***BOOK NEWS - ANNOUNCEMENT OF TITLE & TEASER***




 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm pleased to announce the title of my new book that will be out later this year. It's a crime & suspense novel with Hannah Marshall from An Enrapturing Attraction, being the female lead. It is a stand alone & I'm really excited about it....


So here is a teaser from - Wolves In The Woods


"Leading the way, Sergeant Daniel Trent looks as pale and dishevelled, as much as most of the officers on site. Getting an average of two hours sleep a night isn’t doing any of them any good, but when they’ve got the weight of this case on their shoulders, sleep just can’t compete. The twenty-six year old officer has been Marshall’s right hand man on this investigation since day one and she’d watched the once bright blue eyed man, slowly turn into the more muted blond haired boy she saw this early morn. Usually so ‘Uniformed’ in his suits and groomed in a model like way, he has a piece of hair that just won’t lie down and yet seems past caring."

***NEW POEM*** - The Dance

Hello & good evening. I've had a fabulous response to the poetry competition I am running and well, I wanted to share one with you.

The following picture was posted by Louise White, over on Facebook & it stirred many emotions. One being in I wanted to listen to Ronan Keating's - I Hope You Dance on loop!





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Revelling in the moonlight we lie
After an evening of celebration
Exhausted by the music and heat
For today has been the foundation
 
Not two years ago it was different
You thought you’d lost me and life
So when you asked the question
How could I not be your wife?
 
A greater being had a hold of me
One that we couldn’t control or stop
Its power was stronger than mine
And my life you wanted to swap
 
Clasping my hand you wearily said
 “I promise to be there when you wake”
Not one minute did I disbelieve you
There for mine and the children’s sake
 
Hearing the music my eyes opened
The soulful voice of my favourite man
Speaking the words we wished for
As long as life and all came to plan
 
Here we are now, Cancer free
I may have lost my womanhood, my breast
But tonight, together, we have danced
A display of love and strength attest

All Women Are Beautiful



It's Wednesday and I am having a night off from writing...or am I? I guess this blog post could be classed as writing.
As from 3.30pm tomorrow, I will be officially off work for 2 weeks. Yes, it's the Easter school holidays! It should hopefully be a time where I can spend more time with my sons and force my mind to think about anything other than work...So I have started early and been thinking more about my poetry and new novel.
However tonight, I've done some research and actually sat to watch a film...A classic in 'Pretty Woman' on BBC3. Watching it then brought my mind back to my character of Isabel, the main female character in The Attraction Series. She's not a working girl, but still saw herself as being 'different' at some point due to her being. "Plus-Size".

This did lead me to write this excerpt....



"It's just after 1pm and I still haven't found the perfect outfit. Even with Cambridge prices I have enough money, but unfortunately not the right body type for the small independent boutiques that lie in the side streets. I have so many scenes from Pretty Woman running through my head. Different circumstances obviously, but the same sentimental reasons; I'm different and no model."








In the end though, Marc helps to make her feel confident in herself. Love her body and to love herself.
