Well, what a busy couple of weeks! I can’t believe how long it has been since my last blog and do apologise for keeping you waiting. How rude am I? So here is a longer-than-usual blog; a blog with knobs on, as it were.
I was thrilled and excited to be chosen as one of sixty ‘top authors’ for the Clic_Sargent auction. People can bid to have a character take on their name in my next book, while donating to a very worthy cause – the Sargent Cancer Care for Children – all at the same time. I am in … Read the rest »
