Twist & Mix, my second collection of short stories, has won a Red Ribbon (Honourable Mention) in The Wishing Shelf Book awards.
I am pleased with the Readers’ Comments and thought I’d share some of them with you:
‘An interesting array of writings. I enjoyed many of them. Character development seems to be the author’s no. 1 skill. I particularly enjoyed A Chance For Charlie.
Female reader, aged 56 ‘I enjoy a good short story; perfect just before bed. There was an excellent mix here and plenty of fully formed characters to enjoy. Much of the writing was fresh and descriptive. Very enjoyable.’
Male reader, aged 42 ‘This author is very good at ‘showing’ and not ‘telling’, a rare gift.’
Male reader, aged 51 ‘Amusing in many ways and, as the blurb suggests, even thought-provoking. A short story is a tough sell but the author worked hard to offer the reader a set of well-written, character-driven shorts.’
Female reader, aged 42 Catchy Quote ‘A provocative mix of shorts; character-driven and, often, thought-provoking. A Red Ribbon winner!’

At long last, after a bout of viral flu that delayed my novella, Are you Lost?, is available in paperback and ebook format:
Runaway Love – a mystery/romance
Published in paperback and as an e-book earlier this year I am thrilled to hear I have just sold World Large Print Rights of Runaway Love to Ulverscroft, who publish large print editions for libraries.
Runaway Love, a story of heartache, intrigue and romance, has now been released as a paperback as well as available in e-book format. Read and enjoy!
An extra day in my year – I intend to make it special. My novel, ‘Runaway Love’, has runaway to the publisher and is available to download from Amazon. The novel starts in February in Herefordshire, so today is a very appropriate day for it to become live! A story of heartache, love and mystery, set in the beautiful countryside, where the past must be confronted to find happiness in the present. Happy reading
Thanks to all the constructive comments about the cover of my latest book, No Escape, the title has been changed to Runaway Love, a title more suited to a romantic mystery story. A few other subtle changes and I think it is almost ready for publication. When I get to the stage of changing the changes back to the previous changes, I know I’ve changed enough!! Watch out for publication date. Thanks again to those who contributed
At long last I’ve shaken off the post-Christmas procrastination and opened the laptop. The weather hasn’t helped, I’m a sunshine person. Yesterday I finished the final draft of my romantic/suspense novella, ‘No Escape’. You can run away but you can’t hide from love. There is no escape. Hopefully it will be available to download by the end of February. In the meantime, please can we have some sunshine!!
