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
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. I am starting to get the pre-publication butterflies, which is very apt this time round, and part of me can't believe this will be my fourth … Continue reading Six weeks to go!
This week, I finished my page proofs for The House of Birds and Butterflies. This is the very final stage of editing, when I get sent a chunky paper manuscript with the whole book laid out exactly as it's going to be in the paperback, and I have to read through it a final time. … Continue reading The end of a book
Today is publication day for the third part of The House of Birds and Butterflies.

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2018 – how has that happened? One of my resolutions for this year was to make more use of my website and blog at least once a week, and yet, somewhat unsurprisingly, I have made it to the 11th of January without doing anything. So here is my first, belated … Continue reading Happy New Year!
Just over two years ago, my first paperback, A Christmas Tail, was published. The time seems to have flown by so quickly, and yet, at the same time, I can't believe how much has happened since then.
