I am pleased to announce that ‘A Christmas Eve Tale’, a  perfect bedtime story to read to  your little ones over the festive season is about to be released for sale on Amazon.  This enchanting rhyming story is a very easy and enjoyable read for both you and your children and depicts the magic of Christmas Eve. 

As a child and to be honest even today, Christmas Eve was and is one of my favourite days over Christmastime.  The build up to the big day, the excitement of what Father Christmas has in his red sack for you, the singing of carols, leaving out the mince pie and sherry for Santa and carrots for the reindeer and of course, there has to be an obligatory Christmas movie!  To say I love Christmas is probably a bit of an understatement.

Please click on the book above to be re-directed to the kindle version or follow the link on my book page for  your copy of this lovely story.  You will be able to choose either the Kindle version or if you are buying as a gift or just prefer to have the keepsake of the actual paper back this will also be available soon.  Until the next time, I wish you a very Merry Christmas!

Beginning to feel a little festive?  I have actually started to put up Christmas decorations, this is really early for me, I usually start 1st December but this year I just needed to bring out the sparkle a little bit earlier!  With that in mind, I thought I would share my fun Christmas poem with you (for grown ups!) - I hope that you enjoy it and I wish you a very ‘Sherry, Merry Christmas’.

Tis the season of cackling witches, broomsticks and spirits from the other side! What a fantastic way to start off your Halloween with a ghost story - ‘The Ghost Inside Me’ is available in paperback and Kindle format via Amazon. 

The inspiration for the book:  I inherited a beautiful old antique bed that we had restored to its former glory by a gifted French polisher.  When we first placed the bed in our spare bedroom, I would sit in a chair and admire the beauty of the wood, the curves and carving details.  I imagined the person who had made it originally and the people who have owned it over the 150 plus years of its life and wondered about its history.  Eventually, my brain cogs began to whirl and I just couldn’t stop myself from thinking about the story that was evolving in my dreams at night. 

Since having the book published the bed has been promoted and now sits beautifully in my own bedroom.  I have to admit, that whilst my book is entirely fictional, I was a little nervous the first night I slept in it but I can honestly say, it is a very comfortable bed and |I sleep very well in it!

Happy reading!

How are you doing? It seems to be the question of the moment and at this moment in time it is said with thoughtfulness and with an actual interest in the answer.  There have been so many times in my life when I have been asked by someone, ‘how are you today?’ and after starting with my reply of ‘fine, thank you,’ I am cut short before I can carry on to tell the person a little more.  At the moment though, if you answer with ‘fine, thank you,’ this is then questioned.  ‘Are you sure your fine?  Really fine?’

So, I hope that you are fine and enjoying the time that you have at home, if that applies.  My hubby and I have been isolating in our home sine 11th March, thats’ quite the long old  haul.  We are very lucky, we have a lovely garden in which we’ve been able to spend plenty of time and as we live in a rural village, the local walks are special.  There is something magical to see every time we venture out for our daily walk, just like the picture on the right I took only a few days ago.  A secret path to an unknown world perhaps?

For those that have not been in isolation, I hope that reading my books will help transport your mind to a different place and take you away from your worries about the day to day.  Please continue to stay safe and most importantly stay well.

Well, we are certainly living in unprecedented times in England at the moment.  Boris Johnson, our Prime Minister, gave his updated statement yesterday which has left most people in conflict as to what to do and whether to go out or stay home!  Whether to visit our family or not.  As the guidance is so vague, it is up to us to make sure we do what is right and safe for ourselves, our family and friends and for the time being, we are sticking to the stay home, stay safe rule!  At least this way I will have more time to put into my current work in progress.  The only problem is that I have a garden that I adore and two fur babies who like to play and when the weather is so glorious, as it has been, it is very hard to drag myself away and sit at the computer.  Thankfully, today is a grey old day and it looks like rain is imminent, so at the computer I sit.
