I’m sick – again!

With the emergence of spring comes the emergence of all the coughs and colds!


Is spring here yet?!

Anyone who knows me well knows how much I adore summer, and loathe winter…


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.


Ask me anything!

I absolutely love speaking with my readers, and sometimes I know you have questions about my books, my series, how I write, and more – so this is your time to ask me!


Hugs in the time of COVID

You know, I never thought I would think of a hug as a powerful thing, until this year.


What do you eat and drink while writing?

Whenever I was studying for my exams when I was young, I would always need to have chocolate chip cookies. For me, that’s what revision tastes like! I would use them for motivation; all I had to do was get through revising another few pages, and I would have a cookie. As I’ve got older, I really haven’t changed that much! Some days I … Read More What do you eat and drink while writing?


Completing a book in lockdown

In my last blog, I talked about the weirdness of trying to write in lockdown, and how hard I was finding that. I am always honest with my readers, and so I wanted to share some of the process that went on behind the scenes. You can read it here. So many people reached out and shared that they, too, were finding it a … Read More Completing a book in lockdown


Writing in lockdown

Almost half of the world’s population is in lockdown, and so am I. Writing in lockdown has been something I’ve been really struggling with, and after four weeks of it, I wanted to write a blog about it and be really open and honest about it. If you believed social media, you would think that everyone is loving lockdown! Enjoying baths, playing with their … Read More Writing in lockdown


Writing during the hard times

I have been a little quiet on the blog side of things, and I do apologise for that – it’s been a busy and emotional few weeks. The details I will keep private to protect those I love but suffice to say, I’ve been bereaved about a fortnight ago and it’s been an emotional journey. Writing during such a time becomes challenging for two … Read More Writing during the hard times


The perfect ending to a romance

I’ve written over 25,000 words this weekend (!) because I was desperate to finish book 3 of a new series which will be coming out next year. The words were just flowing from my fingertips and although I will of course lose some of them in the editing process, I’m glad to get so many of them down. And yet the bit I found … Read More The perfect ending to a romance


Writing deadlines

Well, I’m just going to come out and say it: I’m behind. Weeks behind! I have a writing schedule that I do my absolute best to keep to, but sometimes, you know what, life gets in the way. It’s just not possible to do everything, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed and think that there’s no way that you can ever catch up, and … Read More Writing deadlines


Rain, rain, go away…

I don’t want to confirm any stereotypes of England…but it’s been raining for the last six days.

In June! SIX DAYS!
