Christmas is coming!

That’s it for the year – work’s finally finished and I can’t wait for the holidays to start tomorrow. It’s been a year of extreme ups and downs – so many fantastic people have been lost along the way – but we owe it to them, and to ourselves, to celebrate life to the maximum: love your friends and families while you still can.

Here’s wishing you all a very merry Christmas and a healthy, happy New Year!

I’ll be posting some snippets from my next book soon – this one’s for adults, rather than children, so keep your eyes peeled…

Don’t forget, if you’re lucky enough to be given any Amazon vouchers, my children/young adult books are available and longing to be read. There will be some special pricing in place just after Christmas, so check them out here:

Thank you for caring enough to follow me, have a happy time, relax, enjoy life and I’ll see you all again next year!

Hedgehogs and the ‘flu


As you may have guessed from the header; I’ve got ‘flu. I suppose I should be grateful that it’s struck now rather than over Christmas, but I’m missing the last full week of school, meaning I feel guilty as well as ill.

So what, I hear you ask, has the ‘flu got to do with hedgehogs?

I’ve always liked hedgehogs: pretty, grunty, creatures that loudly trundle around my garden eating cat food I put down for them in preparation for the winter – can’t have them going into hibernation without full bellies, can I? I make sure there’s a large pile of leaves for them to curl up in safely and, ignoring the flea aspect, I think they’re really cute…

So, as I’m actually rather kind to them, why has one crawled into my sinus cavities?


Just found this – I had no clue it had been posted! Thank you very much.


Rise of the Dragons

Clary Ferrie has escaped the clutches of the terrifying Unseelie and fled to the safety of the Seelie Empire.

The merciless Unseelie, enraged by her flight to freedom, go after her best friend, Sam, in a bid to lure her back to Earth.

Meanwhile, on Earth, all Sam wants is to find out if his best friend is alive. With the help of a couple of most unlikely allies, he has come up with a plan to enable him to both find Clary and keep out of the way of the evil ones.

Will the strange rock he picks up in their old teacher’s house be able to help him? Or will it unleash a force that could cause the deaths of thousands?

In Unseelie, only one person knows the truth: the dragons are not extinct…

Give the gift of reading this Christmas!

I admit I’m feeling a little emotional at the moment and – in case you’re wondering – I’ll tell you why: The Seelie Queen – the finale of The Seelie Princess Trilogy – is done, dusted, and has just been released! (Cue large cheers, gallons of wine, and a celebratory dance or two around the house!)

These books have been such a big part of my life for so long now; from original concept, to planning out what will happen, to getting it all down on paper, and finally, putting them into print, that now they are done a large part of me is sorry to say goodbye to Clary and Sam and their adventures.

So, to find out what happens to them both, get your copy here:



Plus, if you still haven’t read the first two books in the series, (and you should, they’re a great read for kids)  you can get them here (alongside my other books):



Hint: If you think you’ll need five minutes peace at the end of a frenetic day, they’ll make fab Christmas Stocking fillers for your kids… 🙂

Merry Christmas!
