Writing can be a lonely business in some ways. I mean, yes, you have your beloved characters to keep you company and engage in the sort of dazzlingly quick dialogue you (well, I, anyway) never quite manage in real life, but it's not the same as talking to real people, is it? And even when… Continue reading My Summer of Love at the RNA Conference
I always knew that the first half of this year was going to be busy. Then some new opportunities came my way and busy turned to frantic. I have deadlines rushing up to meet me at alarming speed... and I am having the best time meeting them! I've achieved so much in the last couple… Continue reading A Weekend Off
This time last year, I was nervously preparing for the 2012 Festival of Romance in Bedford. It was my very first major writers event, my first time reading my work in public, my first time showing up and chatting to real authors as if I almost belonged there. The first two e-books in my Love… Continue reading A Lot Can Change In A Year…
Today's the day that my paperback Cherish Duo with Melissa McClone hits the shelves in UK shops! Even though my book, Stranded with the Tycoon, has been on sale over in the US and Australia since September, this is my first chance to actually see it in shops in my home country. Of course, given… Continue reading A Little Bit of Holiday Magic
I don't know about where you are, but here in Hertfordshire I have unpacked the boots and winter coats. I've bought the daughter the sweetest little owl hat ever made, and am happily imagining crisp autumn walks, cosy evenings with a book and a blanket, and pub lunches with roaring fires. All while ignoring the… Continue reading Missing summer yet?

It's available as a paperback and ebook in the States and Canada, and as a paperback 2-in-1 and ebook in Australia. I'm so excited to have this book out in the world at last. It's… Continue reading Get Stranded…
The Daughter has never been particularly fond of dinosaurs. All the boys she's friends with are - although they prefer superheroes - but she's always maintained that dinosaurs are scary. Despite this dislike, she remains very concerned as to what happened to them. "There aren't any dinosaurs any more, are there, Mummy? So where did they… Continue reading Fossil Hunting
This weekend, the lovely Renee Rocco at Lyrical Press sent over the cover design for the third book in my Love from Wales series, Summer of Love, due out in December. I'd been somewhat nervously awaiting this one, just because I love the first two covers in the series so much! When I had to… Continue reading A new look, and a new book cover!
Happy Bookiversary to me! On this day, last year, my first novel, Room for Love, was officially released. I was, due to a slight scheduling error, stuck up a castle in Derbyshire at the time, trying to manage release promos and blog tours via the non-existant 3G connection on my phone, and squealing every time… Continue reading My Bookiversary!
Or: Why My Friends & Family Are The Best Ever This weekend, I turned 33. I'm a big believer in making the most of birthdays, as anyone who has had to listen to me going on and on about this one will testify. I know some people prefer to ignore them, or at least ignore… Continue reading All The Cake In The World
