Loving your work, readers!

Wowzers!  More than 6000 of you have bothered to click on my titles.  That is incredible, thank you very much.  And thanks to you, yes you personally, for looking at my profile, I really appreciate it.

It took me a long time to write Shouldn't Be Alone, it started with a dream, and I woke up before I knew what happened next, so I decided to write the ending.  But then the ending kept not quite being the ending, and more characters kept demanding that their stories were told, and here you have it, a huge long rambling story about people who I somehow love even though they don't actually exist outside my head.

The Philpotts Letters was always part of Shouldn't Be Alone, but I have published them separately as they are much shorter than the other chapters, and I wondered if they might appeal to a different audience.  They can be read as stand-alone letters, but are published at the point in the story where they fit.

Shouldn't Be Alone book 2 was born when I ran out of chapters after 99!  I would have split it differently and reconsidered the title if I'd known that was going to happen, but life's a learning curve!

Bad Timing is still being written.  I don't know what the  middle is going to bring, let alone the end, and I'm writing it with a friend, so it's all dead exciting, but slow going.

Please let me know what you think, I'd love to hear from you!  

I'm happy to receive requests for reviews but will only respond if a) you've commented on my work, b) you don't mind honesty.
