Happy New Year’s Eve

It’s that time again!

The time of year when we all look back on the year that we have already lived, and we start to look at the future of the year to come.


You Can Write More – course is live!

I love teaching! After becoming a full time author, one of the few things I was sad to leave behind was the opportunity to teach and mentor. It’s something I’ve tried to do with authors I know, and after a few of them asked me to create a course…


When was the last time you fell in love?

Love. It’s something that almost all of us crave, whether it’s from a romantic partner, a parent, a child, a friend – or a pet!


You Can Write More – course launch!

I love teaching! It’s one of the things I miss about my old day job, and after so many authors and aspiring authors have asked me to do this, I’ve finally done it. I’ve created a course!


I’m mentoring through Arts Emergency

I think if we’re honest, all of us know that we have only managed to achieve what we’ve achieved because of other people.


What’s in a birthday?

What’s in a birthday? I have never really thought about birthdays that much – that sounds daft, but you’re born when you’re born, and that has always been the end of it.


What’s on my desk?

Today I thought I’d share a snapshot of my desk!


Author update: writing after COVID

Again, if you’re not in the right head space for hearing about COVID, please skip this blog and I’ll see you next week!


Recovering (slowly!) as an author with COVID

Hey lovely readers! If reading about more COVID things aren’t good for your mental health right now, please feel free to skip this one!

As many of my readers know, I had COVID at the very beginning of March and I got it bad. Not hospitalisation bad, but bedridden for a week, vomming, chest pain and shallow breathing bad.

So yeah. Not good.


I’m award nominated (again!)

It is such a surprise to be nominated not once, not twice, but THREE times for a RONE Award in 2022!


Happy Mothering Sunday

I’m not a mother, but Mothering Sunday (Mother’s Day here in the UK) is not always about that. It’s about the power of motherhood, of maternal love, of caring for the mothers around us.


Bittersweet endings

Well, we’re only two weeks away from the last book in my Governess Bureau series being published (that’s A Governess of Wise Years, in case you missed it!) and I am feeling very bittersweet.
