Hi everyone,

It's been a while since I've been putting anything up on my website for various reasons but now it's time to bring the whole thing together. I've made some changes that have been a good thing. I've decided to make myself into an Indie Author rather than be tied totally to Amazon. Not there's anything wrong with Amazon. I just wanted the freedom to be able to sell my books on Kobo as well, which I couldn't do while I was with a certain part of Amazon. I want all my readers to be part of a family. MY family of my readers. I don't want to be in a position of saying well you can have this book and sorry, you can only have this book so I did what I felt was right for my readers.

I've been working away at some new books. I'm not an Author who takes four or five years to get out one book and that's not a criticism of other Authors. We're all different and I would never criticise another Author for the way they work. At my age I haven't got enough life left spend four years writing one book, so I have to spend less time on a book and hope that at the end of it, that it works and my readers are pleased.

I'm doing a catch up on my books in another post, so I'll end this one here.

Take care,

My latest novel is The Costellation Diamond Mystery. Personally I think this is the best think I've every written, but I suppose I would say that, but I'm saying it because I really think it's true. It took me over two years to write. As you know I love to write thrillers with a twist and there are more twists in this than you would ever believe. This is a stand alone novel though, although there will be several in the series, all stand alone novels. It's available now on Amazon Kindle and Kobo,

Hi everyone, I'm pleased to say I'm back after months of having a web site that froze every time I turned around. I'd be the first to say that I'm not internet savvy as they tell me the saying is and Jack my brilliant son and Editor took one look at it and said Mum don't use Chrome with Moonfruit it doesn't like it.

Fine, I won't use it them, so I've got my blog back and my web site back and I can catch everyone up on what's going on and the next time I get problems it will be call for Jack !.

So I'll publish them so everyone knows what been going on and that I'm still here and haven't dropped completely off the planet /

I feel as though I should start this the return of the something or other, although I'm not exactly sure what or who the return of the something or other is ! Firstly I had computer trouble big time as in very big time. The whole thing crashed although it had been playing up for a long while. My website was completely frozen and then the owners of my website got themselves in a tizzy and cut my site off and we had to spend time trying to sort that out until they finally sorted me. It all took time, but breath - and at last I'm back.

Good news is that I've got another book out. The first in a new series of cozy mysteries. This time about a knitting groups. I know there are a lot of cozy mysteries out there. All brilliant and all covering different kinds of things. My group are the Newberry Kniters who are all older ladies and meet in their local Church Hall. One cold afternoon they decide to buy a lottery ticket to see if they can win £10 for a bottle of wine. Slight problem - they win the Jackpot!. They book a cruise to go to the biggest knitting shop in the world. That's when they're problems really begin.

So why not check out Knit One, Purl One, Murder. Available on Amazon Kindle. 99p. Please remember it's a Cozy Mystery. Light hearted, with humour and a bit of murder along the way !

This book caused a lot of controversery for some reason. It was an erotic thriller people. Not a dirty book. It sold an awful lot of books and the reviews were very good. I know some people don't like erotica and I fully respect that but some comments did make me laugh. A woman of your age writing a dirty book !

Umm yes - do you have to be young to write an erotic thriller then? Did you research every bit of that book fully ? At my age - I wish !!!!

Talk again soon people. Take care.
