Thank you for visiting my website. I am a saga writer, living in beautiful North Wales. Moving here was the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, but my writing is inspired by my Mancunian roots.

 

I am represented by Laura Longrigg at MBA. My books are published by Allison & Busby (hardback, ebook and paperback), Magna Large Print and Isis Soundings (audiobooks).

 

Join me on my Facebook page. I am always delighted to accept friend requests from readers.

 

You can also chat with me on Twitter.

Look what's at a bargain price on Kindle! A Respectable Woman is just 99p at the moment. I don't know how that price will last. Go and grab a bargain!

It's just over a week until The Sewing Room Girl is published. Many thanks to all those of you who have pre-ordered - that Kindle price is irresistible!

 

More news:

 

You may recall that in October I went on a writing retreat/holiday with four writer friends. If you'd like to read about it, Jane Cable has written a short article for Frost Magazine, which is an online lifestyle magazine. Jane has caught the spirit of our break perfectly - part work and part holiday. Here's the link.

 

Incidentally, starting in the new year, I will be a regular contributor to Frost Magazine, so I hope I'll see you there.

 


 

Currently, I am working on:

 

November is National (actually International) Novel Writing Month and I have signed up with the intention of ploughing through book 6 and getting it finished. Who knows, maybe book 7 will get started as well...

 

In last year's NaNoWriMo, I reached the magic 50,000 word target by the skin of my teeth, as you can see.

 

 

You can also see those plateaus where hardly anything got written. This year my aim is to have none of those!

 

I will be posting a screenshot of my daily stats and chart every day here on my Welcome page; and a record of all the screenshots will be on my blog.

 

Here are my stats for day 17 - and I've had a great day. I've written 4225 words - and my bar has shot up above the par line. Now I've got to make sure I get lots written tomorrow. For more details about my writing day, click here to go straight to the blog.

 

 

My Blog

 

I post a fresh blog once a fortnight at the weekend. Generally, the posts are to do with books - writing them or reading them - but other topics also creep in. Do take a look and leave a comment if something interests you.

 

Throughout November, I will post my daily NaNoWrMo stats page on my blog. Any messages of support will be gratefully received!

Living by the sea:

 

I love living in Llandudno. We've been here for five years now, but that "Wow! We really live here," feeling never goes away.

 

Take a look at some of my favourite photos by clicking on the Llandudno tab.

 

The latest section shows my favourite place in the whole world. Scroll down to the bottom of the Llandudno page to see where I mean.
