A #WintersRespite #Readathon - Wrap Up

Best laid plans and all that…



I had 4 books on my TBR for the #WintersRespite readathon, but got through 3… well, considering I gave up on Grey early on, only 2.

However, I did an editing read-through of my own book Keeping Claudia—131,000 words. (Happy to report, that little beauty is safely in the hands of my new editor.)

Poor And the Mountains Echoed has once again been pushed aside... 
(Note to self: Read that book before the summer!)

Because of this, many, many people enjoy his company.

I find the more I smile, the more uplifted and positive I feel at the end of the day. It's such a good feeling, I wish everyone could experience it. The truth is, a smile is such a simple, easy thing to share.

In case you need a few suggestions, try these: Smile and say good morning, hello, or have a great day!Not only hold the door for someone, but step back and let them go first.Say something nice about someone's c…

Keeping Claudia Update

Get your tissues ready

I found myself crying as I finished re-reading my edit copy of Keeping Claudia. These characters have come to mean so much to me, they're like family.

It looks like release will be… (fingers crossed) sometime in April. I really hope you guys will love this story as much as I do.

Your Song sung by Lee Mead (originally by Elton John) was a strong inspiration during the writing.
