Hootenanny! And other news…

Well, hello. Yes, I know, it’s been a while. In my defence, there’s been rather a lot going on… As you may know from stuff I’ve shared on social media, earlier this year my company decided to make me redundant – a decision, I hasten to point out, that I was more than happy with!…

The Cons are on!

Fresh from the excitement and fun of attending my first big literary event back in November, the DIVA Literary Festival, I’m delighted to announce that I will be attending two other major events this year where you can meet me, get a signed copy of one of my books, and let me thank you profusely…

Wipping things into shape

Well, it’s been a while since I blogged but we can blame illness and NaNo for that. I am now back in the saddle, so to speak, and just wanted to update you on all the latest happenings.  November saw me taking part in the DIVA Magazine inaugural Literary Festival, at the Hilton NEC in…

Sneaky peak at “Miles Apart”

As it’s getting close to launch day for “Miles Apart”, my third novel, I thought I’d treat you all to a little teaser. Click the link below the passage to check out the blurb etc over at the Ylva Publishing website, and put August 16th in your diaries as the day to click the “Add to…

Winner at GCLS Awards!

I’m thrilled to announced that ‘The Club’ won a Goldie! At the GCLS Awards that took place in Chicago on July 8th, ‘The Club’ was one of the winners in the Best Erotica class. To achieve something this amazing with only my first book has me floating beyond cloud nine, and I’m quite sure I…

Just imagine them all naked…

I’ve just returned from Lesvos, in the Greek islands, where I attended the second Lesvos Lesfic event run by Ylva Publishing. It was just as much fun as last year, and for me had an additional element in the form of being the lead speaker on a panel discussion. Now, in my day job, I…

I’m a writer, not a juggler!

Or so I thought. The last few weeks have taught me otherwise, and it’s been a good lesson to learn, this early in my writing career. You see, I had this great (for ‘great’ read ‘naïve’) plan mapped out for the first three months of 2017 – I was going to write my fourth novel,…

To NaNo or not to NaNo, that is the question

The month of November is the home of NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month. As the organisation’s own website explains, “Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought about writing a novel.” The idea is that you pledge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. The outcome,…

Interview with G Benson – writer of awesome

Lucky me! I recently got to spend some time chatting with the amazing G Benson, the author of last year’s hit ‘All The Little Moments’ and the recently-released ‘Flinging It’, both published by Ylva Publishing. I’m a huge fan of her work, and it was great to talk with her about her writing and other things….

LFest – Access All Areas

Earlier this month I was given a fantastic opportunity to appear on the Indie Author Panel at LFest. This is the UK’s biggest women-only festival, and has been running for a few years now. The Indie Author Panel showcased five authors whose work is primarily lesbian-focused, with each of us doing a couple of readings from…

A personal Pride story

It’s the eve of gay Pride in London, and I thought I would share with you a personal Pride story. I work for a large company in central London which has a strong ethos on supporting diversity in the workplace. I’m a member of the office LGBT group, and we’ve been busy planning our annual…
