Feeling: Chuffed

Feeling Chuffed – 

Got a great review for All Will Be Well and an article accepted for Motor Home Monthly…Yay!

A beautiful story told in a sensitive voice – this novel is set in WWII and is driven by two strong female characters. It charts their individual and combined development through the challenges of war. As the novel progresses they each, in their own way, become admirable women. There is nothing crass or predictable about this one. I wholly recommend it and applaud the author for the way in which the theme is handled.

It’s Veggie Time!

This week, I’ve been thinking about, and working in, our veggie plot. It’s a great place not only to cultivate lovely things to eat but also developing characters and plot lines. My brain seems to react positively to the physical exertion and starts to germinate all kinds of ideas!  I’ve also subscribed to an online vegetable planner, as I’m rubbish at the whole planning thing and want to make better use of our plot all year round. We also have two new young chickens, Thelma and Louise who are being bullied by the old gals; Morticia and Cruella. The term ‘hen pecked’ is a reality!

Oh and Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Spring is Springin’

Evidence that Spring is a’coming… and not soon enough. This quote by Charles Dickens seems to sum it all up,

‘It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.”

Free Book and New Release

In honour of my new release this week. I’m giving away a free digital copy of my first novel ‘The Duke’s Shadow’  for anyone who signs up to my newsletter (which I only send out to tell you of future publications, so promise not to force feed your inbox.)

I’ve also blogged over at Louise Charles to provide a little insight into the inspiration behind my new publication, ‘All Will Be Well‘, which can be sourced through the following links.
