It's publication day for my fourth book in the Spotlight Series, Keeping up with the Kershaws. In all honesty I have barely been able to focus on this publication day. It's been at the bottom of my pile of priorities. Not because I don't love the book. But because my youngest son has been on … Continue reading Publication day!
Every year when Dancing on Ice hits our screens, the rumour mill cranks into high gear about who is hooking up off the ice. It's not surprising that romances happen given the intense hours the pros and celebrities spend together in training and rehearsals. My Dancing on Ice inspired novel, Strictly on Ice, aims to … Continue reading Love on the ice…?
I love watching I’m a Celebrity... Get me out of here! I grew up with Ant and Dec on TV, first of all on Byker Grove, then later on SMTV: Live, and I love the fact they now present one of my favourite shows. The programme has been running since 2002 and has seen some … Continue reading I’m a Celebrity – best moments
What makes you feel Christmassy? One of the things I love about this season is the moving sound of the Salvation Army brass bands, playing on snowy streets in the winter. It never fails to make me teary-eyed. My new book, Strictly Christmas Spirit, was based on some of my own real-life experiences when I … Continue reading The TRUE story behind Strictly Christmas Spirit
It's here! Book three in the Spotlight Series has landed! Strictly Christmas Spirit is my first ever Christmas novel, and I absolutely loved writing it, not least because some of the book is inspired by my own life experiences (a topic I'll be blogging about very soon!) Strictly Christmas Spirit has a touch of Strictly … Continue reading Publication day – Strictly Christmas Spirit

I feel so terribly disappointed when there isn't a happy ever after, although I know that sometimes the story just has to finish that way. For example, the ending of Me before you, by Jo Jo Moyes, had me in … Continue reading Happy ever afters

In the 1990s and early 2000s, boyband stars were kings. My bedroom was plastered with posters of Take That, the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Boyzone, and Westlife. I listened to A1’s albums on repeat, sang along to Blue, danced along to Five, swooned to Boyz II Men. So when I was writing my latest heart throb … Continue reading Top of the Pops
I’m a big fan of survival shows. I love the drama, the shock factor, the entertainment. Survival shows inspired my latest novel Celebrity SOS: Love Survives, about a group of British celebrities in Alaska. Two of the group, Finn and Katerina, share a past and must find a way to survive not just blizzards and … Continue reading Love survives
I don’t know what it is about survival shows and films that enthralls me so much. I just love to see people tackle the most inhospitable environments, watching as they take on parched deserts and wild jungles, scale mountains and battle blizzards, all from the comfort of my own sofa. Survival shows have long fascinated … Continue reading The thrill of survival
