Framlingham Castle – A step back in time!

Today I had the pleasure of visiting Framlingham Castle in Suffolk, England. Wow, it was a trip worth taking. In forty-five minutes, my family and I were drinking in the beautiful Suffolk countryside. The views are absolutely stunning, the history fascinating, and the locals, totally charming. As we toured the towering walls, I couldn’t help sliding into my writing hat. There was so much to take in and inevitably, I started plotting a YA Historical romance. Hmm, it...

Blickling Estate – A step back in time!

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...

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.

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...
