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
Happy birthday, Grace!
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!

Hello! Anyone there? I know, I know... it's been a while. How're you doing? Personally, I'm very confused about all these new WordPress features. And at the moment, it doesn't take much to confuse me. I'm in the middle of writing a new novel, I've got edits of another to figure out and - you … Continue reading I’m back!
The end, the end, the very very end…
My novel is complete. It's been sent for editing - the lovely Karen Sanders removed a million extraneous commas - and I've looked over the notes, and now it's done. Completely and utterly done! Next, I have to decide what I want to do with it. I'd like to submit it, either to an agent … Continue reading The end, the end, the very very end…
