I’m working on a new and unexpected story. I’m sure there are authors who schedule what they’re going to write when and actually stick to it, but I don’t seem to be one of them. You see, I went on a Heritage Open Day earlier this month. Well, I went on a few, but thisContinue reading “Out of the blue: a new Halloween tale”

In which I go on a (sort of) workcation!
Workcation, it has to be said, is a grim-sounding word. Why would anyone run those two concepts together? However, I read an interview with Holly Worton on the Creative Penn website which mentioned the concept, and decided that it might be worth a go. I have a project which I’ve been meaning to get onContinue reading “In which I go on a (sort of) workcation!”

Prepare to launch: Brought to Book!
Book 2 of the Magical Bookshop series is here – prepare to be Brought to Book! And so far, my early reviewers have really enjoyed it! This time I’ve advanced a bit further down the path which the first book, Every Trick in the Book, paused at, and a few more things about the bookshop areContinue reading “Prepare to launch: Brought to Book!”
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 earlyContinue reading “The Magical Bookshop is open!”
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, butContinue reading “Ambushed by a book!”
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 courseContinue reading “On finding a new writing routine when your old one collapses”
Prepare to launch! Maisie Frobisher is Off the Map…
She’s back! And this time, Maisie may or may not be riding an elephant… Maisie Frobisher has arrived in India – in Mumbai to be precise, or Bombay as it was in the 1890s – and she’ll get quite a culture shock when she steps off the boat… I’m delighted to launch Maisie book 2Continue reading “Prepare to launch!

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. SoContinue reading “The End, again”
New year, same goals…
At least I’m getting in with the new year’s goals post quicker than I did last year! I won’t get into whether it’s a new decade or not because people will start squabbling, so let’s move along. Here’s a recap of last year’s goals: Work smarter, not harder Try some new things Get fitter 2019Continue reading “New year, same goals…”
