Life Just Got busier! The Wonders of Writing and Winging It!


Sorry it's been a while since I've posted here. My feet haven't touched the ground lately. 

The Cosy Teashop in the Castle is now published, and has been doing wonderfully well especially in the e-book market. At one point I got to No 6 in the whole of Kindle paid - wow! And No. 1 briefly in Romantic Comedy. I have also just learned that my book will be appearing in paperback in Sainsbury's this summer, from the middle of June - how marvellous.

As well as all this, I have been busy finishing Book 3 - a poignant love story set on beautiful Bamburgh beach here in Northumberland, and whilst I'm trying to settle a book deal on that (via my lovely agent, Hannah Ferguson), I'm busy writing Book 4 as loads of ideas keep filling my head for a Christmas follow up to The Cosy Teashop!


As well as the writing and the day job, I'm doing lots of library events around the North of England, my next being at Stockton library on 6th May, 4pm. I am also appearing in Wakefield, Gateshead, Jarrow, Doncaster and Manchester. The full programme is on the Read Regional website (there are lots of other fab writers involved too) and I've written a Blog there to let you know all about the scheme, my first events and how it feels to be in front of an audience - definitely a bit of winging it!

I've also been appearing as on several guest blogs. I was very proud to feature on Novelicous recently - the wonderful Women's Fiction Blog for Readers and Writers. 
So take a peek at my writing room:
And, my top tips for new writers:

Well then, I'd better get on and back to the writing once more!
Take care all,
