Once You Lose Your Heart

September 4, 2014
Out now in My Weekly magazine (UK) is a short story of mine called 'Once You Lose Your Heart'... perhaps the most understanding husband of all time??? It's in the issue dated 2nd Sept and on the shelves now.
I also have a short story in the My Weekly Annual 2015 - now on Amazon - called 'Echo Beach'....
Right now I'm editing part one of a serial I'm hoping Woman's Weekly will run later in the year... it's a tricky thing to get right so there are usually lots of re-writes for every single part!
Back to work then..........

Short stories, fairytales and competitions!

August 7, 2014
Well I started writing again last week and this week I completed my first short story in a very long time - submitted a Christmas (!) one to a women's mag here in the UK. Then yesterday I had an email from a fiction editor who I'd subbed a story to back in January, and she wrote to say she loved it and wanted to publish it in the 6th Sept issue of My Weekly. So that's put a little spark back into my step and now I'm writing again like its my profession or something!
A few bits to look forward ...

Life under wraps

July 17, 2014
I realised it's been a while since I posted a blog - since then my life has turned upside down and bears little or no resemblance to what it did before! Everything has changed.....
Obviously my writing has suffered, but the happy news is that I am about to start again. The first thing I'm doing is a serial for a major women's magazine in the UK. That's the first project. Then I will review my supernatural thriller and send it to agents. Then I'll write a sequel for Sam Sweet and 'Expected'  - ...

There has been so much happening in my life recently that I haven't updated my blog in ages! Most of it is personal and can't be made public for a while yet... however, I've moved house and am currently in a rented cottage while more changes are in motion... a lot more... Nor have I done much writing recently. My supernatural thriller is basically on hold, and my next serial is only in draft stage... once the next move is out of the way I'll be writing in earnest.... in fact, I'm going to mak...
