On The Road!

Being an author is a dual experience sometimes. Most of the year, you lock yourself away with imaginary people and live in that created world. That’s the everyday side of it. But then, you have to change out of your PJs, travel to different places and be part of the excitement, sensory battering, rollercoaster that is being an author outside…

Written Dreams

It’s something that I will always look at and feel an immense sense of pride and joy. I was lucky to be a part of the first GCLS Writing Academy. It was a course which introduced new friends who I will always enjoy cheering on and saw me work, once more, with my dear friend Sandra on La Vie en…

BINGO!!!

Hi all! Yes, it’s summer, yes it’s grab-a-book-and-lounge-by-the-pool time, yes… it is time for BOOK BINGO! Wonderful author, Jae, has come up with an amazing way to get you enjoying and perhaps winning FREE books. Yup, you heard me. So grab your dabber, dust off your bingo wings (even better if you already have a set of your own) and…

Game On

Today, I need a holiday from being me. You ever feel like that? I love being me but sometimes it’s hard. To add context, it takes a lot to get me feeling that way but it happens. We’ve had some worry over Ferb who needed a scan and meds which gave us a lot of worry (but he’s getting back…

To A T

Before we go into the blog, please watch the short video so you can understand, from me to you, what I’m up to.   Watched it? Great. Now you know where I’m coming from, I can chat to you about my adventure. In Fashion took a lot of research. It features a TV show called The Style Surgeon where Darcy,…

Never Give Up

I realised that it’s mental health awareness week and it’s always heartening and heart-breaking to hear how people are affected. But, mental health isn’t just about those long-term mental health challenges that so many (incredible) people face. We’re all susceptible to suffering from mental illness and there’s always a new way to improve our mental health. It’s about all of…

A Bold Day Out

Authors are recluses much of the time (or at least the majority of us) but there are occasions when we change out of our pyjamas and head to sun-filled places… i.e. Nottingham (yes, it really was sunny – who knew!) on glorious bank holiday weekends to hang out with the beautiful people (i.e. the Bold Strokes folks.) Hosted by Brey…

Changing Images

Hey! I’m in the midst of writing at the moment on several different projects, editing, and racking up hospital miles but wanted to drop in and say hi. Whatever I’m writing, it teaches me something new and the experiences day to day seem to filter into the book. With Aeron’s series, I talk about captivity and slavery often. It’s a…

In Fashion – The cover reveal…

Hey there! Well, I’m really excited to talk about In Fashion. It’s my first project with Ylva. It’s been a lot of fun so far learning how the team work and settling in. It’s always a bit nervy when you’re the new kid on the block, even if you’re not really very new! One of my favourite bits thus far is…

Review, Q&A, a giveaway and even Em!

Hey! Well, if any of you are in Bristol for the ELLCON, then you will be able to catch Ferb, Em and I causing chaos. The lovely ELLCON team decided to plough through my books to see if they were any good which you can see, here… ELLCON BLOG They rugby-tackled me (ankle tap to be exact) to ask me…
