OMG, you just turn round and before you know it, Christmas is almost here again! I always say it, but I really don't know where the time goes. Well, I am back working at Bournemouth University as a Recruitment Administrator and that's where quite a lot of it goes.

Meanwhile, A Change For The Better has been accepted for publication in Norway and I'm very happy to say that book number eight, Never Be Lonely has recently been accepted for publication by Robert Hale Ltd, and book number nine is coming along nicely.

On 6th December I shall be presenting the Annual Winner of Winner's WriteOntheNight prize at Rosie's Wine Bar in Southsea, when all the winning writers from the past year read their stories. I'm really looking forward to that.

Happy writing to everyone and if you're looking for inspiration and a boost of positivity you really can't do better than to subscribe to Flair For Words (link on this site) who don't go in for the doom and gloom we have come to expect regarding anything to do with publishing. The members' 'spotlight' page is always crammed with successes. Just goes to show - if you believe you can, you CAN!
