the building. If you've pre-ordered, it's winging its way to you, or has possibly already arrived. Today I shall mostly be jumping up and down, having lunch with my family, and breathing a sigh of contented relaxation. It's all over, … Continue reading Small Forgotten Moments has arrived!
To celebrate the launch of my latest novel Small Forgotten Moments, I'm giving away this stunning blue sea glass pendant. It was sourced on the very beach where the novel is set, by the wonderfully talented and keen-eyed Megan at SeaShaw Sea Glass Jewellery. Blue sea glass is apparently rare, so when she showed it … Continue reading A chance to win…
Photo by Ron Lach on Pexels.com This is me right now. Well, obviously not actually me, I don't look like this - but I'm too knackered to look good in a photo right now! This week we helped Eldest Child move to Bristol - emotional exhaustion.We stayed in a hotel for a couple of nights … Continue reading When everything converges
I'm a slow writer. It probably has something to do with the fact I don't plan my novels so I can happily write a whole book before deciding I don't like the direction it's taking and have to go back to the beginning! One day, maybe, I'll learn how to write the right way. So, … Continue reading Happy birthday, Grace!
If you don't mind, I'm just going to take a moment to relax. Ah, that feels good. It's been a busy couple of days in my neck of the woods.

It's been almost two weeks since I last posted - my regular Mondays have gone off the rails. Last time it was a Thursday, today Wednesday. However, I have reasons... I'm going to start with some sad, personal news. My lovely Dad passed away last week. The man who taught me how to make stick … Continue reading Blogging in a daze
For anyone that awaits my Monday posts with baited breath, apologies, it's only Thursday but this post couldn't wait. Having said that, it's the weekend soon! When I was writing Grace & Serenity, I knew Grace was going to be homeless for a while, but I also planned where her story would go next. In … Continue reading Raising money this Christmas
It's time to look back over the month, but you know what? I don't want to. It's been a horrible month and I want to create as much distance between me and it as possible. All I'll say is I'm going to be a lot more careful how I use the phrase it can't get … Continue reading Not one, not two, but 3 fantastic books!
It's been an amazing week of reviews, interviews, shares, comments and - of course - a quick bottle of bubbly and a huge bouquet of flowers from my wonderful husband.
