Welcome to my website and to my first blog post.

I’ve got some exciting news to share!

Not only is my first ever book – Summer at the Castle Café – coming out on 11th May, but I’m also a contender for the Romantic Novelist Associations prestigious Joan Hessayon Award. Not sure I can take much more excitement!

I was very lucky that our local paper picked up the story and wanted to interview me on Tuesday after I finished work to find out more.

I was less lucky that my teenage daughter Erren had picked up the Nori virus and had been up all Monday night with me by her side. Cue strong coffee and lots of it.

Considering how tired I was I think the interview turned out rather well and I’m very excited to share it with you, not only that it got picked up by Mix 96 (you can read the article here).

I’ll be donning my best sparkly shoes in May and heading to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford to see who’s won so watch this space to learn more.
