I know I've been very quiet lately (well, quiet for me, that is. Which means you could probably only hear me from the moon). And I have to say sorry for that, but I've been quite busy, one way and another. There's been the day job, book type thingies (hello, Lowestoft!) and spending time with DD2, who is moving out to Australia at Christmas, so I'm packing in as much seeing her as is reasonable.
So, what do I have to say to you? Right. Well you might not be aware, but I have a Christmas Novella due out on 06 December! At the moment you can only pre-order through iBooks, but it will be available for all platforms. Here's the blurb...
Who are the boys of Christmas?
Mattie Arden has just escaped from a toxic relationship so when, a
few days before Christmas, she receives a letter informing her that she
has inherited a house from her great aunt Millie, it’s a welcome
Except it comes with a strange proviso: if Mattie wants the house,
she must fulfil Millie’s last wish and scatter her ashes over ‘the boys
In the company of her best friend Toby, Mattie sets out for the
seaside village of Christmas Steepleton in the hope of finding out the
meaning of her aunt’s bizarre request.
Whilst there, a snowstorm leaves them stranded for Christmas, and
still no nearer to finding ‘the boys’. But as the weather gives Mattie
time to reflect, she realises the answer to the mystery might have been
under her nose all along –and that’s not the only thing …
It's a very 'rompy' sort of book, if you see what I mean, lots of dashing about in thigh-deep snow, as much as one can dash in thigh deep snow, looking for clues.
And here is a lovely picture of three of my offspring, Fern, Will and Addie, during a long winter walk!
