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.

Adventures in knitting…new book progress!

A couple of blog posts ago I mentioned that I'd started a new book, and that I was dictating it (here is the blog if you missed it). Things are moving on apace. Most days I've been going out for a walk, with the chapter outline in my head and phone in hand. Usually I …
