IN FASHION

Friends, folks, and furry things, lend me your spectacles… Well, put them on, I don’t really need yours. I have my own. I’ve just had the nod from Ylva to tell me In Fashion will be available at Ellcon on Thursday (23rd) for you to get your advance copy! Hurray! So if you are at the event, you’ll be able…

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…

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,…

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…
