Paperback Writer!

Good morning! I am trying to stay upbeat and positive today in spite of the weather.  Now, oddly for someone who’s lived so much of her life in hot climates, I don’t like very hot weather.  But I’m getting a bit tired of putting the heating on in the second week of June!  But the house has felt so damp and cool the last few nights that I’ve had no option.  I’ve been doing the hokey cokey with the washing.  It’s been in – out – in – out because of the sudden downpours and so shaken all about with … Read the rest »

Amazing Grace

Reviews are an author’s life blood. Our readers can’t imagine the thrill it gives us when they write a review.  Okay – sometimes a one star review sends a writer running to the coffee or something stronger! – but you learn to accept that your work isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea.  So it’s a bit galling when Amazon – yes THAT Amazon, the champion of writers and indie authors – won’t let you post a review.  This was the case when I tried to post a review for Kim Nash’s Amazing Grace.

I have to explain that … Read the rest »

The Day That Kept On Giving

Tuesday 21st May 2019 was a day to remember.

First of all, it was the cover reveal for my latest book Singles, Set and Match – and………….drumroll……….. HERE IT IS!!  Ta – daaaa!

At the moment it’s with an army of book bloggers who have kindly agreed to take part in my blog tour, which has been organised by the fabulous Rachel Gilbey (and who I’ve driven nuts!).  And that’s exciting and frightening at the same time.  Eeek!  Crossing all fingers and toes they’ll like it.  … Read the rest »

Wanna Be My Friend, Janet?

Janet Street-Porter is a Marmite celebrity; with her forthright views, distinctive, quirky look and abhorence of being hugged by anyone outside her immediate circle, you love her or you can’t stand her.  I fall into the former category.  I admire her for being herself and telling it as it is and I tend to only watch Loose Women when she’s on the panel.

Janet Street-Porter

Janet comes across as a strong woman with a large circle of friends so I was a bit surprised to find out that she’s admitted to being lonely.  Apparently a couple of months ago she … Read the rest »

Toasting With Lemsip

Happy New Year!

Goodness me, it’s been a while since I put fingertips to keyboard and posted something for you. Sincere apologies! But there are two fundamental reasons for my extended silence.

The first, it’s all been bad news really and nobody wants to read about other people’s problems; most have enough with their own without having to listen to mine. 2017 was a tough old year – three hurricanes, the sale of Avocado Cottage falling through four times, banging my head against a brick wall against so many people and things in both Antigua and UK, finding myself with … Read the rest »

Hello, Australia! Hello, World!

What a brilliant surprise earlier today…… A lovely lady – SB – contacted me after seeing my I Feel GOOD post – all the way from…….Australia!! Isn’t it amazing? I’m sitting in Avocado Cottage, Antigua, West Indies, posting a blog about my wonderful Little Yellow Pills and how much good they’re doing me and she’s reading all about it more than eleven thousand miles away! The wonders of technology never fail to amaze me. And I’m delighted she wants to deal with her oxidative stress and get really well again. Oxidative stress is the cause of more than two hundred … Read the rest »
