There's nothing more likely to throw a monkey wrench into a well-ordered life than moving house. Not that my life is well ordered. I thrive on low level anxiety and loosely controlled chaos. But moving is always better as an idea than as a reality. Moving is the ultimate stressor and delayed gratification generator as… Continue reading Meditation on moving, memories or why I still have that footlocker and my writing desk is staying

In Praise of Billionaires, the fictional kind at least, or why I read romance

Since I began reading romance many years ago and certainly since I began writing romance, I've had a particular affection for the billionaire trope. When I wrote my debut romance it was a foregone conclusion. My hero is a broody, arrogant billionaire. Don't get me wrong.

Sorry it’s been so long since my last post everyone! Personally, I blame the holidays, and the fact that I entered into a food coma basically every night for the last week and a half. Who knew home cooking could be such a deterrent to productivity? After the New Year celebrations officially conclude, I usuallyΒ […]… Continue reading Great start to 2017!
