65 – how did that happen?


‘Beware the ides of March’

(Julius Caesar- Shakespeare)


65 today! How did that happen? It only seems five minutes ago that I was 15!

What a week it’s been, starting with Monday 9th 2020 not only launching The Coal Miner’s Son but celebrating the third anniversary of House of Grace.

Monday also gave me my first ‘Chindi Author of the Week’ and first ‘Online book launch’ via Facebook – that was fun – I haven’t forgotten about listing the prizes, winners, and links to guests websites  – just waiting for things to quieten down a little.


Tuesday I should have been attending my first London Book Fair and a Writers’ Summit in London. That was cancelled and although disappointed I was relieved of a day’s break.

Wednesday was our Silver Wedding Anniversary and what a wonderful evening we had at a local Indian restaurant celebrating with friends.


Thursday –  I had a ‘Meet the Author’ event with Crawley College Book Club. It was the first time they’d done this and it was made even more fun when the lecturer for Media Studies contacted me to see if I would do a video interview with his media students following the event. That was good fun and the young people were lovely and professional. I will be given access to the video interview once edited and I will be able to share with you. So watch this space.

Friday – I was up in town at Waterloo in the 1901 club for an informal piano concert/dinner and this was fabulous to reunite with old piano friends from Procorda in Suffolk along with finally meeting one of my fans Chris Jackson.


Saturday – I was playing catch up with work and then of course today is my big day 65 and because I am so exhausted it is a quiet day – celebrations will happen later on in the year.

Watch this space for links to all my blog posts on fellow Chindi authors and supporting authors websites. These will go up next week.

In the meantime if you’d like to catch my final day of Publishing Week and ‘Chindi Author of the Week’ you can find me on Julia Firlotte’s blog discussing ‘Romance in a Family Saga’.
Here are the links to the books in case you would like to order one.
Both books available in Kindle format and paperback.
Signed paperbacks also available directly from me. Contact here for further details.
