Spin-off news

Trumpet at the ready ... BLOW!

Thanks to the hard work of my agent Suzy Jenvey at PFD, I've just signed a two-book deal with a UK publisher.
I truly believe this has come about as a result of the experience and confidence I've gained from being involved with the Romance Spinners.

It's a bit of chicken and egg. Editor Cheryl Wright read some of my Young Adult novel about the girl and the ferret, and liked my style. She invited me to contribute to The Enchanted Faerie anthology. That gave me the boost to start seriously looking for an agent for my novel. One thing fed into the other.

I am about to get into serious edits with my UK editor, and I also need to deliver a second novel. I've never been so busy and I couldn't be happier.
