So excited today to see my short story Back on Track in the Summer Special of The People's Friend.  I have been trying on and off for nearly 20 years to get a story accepted here and it is great to finally achieve this.  Tenacity is essential for a writer.

In the process, they discover that sometimes, hope - and redemption - is found in the most unexpected places…

Author goes live!



I am grateful to Confluence magazine for organising such a lovely launch night at Poco Loco in Medway - and I got to read my published memoir piece about my late maternal grandmother, plus a few deeply felt poems, also inspired by my upbringing in Peterborough. I was nervous, but once I got going, I enjoyed every minute - such an enthusiastic, warm audience and an honour to share space with so many wonderful writers!

Matty and the Moonlight Horse - all royalties go to Redwings Horse Sanctuary!


Today I have been looking back and was reminded that the first book I made available for kindle was Matty and the Moonlight Horse - an exciting, fast paced adventure for pony lovers of 8 years upwards.  So if you haven't read it yet, please do take a look.

From a writer's viewpoint, Matty is the favourite of my characters.  Kind hearted, bold and impulsive, she is always getting into trouble - but mostly because she cares!

And all the royalties from the Matty e-book trilogy are donated to the wonderful Redwings Horse Sanctuary.

Have a great weekend!
