A Quick Catch Up!

I'm working on two books at the moment - books 7 & 8. They're at very different stages: Book 7 is very nearly ready to be released (more details soon) and Book 8 is in the planning stages.
I'm reading A Year at the Star and Sixpence by Holly Hepburn. It was originally released in smaller parts, but I'm too impatient and had to buy the complete collection to read all at once!
I haven't got anything I'm hooked on at the moment - I'm still in the throes of a Line of Duty hangover. I do quite like watching Police Interceptors though. If I believed in guilty pleasures, this would be one! 
I haven't seen a new release for aaaaages. The last one was probably Finding Dory last summer! I like watching older films on DVD or Netflix, so it was probably Look Who's Talking Too.

My new book, The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea is out soon (28th June) so I'm listening to summery songs to make a book playlist.
Mostly books, writing and Luna!
You can find me on
So that's me in a nutshell! What are you up to? Let us know in the comments below 😊

Book News: Introducing The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea!

I am so excited to share the cover and blurb of my soon-to-be-released book, The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea!

Escape to the seaside this summer!

Mae loves running her little Bed & Breakfast, it’s the perfect place to raise her adorable four-year-old daughter! And no matter how persistently local vet, Alfie, chases her, she just doesn’t have time for men in her life.

Willow is busy building her dream home with her husband, Ethan, but with every month that passes she secretly worries that her happy ever after will never come true…

Melody only intended to stay in the bustling seaside town for a few days to capture the perfect photo. But when she meets Hugo – the charming man in the ice cream van – she decides to stay a little longer!

One thing is for sure, summer at the little Bed & Breakfast by the sea certainly has a few surprises in store…
What do you think?
I absolutely ADORE the cover and I can't wait to share Mae, Willow and Melody's story with you!
The Little Bed & Breakfast by the Sea will be published on 28th June, but it's available to pre-order right now!
