Always You: a short story

I am so pumped to be able to share my first short story is now up on Amazon! I’ve been drawn to short fiction in recent times because I’m a slow reader (I want to speed up my reading though – let me know if you have any tips for me) and I love sitting down for 15 minutes and finishing a story in one sitting.

The format works for me as a writer too because I love fast-paced action. This means, when I’m writing romance, I get to the smooshy stuff quicker! And who doesn’t love smooshy stuff.

Always You is a quick 15-minute read about rekindling love long since past. It’s about forgiving yourself and accepting things out of your control and what it takes to move forward.

You can grab a copy of Always You for Kindle for free right now!

I’d love to know what you think.

Colouring in fun for Easter

It’s Good Friday which means I get to spend the morning with family at our annual Good Friday breakfast. With lots of kids around it can be hard to keep everyone occupied which is why having a crafty thing (or two) up our collective sleeves is always a good thing.

Colouring in is always a good way to pass the time. Here are a few Easter themed colouring in pages to keep your little ones (or big ones) occupied.

Office Inspiration #12

I have a thing for dark walls and grey scale. I think it works in this space because there is so much natural light. What do you think about this office space? Are you a fan of dark walls too?


6 droolworthy libraries

One of my life goals is to cultivate a fantastic collection of books and house said fantastic collection of books in an equally fantastic library. I’m going really well in the accumulation of books part. So well in fact that my collection has spilled out of its bookcases to inhabit a large proportion of our wardrobe. The things we do for books, right?

I could look at pictures of libraries all day, seriously. If you’re the same, I hope that these pics satisfy your thirst.
