Milestones and Achievements

April 24, 2016 at 12:38 pm

My husband turns forty this week, and in the midst of all the preparations for his birthday party, I’ve been reflecting on different milestones and moments of achievement in my life. I passed the forty milestone a few years ago (I won’t say how many!) and we celebrated fifteen years of marriage last year. Our son will be ten this year, so that will require another celebration, as he enters double digits. These are some recent milestones in my personal life. There have also been milestones and achievements in my writing career. Having The Heir accepted for publication was one […]

Books that become movies

I know a lot of people usually complain when their favourite book is made into a movie. ‘It’s not the same!’ is the common mantra.

Admiration when you don’t expect it

I haven’t been doing too many author events so far this year. It’s been difficult to get myself back in the swing of things. Also, with a new release coming up later in the year, I’m trying to build up to what will be a blitz when it’s available. On Friday night, however, I hosted an Intimo party. Intimo is my favourite brand of lingerie. They provide great quality garments that really last, and since I needed some new stuff, I thought I’d invite others to a party so they could see what was on offer. One of the ladies […]
