I sat down with my cup of tea this afternoon and realised it was, quite suddenly, Sunday - and here I am without so much as a word to share! School Holidays is always one of my favourite times; I love having the kids close by (even if they argue) and not having to rush… Continue reading School Holidays
When you write a book, it's amazing. Or at least, I find it amazing - a sense of rightness, of knowing that this is what I'm meant to be doing. I'm not really me if I'm not crafting a world, a story, pushing characters and polishing sentences. It's hard work, but it's the best kind… Continue reading A Dose of Adulting
The last week or so has been crazy! With a capital cray. In case the title wasn't a dead giveaway, 22nd August was my birthday, and that's always a fun time of year for me. I don't know why birthdays appeal to me but they always have. It doesn't have to be mine, I love… Continue reading Birthday Round-Up

I honestly had plans to write something fun and creative this week, but I forgot one very important thing - the school holidays are here! I adore the school holidays. ADORE them. Having my two beautiful babies home with me every day and no reason to leave the house? What could be better? Still, the… Continue reading Attack of the Holidays
First off, I actually don’t like talking about genre. I hate the idea that every book needs to be labelled and set into the appropriate box. It drives me nuts when people say things like “Oh, I don’t read romance,” or “I hate fantasy, ew,” because that’s a generalisation based purely on the stereotypical idea… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Genre
I woke with the sudden and uncomfortable understanding that I was not alone. Blinking into the darkness, I threw a cautious arm across the bed. Nothing. From outside the bedroom, the softest crinkle of the holland blinds, made by fingers pushing them furtively aside. I peeled back the quilt and rolled out of bed, shambling… Continue reading Welcome To My Life
When there’s not enough hours in the day... why not add more?
The first post, the hardest post, the most needed post. Starting anew!
