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.

The Marmalade Plot is free today on Kindle

Free book today and tomorrow on Kindle!An adventure for ages 7-10 

When a young blue alien turns up uninvited and requests accommodation, Lena and Sam's lives suddenly get a lot more interesting.

 What with damaged ceilings, broken floorboards and a suspicious mother, it's all they can do to keep the secret. 

Especially when their least favourite classmate at school makes it his mission to find out what they're hiding.

Meet Marmalu!

The Marmalade Plot

I have finally put my children's book on kindle (also in paperback) :0
The link is on the right if anyone wants a quick peek.
The story is for age 7+

I can't tell you how many times this has been edited, loaded and uploaded repeatedly! I finally said, enough! It's there now, leave it be!

There is one problem, I wasn't able to edit the paperback subtitle, so it differs from the Kindle version, which is correctly subtitled 'The Xanlean Exchange', instead of 'Xanleans are everywhere' so I hope that's not too confusing. There are Xanleans in both titles so hopefully that will be OK. I think the only way around it is to unpublish and begin again but, phew, been there, done that!

 As I have probably mentioned numerous times, I think the traditional publishing route is so hard to get into, this may be just what I have been looking for, so I will see how it goes!

This process began in November, it is now February. I think more speed next time!
Right I am off to begin editing, stop for a break, and then procrastinate a little more until March or April.

Happy February! x

Happy New Year, everybody!

I have been doodling on my graphics tablet which was a Christmas pressie, it's great fun, but I need a lot of practice. I'm hoping to do some illustrations for one of my stories with it!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas x
