For further details on how to do this, go to my website…Continue

I'll never forget when the song Fallin’ Slowly, from the movie Once, won the Oscar for Best Original Song - up against three, count them, three from Disney’s Enchanted. Glen Hansard received the award with co-writer and co-star Markéta Irglová, gleefully shouting, before he was dragged away from the mic, “MAKE ART!” I wrote those words on a piece of paper and stuck it to my fridge. I hadn't seen Once yet, but did shortly after, and found it…Continue

Wow what a fast paced read. I love strong hero's with super secrets to unravel. Packed with action.
Characters beautifully drawn in a few words - SAS conjures up a handsome courageous soldier.
I can't wait to read the rest of it.
I've given it a review on Amazon.

It's a bodice-ripper in the old sense of the word, yet set against a real backdrop with real people featured alongside imaginary characters. My other historical novels (none submitted to publishers) have done "so…Continue

I'm currently planning some new content for my female fiction website, Trashionista, and wondered if any of you lovely ladies here fancied taking part in some features?
Over the coming months I'll be looking for authors to submit writing-relateing tips, stories about their own experiences in writing and publishing and quite possibly some 'yay or nay' features/debates.
If anyone is interested in taking part, please let me know! Just thought I'd give…
