Hello Reading Friends!

From a beautifully sunny, but frosty, northern Scotland. And today is an exciting one, as it’s time for an update, with news to share with my blog readers…. But first, apologies for being a little late with this post, as last week I was over on the Novel Points of View blog where I was considering what the Netflix sensation, Bridgerton, teaches us about story. If Regency Romance is for you, then you may enjoy what I shared by following the link… (Bridgerton)

Also, during January I took time to reflect on the year gone, as well as setting goals for 2021. Last year, despite all the uncertainty and heartache in the world, it was a positive one for my writing. I was delighted to successfully launch of my website and blog, and am immensely grateful to everyone who follows, comments, tweets and shares. In addition, after completing a series of online flash fiction workshops, I was thrilled to have several pieces listed, with a couple to be included in anthologies.

First steps in Flash Fiction writing…

So what’s next… I plan on continuing to write flash fiction (a form I very much enjoy), but I have also returned to novel writing and plan on wrestling at least one of my works-in-progress into shape. I’m looking forward to the adventure and promise to keep readers informed on progress – all encouragement welcome!

Me, contemplating the ocean of edits that need done on my novels…

Now back to the blog… With a New Year comes fresh ideas and I’m delighted to announce that I have an exciting new series of Author Heart-to-Hearts 💗 that will be launched next month. My intention is to focus on women’s emotional fiction – the sort of family drama I love, concerning sisters and mothers, aunts and friends, (extra)ordinary women who struggle on through, stories that tug on the heartstrings. I hope to introduce favourite authors you already adore, as well as providing a platform for new writers to share their work. Prepare for your to-be-read list to grow!


To give you a flavour of the kind of novels I intend to feature, next month I will be enjoying a Heart-to-Heart with literary fiction author, Noelle Harrison, discussing writing, hobbies, ways to relax, as well as her latest release, The Boatman’s Wife.

I look forward to catching up again soon.

But until next time, stay safe and happy reading!

    1. Thank you, Rosemary. I have very little excuses to do anything other than write (and read… and walk!) Wishing you loads of success with your writing projects too.
