Remember, Remember – My Blogging Schedule

To celebrate the UK launch of The Italian’s Blushing Gardener I’m blogging over on on Friday, 5th November and my monthly slot at is on Sunday 14th. Then on 17th November I’m being interviewed by the Minxes on I’d really love you to drop by and post a comment, for the usual bribe of a signed copy!

Competition Time!

There’s still time to enter my latest competition: nip over to for details!

Went out for a lovely romantic dinner at the Stonemill Restaurant last night, just me and my lovely OH. Then there was a lovely moonlit walk, followed by a drive home through the forest. It was magical.

I Love Technology

They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. That’s true – one blogging webinar and I’ve started pressing buttons all over the place. How did I get here? I have no idea. Will it work? I don’t know, but I’m experimenting with all sorts of things at the moment as I love chatting to readers, writers and other interesting people.
It’s currently 3pm on Friday afternoon, and my brain is in meltdown after a whole week of writing interspersed by hideous domestic dramas, so I thought I’d kick back by trying making my own blog. As a technological dimwit (the title’s a joke, in case you hadn’t guessed) I’d welcome any help. When it comes to this site what you see is, quite literally, what you get. What’s the best way to illustrate a blog? What are the things you love to read about? How often do you dip into the blogs you follow?

A signed copy of my next Harlequin Mills and Boon Modern Romance, The Italian’s Blushing Gardener, will go to the sender of the best hint, tip or nice, polite suggestion!
