“If you can’t say it at Christmas, when can you, eh?” – Love Actually

Well, what a cracker 2017 was, and so keen to jump into 2018 with both feet! And, as Natalie says in Love Actually (don’t tell me you don’t love that movie too!):

“If you can’t say it at Christmas, when can you, eh?”

My heartfelt love and thanks for all your support this year – I really couldn’t have done it with you, my constant cheer squad.

Update on Book Two:

Every week now I’m asked (especially at every Christmas party!) when the next book will be ready … so here’s the latest:

The manuscript is complete and now in the capable hands of my structural editor Alexandra Nahlous – you may have read some of the books Alex has edited: The Husband’s Secret and The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty or The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas, amongst many others.



The illustrations are done and, come the new year, I’ll be starting the design of the cover, followed by a complete proofread and format and then (the fun bit for you, lovely readers) distribution of ARC copies to volunteers for review and preparation for THE LAUNCH.

Don’t forget to drop me a line if you’d like to be an Advance Reader, ie. the recipient of a free e-copy before the final book is printed for mass distribution, to read and review in return for uploading your review to Goodreads, Amazon, your own blog etc. prior to launch.


Finally, wishing you all the most wonderful, restful and, most importantly, fun! Christmas. I leave you with the opening page of Book Two, just to whet your appetite for what’s to come,
