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...

‘Shadows of the Past’ is on its way!

Back garden June 2016

Having finished my novel – all 120 000 words of it – I’m treating myself to some down time in our back garden today. Writing it has been a labour of love as well as a hard slog.

The cover is still to be decided upon and I’m awaiting final critiques and endorsements from fellow writers who’ve been kind enough to read the manuscript, but then it will be all systems go to publication!

  1. Hello Maggie, I’ve just caught up with your news. You must be feeling very pleased to know your book is in the final stages before publication.

    The fact you’ve sat down and just got on with it has inspired me to get that old draft of my novel out of the drawer and blow the dust off it.

    Good luck with your book.

    Kind regards, Debbie
