Hello, and thank you for visiting my site. I hope that you'll return often and always find something of interest about my world and what inspires me to pick up a pen. (This is a figure of speech, unfortunately. My handwriting is terrible!) Here's what I've been up to recently...

Coming up for air!

The work on my novel continues and I’m close to finishing the third – and maybe final draft. Still struggling a little with the ending, though, and weighing up the suggestions given by fellow members of York Writers’ NSG (Novelists’ Support Group). There will be launches in both Ripon and York. Watch this space!

WW After work with Digger

There hasn’t been a lot of time for other projects, although a piece I wrote for Ripon Writers’ Group’s ‘Blast From the Past’ competition went down well and I’ve just revamped it as a feature for Down Your Way. It’s about my time as a Saturday girl in Woolworth’s and has inspired me to dig out some (very) old photographs of myself during those years. Wasn’t I cute! If the article meets with editor Kev’s approval, it should be appearing round about September/October.

RAP bowling

In between times, salsa, voluntary work with the Ripon Activity Project (RAP) and paid work at the Emmerdale studios continue. No new dance or studio photographs to upload, but Ten Pin Bowling at Clifton Moor was enjoyed by one and all.

Ah, well. Back to work now!
