'Baby Steps' is the second instalment in The Fantasy Girl Series; a collection of novellas following Etta, a young girl in early 1930's America, who discovers her world is full of witches and demons, mystery and danger.
Books I love!
It should come as no surprise that I love books, I mean, I am trying to write them for a living! My obsession with reading started early with classic Enid Blyton, Goosebumps and Point Horror fiction which led me to Young Adult and a lot of movie tie in novels... and, yet... I never blog … Continue reading Books I love!
I feel like I've been harping on about this quite a bit this past week but, to be honest, when you don't have anyone else advertising you kind of have to become your own annoying publicist. One of my short story series, Etta!, is finally available in paperback WORLDWIDE. It's a fun thing to think … Continue reading Paperback Writer…
So you want to write a novel?
I can't believe I'm writing this but... it's almost November, which means it's almost time for National Novel Writing Month [NaNoWriMo from here on in]. I talk about this every year and this year is no exception. NaNoWriMo is a big part of my life and has been for the past six years - this … Continue reading So you want to write a novel?

I have to be honest - I have always loved our local library but I have hardly ever used it. … Continue reading Love your local libraries!

Of course I didn't, otherwise I wouldn't be writing this post! So far I've only read a handful of books [and one graphic … Continue reading Reading failure [& book giveaway news]
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
I have been putting off writing this blog post purely because I don't like to jump on band wagons. Now that the movie has been out for a few weeks I think it's safe to talk about without spoiling it for people! Not that I am going to write any spoilers anyway. I know there … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
Yes, it's almost that time of year. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) takes place in November and for some reason I'm prepping like crazy for this one which I've never done before. I normally just make a story up on the day or a few days before and don't plan what is going to happen … Continue reading NaNo Prep!!
I know I'm not alone in this but it always strikes me as odd when the majority of people I know say they don't do this... I am a serial re-reader. I keep ALL my books* so I have a library of my favourite stories to go back to. Like TV shows and movies I'll generally re-read … Continue reading Re-Reading books
