When I almost gave up on writing…

Today is the publication day of Cold Blood, the fifth book in my Erika Foster series. Publication days are always very exciting, and nerve wracking, knowing that this is the first time readers get to hold a copy in their hands. I spend the day wondering how many people are opening the book for the first time, and reading the words I’ve worked on so hard for the past few months. I hope that I haven’t let my readers down, because it’s readers who have given me the opportunity to write full-time, and for that I am forever grateful. My first ever publication day was March …

Coco Pinchard 2 and 3 now available as audiobooks!

Hello everyone, I’m putting my head up for air, as I’ve been deep in the edits for Erika Foster book 5. I know lots of writers say they’ve been in ‘the editing cave’, but I don’t like to call my little office a cave. It’s very cosy, with smooth walls, lots of light, and two furry puppy dogs who like to sleep at my feet. I wish I could tell you more about Erika Foster 5, as I’m having to call it for now (there is a title, and the cover is almost ready) but I am sworn to secrecy. Stand by for some news in …
