Assertiveness is something that I think is undervalued in current society. It’s something we love to see in the characters of our books.
It's amazing what sleep does for one. It can be entirely too easy to dismiss the qualities of decent sleep. When we're in this busy, fast-paced, always-connected world, sleep can often be consigned to when we're dead. I kind of get this mentality. As a person who loves a to-do list, to plan, to make [...]
The Widow's Redeemer has been released on Audible! I've been enjoying rather a long break away from online activities. It was partly for the 'having a break' thing and partly to give myself some creative space. Everything's so busy and buzzing and instant these days, and I confess to not always being able to shut [...]
One of the things I enjoy most in my life is the first sip of my coffee in the morning. And I'm not just saying that because it seems popular or like something a person would write next to an Instagram post of a super-fancy-over-the-top-latte. Let's be honest, what we see on social media is [...]
I got carried away. It was one of those days I have dedicated to writing. I woke up and instead of picking up a keyboard or lined paper, I picked up a sketch-pad and pencils. I've always enjoyed a bit of doodling and sketching. In fact, you might be interested to know that the faces [...]
This is probably one of the quickest blog posts I will write because really, there's only one thing to say, and that is that The Edict will be released on December 1st, 2017... Read The Edict's blurb here. Read The Edict Prologue & Chapter 1 here.

Anyway, it arrived so quickly when I ordered the first copy. So nervous It came like any other book ordered online in an inconspicious brown box [...]
I am so excited to finally be sharing more with you on the run up to the release of The Edict in December! The cover of The Edict starts with an old friend. Venetia and I go way back. We've been friends for several years now and she's easily one of those people I describe as lovely inside [...]
Some of you might have been wondering where I've been. An occasional glance at my blog may have made you think, 'gosh, it's a long time since she's posted.' You might have even been thinking, 'she's not really been on FB and Twitter much! She's been really quite quiet online.' Others of you might be [...]
It amazes me that sometimes, in my internet wanderings, when I am trying to find little nuggets of fact amidst the fog of the past that might embroider my novels with authentic detail, Google presents me with nothing exact. I mean, it's rather obvious that Google and Wikipedia and all other random, non-authoratitive sources, might [...]
