Welcome to the blog where I talk about boys and cats, share news and snippets of WiP and snark about the little annoyances without which life would be boring like running out of coffee or accidentally locking the cat into the bathroom...

Welcome to another Season of Cheer post! It's day 27 today, and what could be more cheerful than music? We live in a tiny village. I work from home, and I'm usually quite content not to speak to anyone but the cat all day long. Music doesn't count, of course. Music is like coffee, or a good plot in … [Read more...] about Seasons of Cheer, Day 27: Writing Music
For many years, Boxing Day has been my favourite day of the whole festivities. Mostly because we don't have to be anywhere but home, and nothing is demanded of us. We can do as we please, and for me that meant taking up residence on the sofa to write.My Boxing Day writing spree often ended with … [Read more...] about Season of Cheer, Day 26: Thunder and Ghosts | A Yellow Roses Sneak Peek
