3…2…1: Past Tense is launched!

It's launch day! If you like, you can imagine that I'm writing this with virtual bunting strung above my head, and drinking a glass of virtual champagne (although it's a bit early for that sort of thing). Anyway, I'm very pleased to announce that Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, is now available in ebook and …

The best of both worlds: Past Tense launches on 30 June!

I seem to have been busier than usual lately. I'm not sure if this is because I have been, or if it just seems that way. But anyhow, I haven't quite got round to a proper marketing effort for Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, which launches next Tuesday, 30 June. Past Tense was an …

A new book – and a competition too!

I took a day off between book edits this week, and spent it sorting out the book cover and blurb for Pippa Parker book 6. I'm not sure this qualifies as a day off in the normal sense of the word, but hey. Anyway, here it is! Announcing Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, launching June …

It’s launch day – Gone To Ground has broken cover!

The preorders have been delivered, the paperback proof inspected, the book sample downloaded and checked, and I'm delighted (and somewhat relieved) to announce that Gone To Ground is officially launched! Gone To Ground is book 3 in the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries series, which I'd class as adventure mystery. Join Maisie in 1890s India for mystery, intrigue, and …

Have your say in my 2020 reader survey – and maybe win a paperback!

I did a reader survey last year and it was so helpful that I'm doing it again! I've put together a short (9-question) survey on SurveyMonkey. It's mainly multiple-choice, and its purpose is to learn more about my readers and people who interact with me on my author social media. I'll take the responses and use …

Prepare to launch! Maisie Frobisher is All At Sea…

Here comes Maisie! And typically, the paperback arrived fashionably late to dinner yesterday evening... All At Sea is the first in a new series, the Maisie Frobisher Mysteries, which I'd describe as adventure mystery. Maisie Frobisher popped up originally in the Caster & Fleet books, but you don't have to have read those first. Early reviews …

Hold the rosemary: announcing A Christmas Carrot!

It's taken a while to come to fruition, but here is my first children's book, A Christmas Carrot! A Christmas Carrot is a humorous story very much inspired by - you've guessed it - A Christmas Carol, and retold for 4-8 year olds in picture-book form. I did the words, and Zoe Harmon has provided the …
