Monday Coffee

Tonight we are sitting outside, watching the stars.  The moon has shone her heart out this weekend and even helped eclipse the sun.  I felt it would be fun to sit and watch her as we sip our hot chocolate, french roast, Americano or different teas.

Usually I share other bloggers and tell you about their weeks or interests.  Instead, I’m going to sit next to you and share some fun questions and answers with you.  I got this idea from the wonderful V-Pub. Check out his answers to the questions….once you’ve finished your drink of course!

So, don’t hog the blanket as we cuddle and watch the stars together!

1. Your very first car?  A Landrover.

2. Your first friend?  Catherine.  She was my friend throughout junior school.

3. Item you have that you have had longer than anything else? My lucky pig – until my son lost him! Click to read the story here.

4. What you order the most at Starbucks? Classic or hazelnut hot chocolate.

5. Body parts that are double jointed?  None but I’m still pretty flexible.

6. Name a shortcut that you take in your daily routine? 

7. Lets say you become the opposite sex for one day. What would you do?  Rebuild my patio, probably walk around shirtless whilst building and scratch the nether regions (just to see what the big deal was about it!)

8. Craziest place you had sex?  Now that would be telling!

9. What was/ is your favorite subject in highschool? Literature 

10. Your very first pet?  A cat and a chameleon.

11. The first toy you have memory of?  Beefo, our stuffed hippo.  My brother still refuses to give him to me after thirty years!

12. What do you spend most of your day doing? Writing, walking, working, tidying books.

13. What channel on TV do you watch the most?  My Sky planner.

14. What friend do you miss the most? The ones that meant the most.

15. What is your favorite holiday? Christmas.

16. What would be your ideal day?  To get in the car and drive to the beach with the sun beating down and a full day of fun in the sun.

17. Tennis shoes or sandals? Tennis shoes.

18.  Slow dance or fast dance? Slow. 

Now there were many more questions, but I’m having too much fun sitting next to you chatting.  Tell me about your weekend and did you get a chance to visit Hugh’s blog hop?  Let’s order another cup and chat…

Walking On Sunshine Blog Party

I’m at Hugh’s Walking On Sunshine blog party and there are some incredible blogger’s I’ve been to visit so far.

Whilst I wander around the blogosphere, I thought I would take the chance to share two special bloggers with you.  

The first blogger has amazing insight and a way of telling stories about her day as a doctor in a funny yet compassionate style that keeps me coming back for more.

Please take a hop over to Victo Dolore- Behind the White Coat | Beats a real human heart…


The second blogger is Melissa Barker Simpson.


She’s a published author, accomplished blogger and feeds her inner geek by contributing to a fellow blogger’s site called Sourcerer.  Her style is fresh and sassy and on her blog she has a special place for Lance Legion and his many alter egos.  Don’t forget to say hi!

Right I’m off to see some other blogs, but don’t forget to visit the lady behind the White coat  and Mel and say hi!  I’m sure they will be happy to see you.  

Please share the love and spread the word about blogs you love too.

Blog Hopping!

I have been chosen by a fantastic blogger, ronovanwrites, to answer a few questions about myself and my work.  Let’s first give a brief breakdown of the person who nominated me…

Ronovan blogs with a purity of spirit that has his followers enthused by the poetry and general topics  he touches on. Not only does he take the time to contribute his own work, he promotes other bloggers through interviews and posts that highlight the strengths of each writer, bringing unknowns like myself into the limelight! If you like positive narratives from a person that inspires others to overcome illness and share a part of themselves, check out his site at ronovanwrites@wordpress.com.


Now onto the questions asked.



My main focus is on my new novel called Falling Into You, a crime romance.  The book delves into temptation in marriage and the consequences thereof.  I am building characters which will feel as real as the people around us and the reader will be drawn into places we only want to imagine as reality.

For my younger readers, I am still tackling Ginger and Garlic – a little story about two young chicks and their search for a forever home.  Illustrating this tale has been challenging!

A Tale of Knots is awaiting its turn for pics to be added to the paperback version as the ebook is already available.

There are other stories in the pipeline just waiting for their chance to become reality, but for now, I think I have enough on my plate!



The stories I tell have a mixed flavour.  Instead of following the romance between two characters, I try to add a voice to the background noise. I love to leave the baddies with an option to come back and wreak havoc on our unsung heroes.  My main characters have big flaws, showing just how human they are.



I enjoy the challenge of creating stories that draw you in and make you want to strike the villains, scream at the weak characters and move with the action heroes.  When I achieve this, I am happy!

A big thank you to Ron for nominating me to join the blog hop.
Here is my list of wonderful writers I would like to invite to the blog hop:
