A quick newsy-type update as I skip around the living room, to say that The Hopes and Dreams of Lucy Baker has been shortlisted for the Katie Fforde Debut Romantic Novel Award in next month's annual RONAs. To say I'm delighted would be an understatement. When I look at all the other nominees in the … Continue reading Lucy Baker Shortlisting
January 10th 2019.My husband's birthday. BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, publication day for The Hopes and Dreams of Lucy Baker. *Happy dance* It was a truly memorable day, with various gifts and bouquets of flowers arriving non-stop at our front door - and not one of them for my poor husband. Two days later, I held an … Continue reading A Year Ago Today…
Oopsie daisy. I've been neglecting you all and haven't updated the blog for eons. In my defence, I've been super busy, pulling together book 3 and working with THE most wonderful literary agent on the planet, Louise Buckley, to amp up the drama, iron out the creases and make it the very best it can … Continue reading Sophie Kinsella and RNA Winter Party
Publication day for a very special friend of mine.
Congratulations Rosie. An excellent series.
The war is almost over – and it’s up to the East End Angels to keep the home fires burning!
Frankie‘s fiance, a doctor, is away looking after the troops in Europe – will he return safely home?

Book bloggers are the best people on the entire planet. *fact* This incredible group of people give up their spare time to read and review a myriad of books (which, considering it takes several hours to read a book, is a phenomenal undertaking) AND THEY DO IT ALL FOR FREE! I, for one, am in … Continue reading A Shout Out to all the Book Bloggers IN THE WORLD!
Today I got to smell the pages of my book! This is a strange author thing. Well, technically, it's a book lover thing, but when the words within that precious book came from your imaginings, that makes the sniffing extra special. Since eBook publication in January, I have over 100 fabulous Amazon reviews, and … Continue reading Wake Up and Smell The Pages!
Thursday the 10th January 2019. An insignificant little day in itself. Christmas has been and gone, the New Year has been welcomed in and everyone considers doing Dry January until they realise how miserable the weather is and reach for the nearest bottle of wine. To me, however, this date marked the official start of … Continue reading Publication Day!!!
It's been a weird eight months. To recap - back at the start of 2018 I was actively seeking to move from part-time to full-time work. My CV had been dusted down and "creatively tweaked". My latest novel was out with agents and a few publishers. Life was jogging along nicely. A phone call from … Continue reading Countdown to Publication

I've been a naughty bunny and sadly neglected my blog of late. In my defence, I have been writing my little bunny tail off, and now have a completed first draft of Cupboard Love (my dual timeline romantic comedy) which has taken longer than anticipated. This is what happens when you throw a bit of history … Continue reading Waiting But Still Writing
