NEW Blog site

Here is my new blog site. I’ll still leave this one up for a while, but am moving everything over to Wix, where I have my website. Just makes sense to have everything together and connected where possible 🙂

Hope everyone has a beautiful day!



Busy, busy, busy…

As well as editing The Blue Door Trilogy – I’m about half way through – and spending a lovely quiet day with hubby and the furry children for Valentine’s,WP_20150801_001[1] (so didn’t get much of anything else done yesterday), I’ve been very busy setting up a brand new website and email – since the other is connected with the old site.



The new one looks similar to the old, but with only a few minor differences, (I’m hoping improvements?), and I found it remarkably easy to navigate.

Check it out and see what you think 🙂

If any of you want to receive author newsletters from me, there is now a form for that on the bottom of my home page… something I was unable to figure how to do with my old site.


Hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine’s Day!

Funky Shelves Lookbook

Here are some more fancy ways to display your books, from Café Book Bean, that I thought you all might like, too. I m liking the piano one a lot, how about you?

Cafe Book Bean

I love displaying books in fun and unique ways. I also really enjoy seeing how other people find new and interesting ways to shelve their books. 🙂 So like a good bibliophile I compiled a drool worthy list.

So here is a series of fun and funky bookshelves:

pac-manHow awesome is this one! Maybe it’s just the nerd in me…

Girl Boner

Hello beauties!

I’m thrilled to share with you the Embraceable trailer, featuring me and eight of the book’s contributing authors. It was a blast to make, and well worth the learning curve. (I’ve never done anything quite like this!)

Special thanks to Gabe at Global Voice Broadcasting for making it shine. 😀

Stay tuned for news on the paperback and virtual release party—coming soon! Wishing you a fabulous weekend. ♥

This was EXACTLY what I had in mind for the cover. I mean exactly! Giant KUDOS to Snow Leopard Publishing’s ultra-talented cover designer! He did an absolutely phenomenal job. See what you think 🙂

That English Lady: Cover Coming SOON!

I would absolutely LOVE to give you glimpse of the beautiful cover design samples I received today from Snow Leopard Publishing’s extremely talented designer, but alas, I cannot.

The final version, which is coming very soon—almost there, don’t worry—shall be unveiled in the very near future. I promise you, it will be worth the wait. In the meantime, I ask for your patience and sustained support, as my fantastic publishing journey continues.

I feel privileged to be working with such a diligent, professional, and talented team.


Reassurance for Anyone Opting Out of Botox

August does it again with this superb blog. BRAVO! I agree with everything she has said here.

Girl Boner

Trust me, I get it. In a photo of yourself, you notice lines where there used to be smoothness, or deep crevices in place of faint lines. (“When did that happen?!?”) Meanwhile, continually more women are opting to freeze their facial muscles with Botox—and similar procedures—and regarding every crease that appears, society seems to scream, “Erase!” 

Now in my late 30s, I’ve lived in some of the most looks-centric places in the world, worked extensively in fashion and film and struggled with a severe eating disorder I’ve thankfully moved past. I now spend most of my time in the field of women’s empowerment. While my path hasn’t made me immune to “anti-aging” pressure, it has given me some helpful tools and perspective.

There's beauty and depth in aging. There’s beauty and depth in aging.

First, an important point: I am not out to shun anyone who chooses cosmetic procedures. I promise. Whatever a woman decides to do to her body or appearance…
