Dear...Anybody?

Local newspaper journalist, Sydney, is like many women. Bored at work, bad hair days, karaoke nights, loving boyfriend and a fabulous best friend. But a huge discovery sends her whole world spiralling downwards and things will never be the same again. She’s lost her job, her boyfriend and, well, everything.
Unlike most women, Sydney’s answer is to resort to binge eating, binge drinking and never leaving her bedroom.
An unexpected job offer comes her way and Sydney leaves London for the tiny village of Bridley to become editor of a countryside magazine, not realising that part of the job means becoming the magazine’s Agony Aunt.
Resolving to make her mark as an editor and to set the problematic lives of Bridley villagers to rights, Sydney uncovers hidden truths, secret loves and the possibility of romance lies in wait behind the counter of her favourite coffee shop.
Is it that easy to turn your life around? Well, maybe not for Sydney …

New Blog!

So, after months of struggling with navigating the blog on my website, trying to seek help for the problems I was having with it and getting absolutely no support (or none that was much use) I decided to come back to good old faithful Blogger in order to share news with you.

I have to admit, I'm not the most handy when it comes to technology (just ask my husband, or, as I like to refer to him, Customer Support). He'll tell you that hardly any IT knowledge I acquire stays in my memory or is of much good if it does. Thankfully, I can just about get my head around Blogger. So here I am!

I'm excited to be back and I'm excited to be using a platform that seems relatively easy to someone like me.

As I sit here, smugly applauding myself for managaing to post a blog post, I remember that I am in the middle of completing a draft of my latest novel to send to my agent. I can do without technical issues getting in the way. I knew that if I didn't get this sorted, I wouldn'…

Nature & Creativity!

If you have a blog and you're not blogging - your readers could start wondering what you're up to! But I have been really busy lately - I promise.

Last time I blogged I talked about ploughing through the edits of my latest manuscript. I have now finished a further edit of that novel and sent it off to my agent. It was a relief to get it over to her. After that I needed to take a break from anything and everything creative. I needed to give my brain a good rest for a bit!

So, I started going ham (does anyone say that any more?) with getting fresh air and taking some form of exercise every day. My Sunday walks have become longer and more speedy and it feels great not to be tied to the laptop for hours on end.


The thing is, long walks and nature often lead to a meandering mind, which for me also leads to creative ideas. Mostly, for me, that means more writing!

My brain is gearing itself up for another book. Don't get me wrong, I love to write. In fact, while writing my last b…

The Trouble With Editing

At the moment I'm ploughing my way through the last book I wrote. I'm doing a major edit and by major I mean major!

As a writer it's very easy to fall in love with your characters. You find yourself getting carried away by their lives and very often the story you intended to tell about them just starts to write itself.

My latest book [Working title: I'm Ella Samuel] was always supposed to be a contemporary romance. In keeping with my back catalogue. Somehow my book went in a slightly different direction and it's very hard to place a book that crosses genres. They don't always work. With the advice of my agent I'm editing the book. Only problem is, once you finished a book, fallen in love with the characters and their story, it's hard to make those changes.

The first thing I had to do was accept that the edit would improve the book. That accepted, the next thing to decide is where to start. What do you cut out, which characters need to go and which plot …
