Countdown to Release Day

Only 10 weeks before my new historical romance is released. His Runaway Marchioness Returns is set in 1876, and is a marriage of convenience story with a twist (as you’d expect from me!). Oliver and Lily have been married for ten years and lived apart for all of them. Oliver, a self-made man, has no …

Snippets from a Writer’s Life

It’s a cliché because it’s true, the older you get, the faster life whirls you by, and since the pandemic changed the world, I feel like we are travelling at warp speed. I had barely touched down from my fabulous trip to Barcelona with my mum and sisters, and I was off on another trip …

Most Intriguing News

Image @debbieharephotography At last, I can finally reveal that my second novel co-authored with my fabulous friend Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, will be released in March next year by Mills&Boon and Avon Books, and it has two fabulous covers.

Snippets from a Writer’s Life

Since I was last here, I’ve been buried deep in writing (and re-writing, and re-writing) my latest historical romance for Mills & Boon.

Cat-Sitting, Chilling and Taking Stock

For the last two years, before and after lockdown, I have been working full out with very little breaks between books. In February this year, Sarah Ferguson and I handed over our second book together (A Most Intriguing Lady, more on this soon), and I then jumped straight in to writing a Christmas novella which …

What I’ve Been Reading

Fiction I haven’t had a lot of time for reading in the past few months, so I’ve mostly been turning to comfort reads in my fiction, and continuing with three quite different detective series that I’ve been very much enjoying. A Winter Memory, Lulu Taylor. I met the very charming Lulu Taylor at the Yeovil …

What I’ve Been Up To

The simple answer is, writing – so I’ve seen a lot of these lovely sunrises from my window, but not much else. Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York, and I have been working on our second book together, so for the last few months there’s been barely a day when we’ve not spoken, emailed or WhatsApped …
