Happy Bookiversary To Me! 

My debut novel The Second Love Of My Life was first published here in the UK a year ago today! It was a dream come true to hold the book in my hands and see it on the book shelves. And it still is.

I still receive messages from readers who have enjoyed the book and that is always the most wonderful feeling. Getting published was a long journey for me, and for most writers, so knowing the book has found a place in someone’s heart just makes it all worthwhile.  

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who got a copy and supported the book’s release (and who are still supporting it and me!). Being a writer can be lonely sometimes and it’s easy to doubt yourself so knowing that someone has enjoyed your book is a huge boost and you guys have put a smile on my face so many times since publication.

Lots of love and hugs,




My Favourite Feel-good Fiction 

When you are nervous to switch on the news because the whole world seems to be descending into chaos, fiction becomes an escape route, you get to enter into different worlds from your own and lose yourself in someone else’s story which naturally has a happy ending. 

We could all probably do with a bit of an escape this week so here are my favourite feel-good reads to help. These are books I’ve re-read when I needed a pick-me-up:

Anna and The French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins

I Capture The Castle – Dodie Smith

Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen


Bridget Jones’s Diary – Helen Fielding

On The Island – Tracey Garvis Graves


Losing It – Cora Carmack 

The Help – Kathryn Stockett 

Slammed – Colleen Hoover

Easy – Tammara Webber 

And, of course, Harry Potter! 


And if you’re in the UK and you need another fiction escape my debut novel is just 99p on Amazon Kindle now!
