Dear Reader

Welcome to my homepage

Hello and thank you for visiting. This was new to me a couple of years ago and without a sharp shove from my firstborn, I would still be none the wiser.  He kindly set up my blog and since then, through trial and error, I’ve found out just enough to run it myself! I confess that since my discovery of widgets, I’m delirious with delight.

I divide my time between Sussex and Cumbria. I’m always on the look out for a quick, easy and cheap recipe to share; I tramp the fells at every opportunity and take photos whenever possible. I’ve recently left the NHS and am now a church verger and regular volunteer at the National Trust’s Petworth House. In my spare time, I write.

My 2018 challenge involved dipping my toe into the world of jogging. After three months, I managed 5k and stopped! A mangled nail as a result of an over-enthusiastic descent of Coniston Old Man was my excuse. I plan to get back into training this year and for updates, you can join me via my jog blog posts.

I’m a regular contributor to Whispering Stories, a glorious reviewing blog created by Stacey who would love you to pop over and take a look. In addition, I accept a few paperbacks directly from authors or publishers. My reviewing policy can be found by following the link below:


**I am currently clearing a backlog so not taking new requests for the time being**

Having gone down the traditional publishing route for my first two books, my literary project for 2019 is learning (with some help from the aforementioned Stacey) how to self-publish my third novel.

Thank you for dropping in and please have a browse around the topics on the ribbon above. You can also find me at:

I appreciate all feedback and respond to every contact.

With every good wish and kind regards,
