Wish You Were Here…

It’s been a while since I updated you with the progress of the novel formerly known as Finding John Smith…so here goes. The title has been revised, revised again, and finally decided. I’m pleased to announce that the novel formerly known as… Read More

Big Girls Don’t Cry…a review

Ok, I’ll probably retreat into my head down a hole thing & refuse to read any more reviews, but I was quite overwhelmed by this one from Debbish. So, I’m sharing. ‘Thinking women’s chick lit…’ Thank you. For more great reviews by… Read More

Friday Five…desert island discs
