Happy New Year

Unbelievable as it may seem, it is the end of not just another month, but another year. It hardly seems a moment ago that we raised our glasses and toasted a New Year.

Down here on our little pebble in the ocean it has been a year mixed with highs and lows where tears of laughter and sadness flowed and sometimes at the same time! Now as we wipe away the memory of those bitter sweet tears, what really stands out is that our year was filled with health and the love of each other. What more could we have asked for?

Thank you for taking time out to visit my blog, thank you for putting up with my ramblings, but more than anything, thank you so much for buying and reading my books. You have no idea how honoured I feel that that you took time out to lose yourself in the lives of such unforgettable characters as, lottery winner, Doreen Wilkinson, more than meets the eye, Jack Hoskins, the powerful and evil, Squire of Satchfield Hall, the heartbroken, Celia Bryant-Smyth. A generous act that turned into a nightmare for Jane Leonard. A young mother unable to face the future who returned home, Maddie, aka Sunnier Climes. Idealistic school teacher, Anne Simpson. Love them and leave them, Billy Smith. A happy family woman, Kathleen Mitchell and torn between her husband and her lover, Shirley Burton.

Magnolia House, Satchfield Hall, Sometimes It Happens… and Storm Clouds Gathering.
Emotional, passionate and moving stories.

Wishing you and your families a very happy New Year, may it be filled with love and laughter, health and happiness and that the only tears that are spilled are those of joy.

All the very best with a heavy sprinkle of sunny smiles

Free! Festive Short Story

Amazing, we are already in the last month of 2013, just where has this year gone? It seems only yesterday we were taking down our Christmas tree and putting the trimmings away, yet in the next couple of weeks we will be pulling them all out again!

I admit to loving Christmas and this year I decided to write a short story about a family Christmas, Next Christmas Will Be Different is the title. Here is the blurb… When the O’Reilly family gather for the festive season it is a time for catching up, eating too much and making promises, but can the promises be kept?

I am delighted to say that Amazon have allowed this short story to be a free download, so it is my little gift to you to say thank you for all your wonderful support. Knowing you are there makes a huge difference.

Here are the links:

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will enjoy my little short story festive gift.
