The world is starting to open up again, and I had a wonderful time with some family a few weeks ago. Nothing complicated; good food, good wine, great conversation. We eventually meandered onto the topic of art, and what made a great artist. How some of hte best artists were not recognised or respected during their lifetime. How they were often ahead of their field, capturing the zietgeist of the culture at the time.
I’m almost thirty! And to be honest, I couldn’t be happier about it. My twenties have been fun, don’t get me wrong – two degrees, three jobs, and one rather fantastic husband have all been gained during this decade – but there comes a point when you realise being 19 and being 29 are very different places.
One of the hardest things about being a writer is that you have to do much of it alone.

Well, almost. I am one of those (fantastic) people who absolutely loves Christmas. One summer a few years ago I was living in New Zealand, and I found myself listening to Christmas music all of August! But I digress. There are so many things to love about Christmas and just a few of them are starting to peek their heads around the corner. Frosty … Read More Christmas is almost here!
Believe it or not, I get asked this question a lot – and I kind of understand it. After all, most of our images of an author is someone like Jane Austen, scribbling away on a tiny desk, or Oscar Wilde, resplendent in his elegant clothes while mocking the very class that he comes from. Nowadays, not so much. Let me take you on … Read More What is it that authors even do?
I’m so excited to say that my latest Regency romance, Drenched with a Duke, is published! A woman fished out of the ocean, and a man looking to ruin his reputation – and neither is expecting to find answers with each other… Alexander, the Duke of Caershire, wasn’t expecting to drag a half-drowned woman from the Thames, but there seems little to do but help the … Read More Shipwrecked with a Suitor is published!
I started out as a medieval writer; someone who knew and loved the medieval period completely and utterly. I studied History and English at the University of York, UK, and the majority of that ended up being medieval and Early Modern. I revelled in what I learned of the medieval period, and I truly loved learning about the history, the politics, the food, the … Read More Medieval vs Regency
So, I went to a hen party over the weekend, and it was a total blast. Between eating far too much, wandering around in picturesque Cambridge, England, and punting (and not falling in!) I had the traditional problem that almost all of us writers have: how do we introduce ourselves? Now, I know that sounds a little bit strange. After all, we were all … Read More Hello, I’m a writer . . .
So, I’m not usually one to brag about discovering something fantastic (especially when I’m usually told about them), but I really want to dedicate this blog post to a website that I’ve started using which has been INCREDIBLE for me as an author. Intrigued? Carry on. I always find it irritating that I never know how many ebooks I have sold until my 6 … Read More A Website Every Author Needs!
