Snippets of what I get up to when I'm not writing...

From time to time, I put some shoes on and go outside. Yes, honestly! Although most of my time is spent hunched over my laptop, writing down the adventures of my imaginary friends, I do occasionally mingle with real, live people. And when I do, I sometimes post about what I've been up to in my news pages.

So, if you want to know what I get up to when I'm not writing, read on...

April roundup

Quite a bit of news to share with you this month.

First of all, the Harlequin Historical authors are getting a lot more active on facebook.

We’re posting lots of fun facts and “just for fun” quizzes, as well as news about all our latest publications. So if you fancy letting us know which tiara you’d prefer to wear, and you are on facebook, do come and “like” the page to join in.

And also, I have been to have lunch with my Novelista friends again, this time to celebrate the publication of a “pocket novel” from Beth Francis – “Promise of Spring.” She made us this lovely cake, and we toasted her with bubbly.













Last, but not least, I went into Manchester recently to meet up with fellow Harlequin author, Sarah Mallory. Both of us have recently reached the milestone of having 25 books published by Harlequin, which we thought well worth celebrating.

We also swapped the relevant books. I gave Sarah a copy of The Marquess Tames His Bride, and she gave me a signed copy of "The Ton’s Most Notorious Rake"

Can’t wait to read it – but not until I’ve finished my current story, which has the working title, The Duke’s Disgrace…







20th February
launch party 5

This month sees the publication of my 25th book with Harlequin Mills & Boon, “The Marquess Tames His Bride”, so off I went to meet up with my writer friends (otherwise known as The Novelistas) for a little celebration.

I made up some little goody bags to give away, containing chocolate hearts and some little silver coasters (as 25th is usually known as a silver milestone) and bought a white chocolate covered cake from Marks and Spencers to share.
