Happy bookiversary to me! Today marks three years since Daring to Wish, my debut book, was released into the world. Just as September is the month you release your children into their new class, school, college, or university, Sept 13th 2013 was the day I said farewell to my book baby and put it into the hands of others.
I say book baby because regardless of the books I've had published subsequently, Daring to Wish will always be my favourite. Did it hit the bestsellers list? Nope. Did I burst into the authorly world and leave a dent? No, it was with a whimper and I didn't so much as leave a smudge. BUT - I enjoyed every second and every word of it. Why?

Hello and a warm welcome to my wonderful new blog!
‘Welcome Home’ isn’t solely a welcome to a new website, it’s also a welcome home to being ‘me’ again. Family life and a much needed house move were a complete distraction from writing and I always feel that writing should never be forced, or you end up missing that vital ingredient. The love! If I’m not feeling it, then you, the reader, won’t be feeling it either. So I took a rather lengthy time-out.
Now I’m happy to say that I’m back and I’ve found me again. Sure, family life is still chaotic but a sparkly new website, which I love, has set the cogs turning once more and has managed to revamp me too. That all-consuming urge is back. I want to write, I want to read and I’m certainly back to dreaming.
Take a look around and feel free to peek under the tabs, I’d love to know what you think. I hope you’ll continue to follow me on my blogging journey as I tackle writing a different genre and share book reviews.
