My latest book is out now and it is wonderful that people are buying it.  My main protagonist, Jojo, is a complicated and, ultimately, ruthless person. She takes drastic action to deal with her feckless family, who are curbing her ambition.

I have recently finished...

 Here it is, the cover for my new book, The Misfit's Remedy, which will be released on 1st September.

This is proof that I found a route through the self publishing maze. I can't say that it has been plain sailing, but I have got there in the end. I had to decide what w...

I'm going to self publish my novel The Misfit's Remedy. Straightforward one would think, but there is so much to consider. Firstly, do it myself, or get someone to do it for me.

The glorious weather has given us the chance to spend a lot of time outside. We are lucky enough to have a garden and I've been out there most of the time. I have pulled out the odd weed and even used the lawnmower.

Facing pages of script which need to b...

My philosophy has always been "I want it all and I want it now". Especially in the early days of my writing, I would finish a story, tidy it up a bit, and then onto the next one. Not the best method of working.

I have recently gone back to a novel I wrote some time ago,...

 Happy New year, everyone. I haven't written a blog for a while, but I'm back with renewed enthusiasm. I am still writing most days, although I did have a break over Christmas, and my latest project is a novel entitled Eden's Tale. I'm not going to tell you too much ab...

I was contacted and asked whether I would like to join a group called the British and Irish writing community. Yes please, was my response. These lovely people share information and encouragement and will soon release the first issue of their on line magazine Bard of t...
