Blogfests are such fun and if you've never entered into the spirit of blogfesting you've been missing out. I've entered a Deja Vu blogfest, in which we post an old post from some time ago. It's just for fun, and the one I've picked is a panto theme. If you take a look out of interest, take note of the characters names! ;)…Continue
There was an interesting piece in Writers' News this month, where lit agents were asked if they thought chick-lit was dead. The conclusion I drew from the listed input was 50-50 yes/no. Some of the lit agents seemed to think that now that hard-times/recession is/are upon us we're looking to more realistic down to earth dreary household/torn dramas. If that is so, then we'll be bucking past trends of looking to escapism in a world of glitz and glamour when things get tough and times are…Continue

So, between Christmas shopping and decorating the tree, why not grab a cup of something nice and join me. It may bring back some of yours. Here's the link :…Continue

I've just written a blog post about using photographs to bring scenes to life when writing a novel.
Most of my novel is set in Siena, Italy where I lived in 1994. I've included a few photos from Siena explaining how I've used them to set scenes.
I blogged recently about how I never seem to finish anything because I get stuck at the middle - check it out here:

As readers of romantic fiction, we are used to the snide comments and dismissive remarks from others who don't share our appreciation or passion for the genre (more fool them, I say!) But I was wondering, when choosing which romantic novel to read next, do we as readers have certain sub-genres within romance which we don't like? And what reason is there behind our lack of enthusiasm for certain kinds of books…
Just listening to Steve Wright on BBC Radio 2 this morning and he mentioned a survey done of people who had fallen in love "at first sight" i.e. on their first date. They were asked what signs they had experienced that made them think that they had fallen in love straight away. Six things emerged that were reported. I am afraid I didn't hear who carried out the survey. These were:
-- a shiver down the spine
-- feeling an emotional connection, like you know the person well (even…Continue

Ladies, I know that we don't often think of science as a romantic topic, but since my book (soon to be "books" because my second romantic novel comes out on the 6th!) deals with time travel, I've had to spend a lot of time thinking about the science involved. So, I'd like to share with you this post that I wrote for my "Nerd-girls, Romantics and Time-travelers blog," and hope you'll bear with me, since it isn't about romance fiction. I just thought you'd get a kick out of…Continue
