Blickling Estate – A step back in time!

So this weekend, my family and I visited the amazing Blickling Estate in Norfolk. This was the birthplace of Anne Boleyn –the Queen of England from 1533 to 1536 and the second wife of King Henry VIII. Anne Boleyn was sadly executed in 1536 but her history is not forgotten. The estate is absolutely stunning and the history fascinating. I got so much inspiration for my upcoming book, Fairy Tale Dad, and not only that, I think I might have a new book coming soon...

Arthurian legends are so close to my heart such that any time a new movie so much as touches on Arthur, his knights, Lancelot, Merlin, Camelot or dragons…I’m bought. But tonight I was so...

Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year! Well, it’s been quite a festive period and I hope you all had a fantastic time. However, like all things, the holidays have come to an end, but I’m still buzzing because when one door closes, another one opens. It’s such a lovely feeling to write a blog on the first day of the year. Already my head is whirling with several New Year’s Resolutions and writing keeps me focused on what I hope to achieve in 2018. I’ve self-published three books so far in the...
