Before the Fall – book review

Normally I’m very certain about the kind of books I like – either a light-hearted romance with a sprinkle of humour, or a cosy mystery.  It’s as simple as that.  But recently I stepped away from my norm and picked up Before the Fall by Juliet West. Set during WWI in London’s working class East…

Exciting times afoot!

While I’m awaiting a publication date for my romantic novel, The Virgin’s Gamble, I’ve decided to embark on a new project.  For the first time, I’m going to dip my foot into the world of self-publishing, and it’s all rather thrilling – and scary! I’m going to self-publish a series of erotic short stories.  Two…

The land of fire and ice

We’ve just returned from a few days away in Iceland, so thought I’d take the opportunity to blog about our experience, and what we’d do differently if we knew then what we know now! The very first story I ever wrote was set in Iceland, and since our visit I’ve picked this up again but…

New book cover revealed!

It was with some trepidation that I awaited the reveal of my debut novel’s cover.  Cover art is everything.  What if I didn’t like it?  What if it didn’t represent my story or characters well? There is nothing quite as exciting as seeing your book cover for the first time.  Getting the contract is exciting…

Indian Cookery Course

Last week I started an Indian cookery course.  I love a bit of Indian cooking; the lovely colours of all the veggies, the smells of the exotic spices – yum!  My gran used to make a lot of Indian food before it was even trendy to do so, and my dad was on first name…

A good old-fashioned ‘staycation’

This year, like last, my husband took me away for the weekend for a belated birthday present.  We had an amazing time, but we didn’t go to Barcelona, Berlin or Bern, we went to Bournemouth! We stayed at a B&B whose theme was ‘chocolate’.  You could get chocolate wine (the most delicious thing in the…

Get your motor running

Recently my lovely friend and neighbour, Andy, offered to take me out for a spin on his motorbike.  It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the back of one, the last time being when I was 19, sans helmet, zipping around a Greek island.  Back then I thought I was invincible so it…

That’s very Pinteresting!

I’ve been writing for five years now, and can’t tell you how useful I find Pinterest.  Unlike other social platforms, it’s soooo easily.  Basically, it allows you to search for pictures, then put them together on a board. Like most people, I’m quite visual, so looking at a photo of my character, or seeing where…

Mamma Mia – I’m going social!

Today’s blog was going to be an interview with my 7 year old son about the Mamma Mia! musical we saw last night in Brighton.  So, in order to ‘maximise my time’ I started to question him while we were waiting for our food at KFC (yes, I’m a very slobby mother). Here is his…

Dare to Write – only 24 hours left to enter!

I’ve just come back from a great weekend at The RNA’s annual conference, where I learned more about Mills & Boon’s much-anticipated new line – the sexually explicit DARE. You can learn more about it here, and found out how to enter their new blitz competition. But quick!  There’s only just over 24 hours left…
