I’m giving birth tomorrow (sort of)

I remember exactly how I felt waiting to go into theatre for my c-section… the birth of my first child. I was naturally terrified and utterly mad with nerves; in a few moments doctors would be slicing me open, while I was wide awake, and then yanking a crying, kicking, small human out of my […]

9 “UM’s” in 1:45 minutes!

I’m seriously thinking about contacting Guinness World Records after creating this video yesterday. I am convinced I have set some kind of world record. My publisher asked me to make a quick video introducing my book, Burning Moon. Sounds simple enough, right? The final product is only  1:45 minutes long, but despite this, I managed […]

There are only so many ways to say penis! (sex scene writing woes)

“The hard, pulsing shaft of his manhood sought out her most intimate part. The glistening pearl of her womanhood, moistened by the fiery furnace of unbridled passion.  He impaled her on his hot sheath touching her secret centre through the plump, velvet folds of her slick core.”  No, this is not a competition to see […]

Judge it!

I’m so excited to have my two final covers from my publisher, Grand Central Publishing, for the first 2 books in my series ‘The Destination Love’ Series.

No seriously, is that my cover?

Every author knows, there’s nothing worse than pouring your heart and soul into a book, only for your publisher to make you a frightfully, cringeworthy cover. The kind that exists in your nightmares. The kind that you want to put a paper bag over. And what’s worse is your publisher lurves the cover. They think […]

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 […]

No seriously, I’m an author!

Writer Had I known that telling people I’m an author came with the same barrage of predictable questions every single time, I might have had the foresight to arm myself with a recorded, automated response I could play every time someone asks… And what do you do? At this point I know I can look […]
