Books I have loved recently

In my last blog post I said I was going to do a rundown of my favourite spooky reads, but the week passed, and so did Halloween, and I didn’t do it.  It feels a bit silly writing that post now, when everyone’s pumpkins have been made into soup or gone into the compost, soContinue reading “Books I have loved recently”

Cornwall, Somerset and The End

I haven’t posted on here for ages, mainly because I’ve been eyeballs-deep in my new book.  I’ve been dreaming up complicated situations for my heroine and hero to get into, creating a supporting cast of loveable/amusing/annoying characters, and imagining beautiful settings they can visit.  I wrote those two, blissful words this morning: The End.  SoContinue reading “Cornwall, Somerset and The End”

The House of Birds and Butterflies is published today

Hurrah hurrah, the day is finally here! My fourth full-length book, The House of Birds and Butterflies, is published today as ebook and beautiful (if I do say so myself) paperback.  It’s already had a five star review in Heat magazine, which is pretty amazing.  If you’re still undecided about whether to buy a copy,Continue reading “The House of Birds and Butterflies is published today”

Five weeks to go, and why I love nature reserves

When I was little, my parents took me and my sister for a day out to a place called Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve.  It was quite a long drive from our South East London home, and I didn’t know what to expect.  My initial reaction was terror, because the visitor centre wasn’t open but Mum andContinue reading “Five weeks to go, and why I love nature reserves”

Six weeks to go!

There are only six weeks to go until my new book, The House of Birds and Butterflies, comes out in all its full length, full ebook and paperback glory.

This is it: the fourth and final part of The House of Birds and Butterflies is out today.  It’s called Birds of a Feather, and it’s the conclusion of Abby’s story at the Meadowsweet nature reserve in Suffolk.  Here’s the blurb: Summer is in full swing on the Meadowsweet Nature Reserve and Abby is wonderingContinue reading “Birds of a Feather is published today”

Twilight Song is here

Today is publication day for the third part of The House of Birds and Butterflies.  (I’m a little bit disappointed that Avengers: Infinity War chose today to come out too, somewhat stealing my thunder . . .)  Anyway, part three is called Twilight Song and has the most beautiful purple, twilightish cover.  If you’ve enjoyedContinue reading “Twilight Song is here”

My recent reads

I have read a lot of books recently.  Maybe it’s the fact that spring is a long time coming and going outside isn’t an attractive proposition, or maybe I’ve just got into the reading groove.  Whatever it is, I’m not complaining.  There are so many good books to devour, and here are some of myContinue reading “My recent reads”

The Dawn Chorus is here!

Today is publication day for The Dawn Chorus, the first part of my new series, The House of Birds and Butterflies.  Here is the blurb: Abby Field is living the dream. As events coordinator at the Meadowsweet nature reserve on the idyllic Suffolk coast, every day is an adventure with the birds and the butterflies,Continue reading “The Dawn Chorus is here!”
