A glimpse inside....

my little studio...

This is where I paint and write - and I've been trying to make it more arty and pretty - so that its a cosy place to work.

and in other news:

I've received a professional critique on the beginnings of my novel!
Delighted to say that it was mostly good news with just a few "tweaks" to be made. The lady thought that it was "beautifully written, with a lyrical, light feel" and she even compared my writing to the late, great Maeve Binchy!
I am thrilled and spurred on also!

Have a wonderful day, all xx


  1. What a great and creative place is your studio! And I am not surprised that your novel had such good comments, you are a wonderful writer judging from what I read in your posts!

  2. Oh, Pa~~t!!!
