Ready Steady We're Off!

Saturday 20th June at 8:30 we'll be legging it! 

We will be setting off on The Avenida, Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote for our 10km run / walk for Cancer Research UK Run for Life! 

So far we have over £300 in donations on our Just Giving Page and we hope we can increase this as we pound the pavements in the heat!

To those who have given a HUGE thank you, it means a great deal to us for your support and we know that money is going to a charity that affects all of us in one way or another.

More pictures will follow, so please come back and find out how we got on.

As always, thanks for stopping by, take care and keep smiling, I will if you will.

Legging It!

I know I should be pounding the keys to finish my latest book, The Last Week in July, but I have taken to pounding the streets! At the moment I can just about do a 10k run and plan to train to eventually enter a half marathon, I'll let you know how this goes. In the meantime, I decided to do a 10k run / walk for Cancer Research UK - Run for Life! I'd planed to run this alone, then decided it would be more fun if my friends joined me.

Sabrina and Susan will join me in a 10k charity run / walk and we hope to raise money for Cancer Research UK in the hope that sooner than later a cure or prevention can be found. To make donating easy I've set up a Just Give donation page and as I write we have a staggering £225. If you are interested in supporting us as we leg it, then please take click here

Thank you so much and I'll keep you updated on how it all goes, for now I'd better dash and go for a run as I need all the training I can get!

From Shorts to Charity!

A few months ago, Gary Walker from Look 4 Books suggested that maybe authors featured on his web site might like to contribute a short story to produce a book that could be sold with all proceeds going to charity.

After several weeks of hard work from a number of the authors, especially Elaine Chissick, The Look 4 Books Medley of Short Stories became a published reality on 26th May 2015.
In total eighteen authors contributed short stories creating a wonderful mix from tales that will make you smile to some that will have you sitting on the edge of your chair!

All proceeds from the sales will be donated equally between two UK charities, Alzheimer's Society, and the Autistic Society in the UK.

Here are a few words on my contribution… Getting Noticed. When Sue Potter lost over six stone in weight and could easily slip into a size 12 dress, all she wanted was for her husband to notice. Desperate to catch his eye, she hit on an idea when passing a car showroom that would guarantee he couldn’t miss her. At least she hoped that would be the case!

These are all top selling authors so you will be in good company reading this collection of fabulous short stories. Note the 18 button! This is because there are one or two raunchy ones too!

Sit back and enjoy!
