Books AND wine gums? Lemme at ’em!

This morning finds me full of cold, woolly-headed, and quite possibly buried under a thick blanket of snow. But I still have a blog post for you, since I'm a guest at Emma Moyle's Books and Wine Gums blog this weekend! How lucky is that? To visit Emma's super blog, and read my Q&A, just follow the …

Happy Halloween!

The horror story here is that our dishwasher isn't working...other than that, we're good. I'm looking forward to two things this Halloween. One is going trick-or-treating with the kids later - sweeeeeets! The other is taking part in C.L. Monaghan's Halloween takeover event, Midnight Mayhem and Magic, to celebrate the launch of her new book, Midnight …
