I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Be In The Place update

Be In The place - a book set at Glastonbury Festival

I’m shortlisted for an award!!!

Wow! I’m so chuffed! (Do people still say chuffed?) Be In The Place is on the shortlist for The Lancashire Libraries Children’s Book award 2006. Apparently (from what I could find out on the internet) 150 books are read by teenagers and they choose the shortlist of ten books, and I can’t believe that mine is one of them. (Despite spending ages at the computer, I still don’t know what the other nine books are). I genuinely feel so honoured. If any of you who kindly voted for my book happen to be reading this; Thank you very much!!!!

The winner is announced in June, so fingers crossed.

I made it last year, but was too late to write a blog post about it!) This one is pretty quick and easy to make, and is really effective….
How to write a novel – the practicalities of notes
February 17, 2017
In January, a lot people who feel they have a novel in them make it their resolution to get it written; so I thought now would be a good time to write this blog post at it might be helpful. I am currently writing my fourth book (only one published (so far!)) and I think I’ve finally worked out the best way to go about organising my work. This is what suits me the most, so will probably not be helpful to anyone who’s all modern and does everything on the computer, or even on your phone. I’m a long-hand kind-of gal and so notebooks have always featured rather heavily in my writing planning. However this time is slightly different….
