So it’s official!

I am a published author! Well, it’s on e books at the moment, the paperback version is coming out on 23rd Jan. The publishers emphasised this was a soft launch so I didn’t really get too excited but then everyone around me started to make a fuss and I suddenly thought: “No, this is a... Continue Reading →

Has it really only been five days?

Why does last week seem like another era from a different universe? I think we all feel we've gone through a time warp and, just to let you know, Captain Kirk, I'd like to go back now. Now, is that strictly true? I'm guiltily aware that we are very lucky to live where we are... Continue Reading →

Keep calm and carry on

We're all doomed! Apparently. Oh help, so what do we do? We're supposed to be going on holiday at the weekend to Cyprus and although I'm packing, I'm not sure we should be going and the Whatsapps are coming in thick and fast from our daughters as to why their very elderly parents shouldn't be...

Now what?

I sent off what I hope are the final re-writes of novel #2, Bobby's War yesterday, so what do I do now?

The suspense…oh, the suspense

Do you remember that feeling when you'd done your exam and you were waiting for your results? Well, I've just sent off book 2, hopefully to be called 'Bobby's War' ( following 'Lily's War' ..see what I did there? Talk about creating your own brand) to my lovely agent and I'm now waiting to see... Continue Reading →

First gigs!

So this week, I'm doing two panels in my new official role as an author apparent. I'm not sure I'm ready for this. I mean I don't get published for another nine months so I feel a bit of a fraud really, but at least I have nine months from now to convince people I'm... Continue Reading →
