Typical author blabbing about her new release… first it appeared in my mailing list, then inside the local magazine, next we headed over on Instagram and now, here on my blog, I reveal to you the cover of Don’t Tell Jack out October 2021………………………… For links to all of my writing related stuff, my link… Continue reading Cover reveal…
I sometimes (who am I kidding) quite often question what I am doing in life. My work, my love life, the social side of things – basically everything that makes up life. Usually this happens very late at night or very early in the morning but question I do. And fret. Oh gosh do I… Continue reading They had an off tasting bit of orange, they weren’t judging your life. Possibly?
So I finished the book that lots of people are talking about – The Midnight Library by Matt Haig. Thank you sir. I loved it. At the start I wasn’t sure whether or not it would be my cup of tea as I began it with – of course – a cup of tea. I’m… Continue reading The Midnight Library: a review
I write for all sorts of reasons. It might be to get something off my chest; to keep a record of my days; to entertain others; to remember what I need to buy from the supermarket; an idea that turns into a short story and everything in between.

Men and women of all ages have become gripped into the life of Mary Carter. This is everything that a writer asks… Continue reading How my subconscious influences my writing
On my own terms. Preferably a day off from my day job. Waking up on my own accord and consuming two lovely hot beverages; be it tea or coffee, equally lovely, before doing anything else. I would usually begin with reading something entirely unrelated to whatever it is I plan to write. For at least… Continue reading My Perfect Writing Day
Publishing is a strange process. It begins with hours of work, a never ending task of finishing the book. Sometimes it’s enjoyable, sometimes painful. Then editing begins and it honestly feels like that takes decades to complete. There are a lot of very quiet periods spent waiting on the next draft to come through, followed… Continue reading My Publishing Journey: My book in my hands!!
