The Magical Bookshop is open!

Yes, I am massively over-excited, because it's launch day for Every Trick In The Book! I had such fun writing this book, and when I sent it to my beta readers they gobbled it up. My ARC readers have been absolutely brilliant, too, and the book already has some reviews on Goodreads. Read the early …

Ambushed by a book!

You know when something's in the background and then all of a sudden it's RIGHT THERE? That's kind of how it's been with my latest book. Once I'd finished the draft of Pippa Parker book 6, Past Tense, I was in a bit of a quandary. There were lots of books I could write, but …

On finding a new writing routine when your old one collapses

It's been an interesting few weeks, hasn't it? We're all coping with something which, frankly, I could never have imagined. First of all, I'm not complaining. So far, my family's doing OK. The grown-ups are still working, the kids have been studying (as far as I can tell!). Most importantly, we're all well. Of course …

The End, again

In this episode, three The Ends which aren't, really. On Wednesday I finally got my butt in gear and ran 5K (with much complaining). I'd got to about week 7 of Couch to 5K, and had stuck there for ages. I had gone out running, but with a friend, and not following the programme. So …

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 …
