Announcements! The Bonnie Bonnie Banks

Well, it's finally here - the end of my maternity leave. Who knew it would go in so quickly? However, as I type I am fortunate enough to have my baby girl beside me destroying building blocks and pretty much everything in the vicinity is being launched off the table. Yes, working from home has its benefits. I would be a snotty, mascara-running mess (if I ever wore mascara!) if I had to put baby Antonia in nursery to go back to work, so thank goodness I get to stay at home with her and write.

- Sorry, just had to stop for a quick chorus of Hey Diddle Diddle - she needs entertained you see!

NOW, for my other big announcement, although if you've been eagle-eyed, you might have spotted this on FB or Twitter, although I was very subtly answering questions posed by readers,  not announcing it - there will be a NEW BOOK out on 1st December. It won't be What If, which should be out in the spring, but a Christmas book! I love Christmas, always have, have wonderful memories of Christmas, so over the next few weeks I will be telling you lots about it, but for now, I will be a little bit cryptic and tell you only this.
It's not set in Glasgow, but in a fictional village near here:-







And it features five principal characters - three female, two male. I'll share the title with you soon!

That's all folks.  Now that I am back from mat leave, expect more posts, reviews and general book-related goings-on.

Oops, almost forgot, for those of you still to pick up THE DATING GAME, it has been reduced for its birthday week to celebrate its first anniversary to 99p/99 cents. Get it here -

have a great week

    1. thanks Fiona, my comments are somewhat delayed as I was finalising the edits on The Christmas Spirit. I agree, I couldn't leave her now. I would be a wreck - she's amazing and so fun to be with.

    1. I know, hon. My own fault - I took mat leave in Feb, 6 weeks before she was born. Just so glad I get to stay with her every day. She's a hoot! Will send recent pics soon. She's even more adorable now x
