Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.
I’m a self-published author, having started my writing adventure in New York in 2012, when I was based there for three months for work. I’d just got married and was about to complete a house purchase in the UK, but I left my husband to sort all that (as you can imagine, he was delighted) and skipped across the pond to happily shop in Whole Foods and wonder around Central Park.
It was during one of these wonderings that I came up with the idea for my trilogy, and, given all the free time I had at that point, I decided if I didn’t start writing it then and there, it would never happen, so I did.
Once the first book was done, I found out first hand that it really is hard to get an agent and a publisher through traditional routes. So, wanting to get on with writing, I self-published on Amazon and have been on the most amazing learning journey ever since. Thankfully, my books have received great feedback from readers and book bloggers alike and I love being part of a supportive, international writing community.
And, of course, I LOVE to read, preferably fantasy (current favourite is Sarah J Mass) or romance (think Sally Thorne). I don’t care if it’s high fantasy, low fantasy, or anywhere in between, so long as it moves quickly and has lots of plot (literary masterpieces do not find an appreciative audience here…I’m a heathen, I know).
This blog is about book reviews, writing, publishing and marketing, and the odd general thought on other topics as and when they inspire me. Please let me know what you think in the comments – it’s always better if there’s a conversation, and be sure to sign up to my newsletter and follow me on Instagram for all the latest goings on, giveaways and more.
Welcome! I can’t wait to hear what you think!
