About Me

My photo
Hi, welcome to my blog, I am a writer of short stories, children's and YA novels . An acceptance from People's Friend finally made me a published writer! Yeah, happy days! I have since had stories published in The Weekly News and The Last Laugh anthology. My main love is writing children's/YA novels...I'm now enduring a fruitless search for an agent... I also draw and paint, I like to draw animals (usually my adorable crazy cats!)Occasionally famous people and motorcycles.

Happy Sunshine!

Wow it's hot!!
I have made it through two exceptionally hot (compared to he dreariness us brits are used to) days, without burning my milky white skin! Factor 40! I've been good, coming in out of the sun at midday and such, wearing a hat to avoid the usual headache.
I've been painting in the garden, with my cats trying their best to knock over my brush water. It's been so lovely. sigh.
I have written a short story also and have subbed it by email today, so I'm feeling pretty good about a productive day so far.
I hope you're all enjoying the weather, whatever you're up to, and be careful not to burn!
Just off to make tea now, I really don't want to put the oven on! Arrgh!


  1. Good for you for being careful in the sun. I hope your submission gets accepted. I keep trying to get my book published, but I haven't had any luck yet. Perseverance!

  2. Yay!!! Well done you for finishing AND submitting your story. I am everything crossed for you - GOOD LUCK!

    Wasn't today a scorcher? Phew! Salads and ice cream methinks! Hope you had a lovely tea break.

    Take care

  3. Hi Janie
    I know, it makes a change, I'm usually burnt to a crisp. Yes keep trying is definately a phrase I'm used to! Best of luck for your book too!

    Hi Old Kitty, Thank you! Enjoy your summer foods! I always think it's easier to keep the pounds off in good weather, with all the cold water drinking and the salads instead of chips! Hmm, never works though, probably because I finish my 'good' meal with a bar of chocolate or a cornetto!

  4. I'm not fond of too much heat, so I'm glad it's cooled down a bit here now.

    Well done for being so productive. Keeping everything crossed for your sub.



I appreciate all your comments, thank you!
