I’d like to say I’ve been very busy this last fortnight writing my next book which, as some of you may have read in my previous post, goes by the very catchy title of Book No.4. But, alas, that wouldn’t be entirely accurate.

IT'S BEEN ABOUT five days since I finished the latest draft of Under Ten Thousand Stars and sent it off to my wonderful editor...and since then I’ve been doing a bit of thinking, mostly about what to do next… And that is? Well, I’m glad you asked.

I DECIDED ON A love-themed post because the penultimate chapter of this book deals with its loss, and how my protagonist copes with said heartbreaking loss. (Spoiler alert: not very well!)
