The Replacement Wife blog tour round up part 1

28 September 2015 / Leave a Comment

I'm half way through my blog tour for The Replacement Wife. I've been asked lots of challenging, interesting and funny questions. I was also asked to do a post on 'why the grass is always greener on the other side'. Here's a round up of some the posts on the tour so far ...

Ideas for my stories come from many places – from conversations with friends or something that I’ve read in the newspaper.

The Replacement Wife is released

2 September 2015 / Leave a Comment

My novel The Replacement Wife is now released and available as an ebook (HarperCollins Impulse). Now comes the fun part ... I get to hear what other people think about the novel! The relationship between a book and a reader is like a series of uncertain blind dates ... sometimes a book and a reader are incompatible, but every now and again a book finds a good match. This week I feel blessed to have received an insightful and contemplative review of The Replacement Wife - this reader has gone above and beyond the role of reviewer, P.J.'s reflections on my novel deserve 5 stars and I want to share them here ...
