January’s results are in …


As you can tell, my efforts at blogging fell by the wayside … again! Although, for a very good reason.

My goal to write 500 words a day was a huge success, resulting in over 30,000 words being added to Courting Danger during January.

Now, I’m on the final chapter and will finish the first draft this week.

And, other news …

Whilst I’m not a better blogger, I have made massive progress elsewhere. My book, The First Wheel, prequel to Courting Danger managed to hit the Top 100 in Amazon’s Mystery, Thriller & Crime category (PAID) for Short Reads last weekend.

Not a bad start to the year, methinks.






Dreams can come true and mine was to live in Spain forever and ever ....  Well, after studying languages many years ago I became totally enamoured with all things Spanish, I finally made the big move for a more 'relaxed' lifestyle in 2003.  Since then, I have been teaching Spanish to Ex-pats and translating. Also, I trained as a Community Manager (Social Media) so that I have a genuine excuse to be on Facebook, Twitter and the Internet for hours on end, but then I started to write. My first attempt was for NaNo 2012 with 'The Nasrid Charm' (a story set in Spain and the Afterlife.) Like most first drafts, this is in need of serious revision and has been placed on the backburner, while I pursue my mystery stories. I'll get back to it - one day :)
