Writing with Friends

I've recently moved and the upheaval really put a strain on my writing. I've been finding it harder and harder to get started and stay started since I'm in between projects.

When this happens, and it happens all too often, writing with a friend often gets me back on my feet. Even though we end up chatting more than writing, we do manage some writing and usually that's enough to put me back to rights.

So, thank goodness for friends! I'm now a few thousand words into the next British & Beautiful novella, moving hopefully forward.

Up next...

While normally following a novel, I'll put out a companion novella, as I've done for the first three books, with Brogues & Babies, it's been a little different. 

I'm diving head first into a novella series, having found that I really liked doing the Flower Mystery series. I've written the first of this new series and it's just waiting to be published! The edits are done, as is the cover. 

British & Beautiful will be a novella quartet, a story in each part of Britain. Wales is up first and then England. Though I normally like setting my stories in Scotland, once this idea came to me, I couldn't shake it and I'm very pleased with how the first came out. I hope you are too!

Brogues & Babies

It's finally done! And out! Felt like it was never going to be finished but now it is, years in the making. My fourth novel, Brogues & Babies. I hope you like it!

Melissa isn't looking for a relationship when she falls into one with a tourist she meets on the street. He isn't like anyone she's dated before and quickly, she's over her head. Melissa must decide what's important to her and where love draws the line before anyone gets hurt worse.

Flower Mystery Collection

With all of the Flower Mystery shorts finished, they've been gathered together in a collection. You can now purchase all three at once, for a smaller price tag! But there is no new fiction in the collection, so if you've purchased the others individually, don't bother with the collection.

Three women are drawn into mysteries that blight their normal, comfortable existences. When they follow these mysteries, things begin to change for them, in ways they wouldn't have imagined. 

All three of the Flower Mystery Shorts are brought together in this collection of 'Every Rose's Thorn,' 'The Heart Thief,' and 'A Lily's Garden'.

A Lily's Garden- Available now!

The third and final installment of the Flower Mystery Collection is out!

Lily's life is full of all of her favorite, comfortable things, like her shop and her garden. But when one persistent customer asks her to try something new, she isn't sure she's ready to make the necessary changes.

A Lily's Garden

Still working through the edits on this short story! But in the meantime, I've finally signed up with Goodreads and I've posted the first chapter (in what has bloomed into a full novella) in A Lily's Garden. You can read it HERE, if you're interested in getting a look before the final in my little trio is out for purchase!

Brogues & Babies

Brogues & Babies is the next full-length novel that I'm in the middle of. Slogging away through it. It seems like forever since I last wrote a novel and the characters aren't coming as easily as they have done in the past. Neither is the plot! I did have it all worked out but misplaced my notes and now can't recall what the twists and turns were. Disaster. But I'm still working on it and it'll all come out in the end.

Hope you're all well in the new year!
