Surfacing ...

I've not posted for a few weeks (slaps own wrist) as I've been giving some light  revisions on my latest Entangled Indulgence book my full attention. Well, almost all of it ...

I have been outside the house a few times (not including Sainsbury's and Le Dump):

I finally made it to Exbury Gardens at its glorious best.

And the amazing walled rose garden at Mottisfont Abbey.

I wish you could smell it - just incredible.

I'll be sharing more pictures from these places in due course as tiny bits of them have sneaked their way into the book that's just been revised and another manuscript too. And this weekend I'm being taken to the Goodwood Festival of Speed! And you know what that means, don't you? Fast cars, planes, millionaires and champagne - hands on research that's just too good to waste. Putting the camera on charge now! My mind is racing towards another book already ...

I'll be back with some pics next week, but for now it's the Post Office and the laundry that await. Poor Cinders ...

A little bit of half term fun

Annie Seaton tagged me in this fun little post. Basically I am going to tell you four things on various topics that you may not know about me. And it’ll kick some life back into this neglected blog!
Here we go:

A lingerie department

A railway depot

A holiday insurance company

Four movies I could watch again and again:

Monty Python’s Life of Brian

Forrest Gump

The Terminator

Being Human

Dad’s Army repeats.

Four Places I have travelled to:





Four Authors I enjoy:

Sue Moorcroft

Howard Jacobson

Four websites I visit daily:



Novel Rank (OCD)

Barnes and Noble (more OCD)

Four favourite foods:

Roast pork crackling

Anything with tzatziki in Greece.

Four places I'd rather be:

Looking out over the sea from my (dream) cliff top Amalfi villa

Drinking fine wine in the sun in my (dream) castle with 10ft walls and no neighbours.

Somewhere it doesn’t rain during school holidays.

With The Exec, anywhere.

Four people I want to tag:

Teresa Morgan
Denyse King (D.J. Kirkby)

This is just a bit of fun, but if you've been tagged and you want to play, please make your own list and link back to me. :0)
