A little gratitude

Being a writer with aspirations, it’s easy to go along thinking how very hard it is to knuckle down and write, and persevere in doing so despite the many setbacks writers all over will be familiar with.  However, it’s also easy to sometimes forget the many people around without whose support, encouragement, patience and time,…

A long, overdue update!

I’ve been somewhat slack on updating my blog recently, but so much has been happening that finding the time has been tricky.  So much has been going on, in fact, that when I was trying to recall myself what I’d been up to, I got in a bit of a muddle! I’ve been doing A…

Quiche on going!

Last week – it being the most romantic week of the year n’all – I promised my husband I’d make him ‘a crackin’ dinner’.  We don’t go out on Valentine’s night for the same reason most people who don’t, don’t: far too expensive, rubbish service, and being surrounded by hundreds of couples who  clearly feel…

Entering writing competitions

As an emerging writer I’m big on entering writing competitions.  It’s a great way of getting noticed, getting invaluable feedback, and of setting yourself the all-important goal of getting better at your craft. In the first writing competition I entered I came 19th – out of around 50.  I was surprised very happy with this…

You WILL go to the ball!

Having just returned from a weekend in Vienna, I thought I’d take the opportunity to write a post about the trip.  I’ve just finished writing a scene set in Vienna for my next book ‘The Single Dad’s First Love’, and I was relieved to find it was just as I’d imagined. I went with a…

Christmas in Norway

This year, like last, we spent Christmas in Norway.  It’s such a beautiful and inspiring place that I’d thought I’d take the opportunity to talk about it on my blog. This year we went to Myrkdalen, a relatively quiet ski resort two hours by road from the city of Bergen.  One of the best things…

First erotic short story – out on Amazon Kindle!

To the outside world, Countess Molly Bucklington has the perfect life. She lives in a beautiful English manor…

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…
