Hi and welcome.
Hi and welcome to my blog. As you may have guessed, I’m lucky enough to live close to the sea in a beautiful part of Dorset. Life’s been quieter than usual for the last couple of years because I’m vulnerable to Covid and vaccines don’t work for me. There again, that’s given me more time for my writing, gardening, sewing, photography and cooking. I may have had to give up shopping in real life, but we have lovely delivery men and I can still go out and explore my beloved beach, harbour and hills in the quiet times. I’ve learned to love walking in the rain; and coming home to hot chocolate, sometimes with marshmallows and squirty cream. I share my life with a husband, two young adult children and two gorgeous, indulged cats, so all in all, I’m incredibly lucky.
My books reflect my love of a simple, quiet life and the happiness I’ve learned to take in the small stuff . I’m am an early to bed, early to rise type who likes some people - you almost certainly included - but I also need plenty of time on my own to potter and create or just sit in the sunshine and watch the birds and insects.
I’m proud to be described as a ‘cosy writer’ because I reckon there’s more than enough trouble and pain in the world, but nothing like enough dancing in the rain, eating chocolate, scones and jam and pasties, hugging the man you love and having time to do nothing at all. My heroines either already know that or find it out in the course of their adventure, so you won’t find drunkenness or wild parties in my books. But if you like beautiful countryside, old fashioned kindness, cream teas and quilts then I hope you’ll enjoy my books.
