With only three days to go until the White Rose Author Event you could say this week has been an incredibly busy week for me. Preparing and bagging up goodie bags and organising swag for my stand. It is amazing how much work goes into these author signing events.

I am so excited to meet many of the talented authors that I have been networking with over the years but have never met face to face. There are around 50 authors signing at this huge event and I am really looking forward to it. There is nothing more rewarding than meeting readers/fans face to face. I have been preparing for this event for months, from purchasing lots of beautiful swag, personalised gift bags, gold, foil wrapped, heart chocolates and a 6ft roller banner for my stand. There are so many other things to consider too, like making sure you have a good stock of business cards, flyers and so on.  Not to mention booking your hotel room and travel arrangements. York City is a three-hour drive from Birmingham, so I will need to set off early in order to get to York in plenty of time for the Meet and Greet on Friday evening. And then finally, what will I wear on the day! Thankfully, being super organised has its benefits and I have my outfit for both days sorted and packed already.


If you live in and around the York City UK area then why not drop by The Park Inn Radisson on Saturday 13th May. You can buy tickets on the day too if you do not already have one. This is a great chance to buy many signed copies of great books and mingle with us authors too… Hope to see many of you there.

Here are my chosen titles for the event, which I will be signing on the day…  I look

The buzz is all about the 2017 White Rose Author Event taking place at the Park Inn, Radisson Hotel, York… Only 7 days to go! I cannot wait. There will be 54 authors from around the world all signing books at the big event. Tickets are currently on sale at Event bright. However, you can purchase tickets on the day. I am an attending author at this event and I have some beautiful goodie bags for every customer. Yes that’s right, every customer who purchases a signed copy of my book or books on the day will receive a luxury goodie bag too.

York city is a beautiful place, much like Edinburgh, but on a smaller scale. Very pretty with amazing architecture. I have been preparing for this huge event for months now and very much look forward to meeting some of my fans as well as new readers gained along the way.

Over the years I have connected with and made friends with many fabulous authors on social media. I am so looking forward to finally meeting them face to face at this event. There will be so much happening on the event day and I hope to see you there…








This emotion-charged military romance will have you on the edge of your seat. Emily and James are voiding love at all costs. Both feeling the hurt from past tragedies and both refusing to experience anything like it again. Until fate intervenes when they least expect…



NEW RELEASE: Amelia The Mother book #3 (Amelia series)

QUOTE BY AMELIA: ‘Journey through life with conviction…’


It is release day for Amelia The Mother… For all fans of Amelia’s Story and Amelia’s Destiny, you will have followed Amelia’s arduous journey through her life. You will have cried with her and laughed with her. Now in her forties, Amelia is a mother and she uses her past as an example of ‘How not to parent.’

Amelia has suffered two great losses in her life in recent times, losses that test her strength and devastate her completely. In her usual candid manner, Amelia weaves her emotions like never before, baring her soul with such honesty you cannot help but feel the impact of her every word.

It is often said that real life is stranger than fiction – how true this is… Unlike fiction, true stories don’t always offer the resolution people want to hear. Not all things can be fixed and not all mysteries can be solved, however, Amelia has fought hard and searched hard to find many answers to unsolved mysteries in her life and many have been answered in book #3.

While I contemplate my journey thus far, I wrap my hand around my hug mug and sip my coffee… I think about my younger-self and wish I could go back in time and whisper in her ear, ” Everything is going to be alright, Amelia. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other no matter how hard things get.” A moment of sadness envelopes me, while a loan tear trails down my cheek… I brush it away and compose myself. I have many moments like this, moments where my inner thought journeys back to the past and reminds me of how lucky I am. If only my younger-self knew that there was happiness at the end of her grey rainbow. I tell myself that some people, myself included, experience challenging times in their lives that test us beyond our permitted boundaries of reason. That reason is not clear at the time. The only thing that is clear is the long climb ahead.

My beautiful daughter, Lilliah, is growing fast! Sometimes, I wish I could stop the world for a moment and climb off, just to catch my breath and take it all in…

“Well, I figured as we would not get to spend our first Christmas together, I thought it was only fair to bring it forward!” Joshua took Angelina by the hand and led her up the creaky wooden steps. He unlocked the thick wooden door and stood aside to let Angelina walk in first.
As they entered, Angelina gasped. “Oh wow! This is so beautiful, Joshua.”
Joshua closed the door behind them and Angelina walked around the lodge with her mouth agape. The log fire was burning and the heat warmed up the lodge. There was a smaller Christmas tree to the left of the fire and two presents already wrapped, sitting pretty and just begging to be opened. Joshua went straight to the fridge, pulled out a bottle of chilled champagne and grabbed two glasses before turning to Angelina.
“I wanted it to be special. I hope it’s not too much for you? I just wanted to make sure you miss me while I’m away!”
Angelina turned to Joshua, “This is perfect. Oddly enough, I was thinking earlier how much I was going to miss not spending Christmas with you… I love it. All of it. You’ve made me feel like the luckiest woman in the world! Now, are you going to crack open that champagne?”
“Stand back, I have no idea how the champagne was handled before it reached the lodge!”
The cork flew with a bang. Angelina almost jumped out of her skin and Joshua laughed while pouring them a large glass each. They sat down in front of the open fire, watching the burning flames and listening to the crackling wood. Joshua’s large arms wrapped loosely around Angelina and she had never felt more complete in her entire life.
