Thank you for visiting my website.  This is where I share my writing life with my lovely readers, all the other writers who sustain me and anyone else who just happens to be passing by.

I am thrilled to have a writing website.  Like all the women I know in my life, young and old, I have a multiplicity of roles. I am personally – and in no particular order – novelist, wife, daughter, mother,  journalist, cleaner, laundry maid, cook, bottlewasher, finder of lost items, taxi driver, purveyor of food to be disdainfully ignored (the cat), provider of chews, ear jiggling and walks (the dog, who is at least pathetically grateful for any attention at all) and a hopelessly long list of other functions, big and small, which I juggle continuously and largely unsuccessfully every day. With clients, kids, elderly parents and pets to look after my poor husband barely gets a look-in. He occasionally complains, the dog gets more attention than he does but – as I point out in reply – she’s considerably more persistent than he is. And cuter.

I do love my writing though… I’ve been taking every opportunity I can get to disappear into a world of my own for years. My life in Sussex inspires me to write feel-good books about subjects that I find endlessly fascinating, moving and funny i.e. people, how they think and the things they do to each other – all in a beautiful setting, of course, with proper intelligent heroines, hunky heroes and happy endings.

It's such an important discipline to write every single day: Even after ONE day away... re-reading Tuesday's 1,000 words before I dive in today - my hero gives my heroine a surprise present and even I don't know what it is.

Isn't @FrenchNicci just so articulate and incisive when talking about her impressions of Harold Shipman? An extraordinary wordsmith. This is a "must watch", a three part @BBCiPlayer series. Fascinating.

And obviously I appreciate that previous tweet is unforgiveably self-absorbed given all the crap that's happening. That is all.

Listen, universe, I got the most brilliant, beautiful (cut-price) dress from Mint Velvet. Would it be too much to bl**dy ask for me to have a party to actually wear it to at some point in this millennium? Just a single date in the diary to look forward to? Thank you.
