Tell me Tuesday…. Week Four!

Hey everyone,

Some of you may or may not know that I love America and Canada. I’ve visited many places, New York, Washington,  Memphis, Atlanta, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottowa, Montreal… I just love America and Canada, so it is hardly surprising that I actually prefer American sports to my own. Basketball is netball in some ways but I prefer basketball, it’s much more exciting and speedy. I’m not a lover of American football, but I don’t like rugby.  I don’t do football or soccer either, but one sport I really like is ice hockey! 🙂 What a fab sport!!

So I make it my mission, whenever I’m in America or Canada, to collect ice hockey jerseys 🙂 I’ve got Vancouver Canucks and Washington Capitals, I should have got Toronto Maple Leafs and I regret not buying that one now. So far but I actually have a lot more on my list to buy, New York Rangers because they rock!, Ducks (love that jersey!), Pittsburg Penguins!  I need many more but money is an issue, those bad boys cost a pretty penny but I love them! Next time I’m in America I’m going to a game, I always forget to buy tickets before I leave home.

Anyways, hope that is another thing you have learnt about me tonight 🙂

Until next time!

Tell me Tuesday…. Week Two & Three!

Hey everyone,

So, I didn’t have the time to post last Tuesday’s post and I didn’t think it would be right to post it on another day otherwise it wouldn’t be tell me Tuesday… so here’s week two and three   🙂

Week Two

One thing you may or may not know about me is that I’m a massive Elvis Presley fan. I was brought up on him and his music. I love his films (no matter how cheesy they are!) So as a graduation gift my parent’s-in-law took me to Memphis so I could visit Graceland! Here’s a pic of me in front of Elvis’s house and them me and my husband at the famous gates to his house.



We visited every Elvis related place during that holiday, it is one I will remember until my dying day.

Week Three

I write a lot of my time but when I’m not wiritng or reading, I’m watching films. I love watching films and escaping for a few hours like you do with books 🙂 I have quite a few favourties but for this week I’m going to concentrate on my favourite film scene and it comes from Love Actually. It is the scene with the cue cards and the pretend carol singers. Every time I watch it it gives me goose pimples, I love it but I’m a big romantic at heart 🙂 Here’s a link for everyone to enjoy 🙂

Right, best head back to the writing 🙂 Will be back same time next week with another thing about me 🙂

Tell me Tuesday…. Week One

Hey everyone,

So I decided that people, my followers, readers etc… 🙂 might want to know a little bit about me so in the run up to my new book release of First Soul in 7 weeks time, I’m going to tell you something about myself every Tuesday 🙂 Feel free to comment and interact 🙂

Week One  – Bags!

I’m a woman! That should be the first clue 🙂

I love bags but I’m not a designer bag girl, I don’t really see the expensive bags and gush, I would rather look at the unusual bags and buy those. I love individuality of something really strange, my bags reflect my personality because I am a little strange 🙂 Here’s just some of three of them I use the most often 🙂

The first pic is my Dandy bag, the postcard version. I simply love it, plus it fits everything I need in there, including the books I carry around with me 🙂

The next Dandy buy is the the purse to match it 🙂 I should start saving the pennies 🙂


The next bag is my Gorjuss girls bag. I love these so much! 🙂 I also find that these bags are overlly expensive and they are really different. Plus you can get different gorjuss girl designs, I just love this fox one 🙂

Last but not least, this bag – it just simply rocks!! There are no other words to describe it 🙂

Guitar bag

Do you love bags, if so, what is your favourite, crazy bag? 🙂

Hi everyone,

Just a quick update on what is happening at the moment.

I’m in the process of a final proof of First Soul – Soul Keeper trilogy-  this book will be released in May 🙂 I’m very excited!

Here’s a taster of First Soul (bear in mind this may change with edits etc…)

What do you think you’re doing?!”

The three of them jumped at the sound of an angry voice behind them. They’d been caught by the police. Years of hiding and now, on this night with a map in hand, they’d been caught.

Chuffing great.

They turned slowly. Deyna shrieked and grabbed Phillip. Stephen looked at her. Her eyes were rolling into the back of her head, at least Phillip was there to hold her. Phillip appeared to be handling it better, although the colour had drained from his face a little.

It wasn’t Karl, the local bobby.

A middle aged man looked at them sternly. His translucent frame floated in front of them. Stephen held his breath as the ghost stalked towards them. An actual ghost, he’d never believed in all things spiritual and found himself searching for the special effects allowing him to see such a thing. It didn’t have feet, the bottom of what looked like trousers seemed to sink into the wet grass. He shook his head and closed his eyes believing this to be a dream, or some sort of practical joke.

Opening his eyes, he found that it wasn’t a dream. A ghost was stood in front of them, its face was contorted with anger as it stalked closer towards them. Speaking of its face, the features weren’t right when comparing it to a normal human being. Stephen could see the mouth of the ghost, it was set in an angry snarl. The ghost’s hair was the colour of good strong coffee which was cut in the short, back and sides style that was required for the army. He could see a nose but it was partly blurred due to the fact that he could see straight through it.

He’d always believed ghosts, judging from their portrayal in films, to be some sort of shimmery white form, but this ghost looked rather like the man he’d probably been when he was alive, apart from one thing and it set his teeth on edge with fear, the eyes. They were bottomless black pits, the eyeballs weren’t there.

But somehow, even with them missing, Stephen sensed them glaring at him.

I hope you like what you read, it’s not much but it gives you an idea of their first encounter with the ghost! 🙂 I really love the plot of this first book and cannot wait to start writing the rest 🙂

I’m also making headway with the second book in the Pendle Hill trilogy which is coming together nicely, a passage will appear on here once I’ve done a few more edits 🙂  I’ve also started designing the book cover  for this which is looking great! Book title reveal will be happening in the next few months.

I can’t believe we are nearly in April! Time is definitely flying, I guess because I’m busy. I’ve already done a school visit this year, done a spot on the local hospital radio for their book week and I’m organising more school visits. Hopefully this will be my year 🙂

Just another quick mention, I’m still doing the 500 likes on Facebook so please like and share for your chance to win some goodies 🙂

I hope that everyone has a lovely easter and I will speak soon.

First Soul book cover and blurb release!

Hi everyone,

I haven’t been on here for a while, sorry but I’ve been busy busy 🙂

Just a quick update on what I’m doing at the moment.

I’m drafting Pendle Hill book two (name reveal soon!) which will be out later this year.  There is quite a bit of work to do there but I’m loving the plot so hopefully when it comes out the readers will love it too! For those that haven’t read Returned yet, it’s available to buy from Amazon amongst many other places. Take a look on my website for links

The book cover for the second Pendle Hill book is coming along too 🙂 I have incorportated the same design idea as the first book,  Returned, but there are some different colours on book two. I really like how it looks at the moment! Reveal for this will come later in the year 🙂

I’m also organising several author days for this year. That’s always fun and exciting! I hope to spread the word about Returned and my new book.

On to today’s reveal 🙂 This is the book cover and back cover with blurb for First Soul which is book one in The Soul Keeper trilogy coming May 2013.
