Happiness is …

Happiness is when your book sits next to the author you have admired for many years. Recently, Maggie’s Child had a price reduction and I tried out Facebook Ads and the book reached more readers around the UK. When I logged onto Amazon, I couldn’t believe my eyes. The pictures will explain why I have a wide smile thanks to Barbara Erskine, Sharon Maas, Danielle Steele, Philippa Gregory, Dilly Court and Josephine Cox.

How incredible is that?! Sitting there amongst famous authors has fired me up to keep writing and never doubt myself. I will, we always do, but I just need to look at these pictures (which will be framed and on my study wall) to remind me of how far I’ve come.

I live in the UK, in the seaside town of, Dovercourt~Harwich, where I enjoy writing novels. I've written historical romance/suspense, Medical romance and my latest WIP is in the crime genre.

Seeing my books in a Suffolk (UK), library. Over the years I've written short stories in a variety of genres. I've also won a few poetry contests, my first was at the age of twelve, (a poem about the Bangladeshi war). I also won a children's short story competition where the prize was a first-aid box, I was so proud but my husband found it amusing because we owned two pharmacies. My articles have been published in magazines both in the UK and Cyprus. I am also featured in various places on-line. When I am not writing, I enjoy making greetings cards, Cross Stitch, fishing and the company of my little granddaughters.
