No seriously, a blog award?

I started this blog precisely 7 days ago.

It is a journey that is very different to most people’s, it is a journey that many authors frown on too- I have since discovered to my dismay. They frown and raise eyebrows because I didn’t […]

Someone pass that woman a razor!

The 15th of March might have been an ordinary day for you. So ordinary in fact that you might not even have noticed the little sucker pass on by. But I noticed it.  Oh yes, I did. I noticed it because it was the day my 3rd book was due to my publisher. Perhaps some […]
