thanks for popping in.
I’m an author from beautiful Dorset and live not far from the sea (see below for a picture of lovely Sandbanks beach). My ancestry – I have English, French and Italian blood – is a bit of a mixed bag but I’m a local girl at heart, love the area and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, even though London (a city I also adore) features heavily in most of my books.
I write short stories and modern, pacy romance/chick lit novels and novellas, most of which are published by HarperImpulse, the digital first romance arm of HarperCollins. It still gives me a thrill to say that out loud 🙂 I’m best known for the #LoveLondon series, some of which have charted in the Amazon UK Holiday charts, and one of which – Valentine’s on Primrose Hill – was shortlisted for an award.
I’m working on something different right now, but news of that another time! The main thing you need to know about me is that I love to write and share my stories with people, and when I get tweets or Facebook messages from someone saying they’ve stayed up until 2.00 a.m. to finish one of my books, or that something I’ve written really touched them, it’s the best feeling in the world 🙂 and I always make sure to reply. Amazon reviews are also always gratefully received…
I’m a member of the Romantic Novelists Association aka RNA http://www.rna-uk.org and if I rave about them it’s because they’re the best and definitely the most supportive professional organisation I’ve ever come across. I owe them a lot, especially the readers and organiser of the New Writers’ Scheme http://bit.ly/1hAzt6p. I like to attend RNA events and occasionally deliver writing workshops in my local area.
Apart from the writing, I have brilliant kids, a lovely boyfriend, friends, family and a day job in HR to keep me busy. I also read a lot – and I mean A LOT – whether it’s crime or romance or anything in between. Reading has always been an escape for me; an opportunity to become utterly absorbed in someone else’s tale. It’s only writing that I love more 🙂
It’s great to meet you – please pop in, say Hi and have a read of my blog posts, which are often interviews with other authors, including some fab writing tips.
