Long winded list to let you know I have finished my novel ... Woo! ... Woo! Next step? ... See above list.
Just to let you know I may not be around for a while ... but I'll be back!!!
Thanks to everyone for following my blog and giving support.
I HAVE SOLD BOOKS, WRITTEN BOOKS, ILLUSTRATED BOOKS, PUBLISHED BOOKS, STUDIED BOOKS, COVETED BOOKS, VANDALISED BOOKS (THOUGH, I WAS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD AT THE TIME: HAVING BEEN LET LOOSE WITH CRAYONS), GIVEN PUBLIC TALKS ABOUT BOOKS, BOUGHT BOOKS (I PAID 400 FRENCH FRANKS ONCE - £40.00 - FOR A BOOK IN FRENCH TEXT THAT I CANNOT READ), DESIGNED BOOKS AND LAST, BUT NOT LEAST, I OWN A BUSINESS ABOUT BOOKS ... YET, BOOKISH THOUGH I MAY BE ... NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A BLONDE WITH A PEN!
My favourite things are books, pets and houses. I once owned a publishing company called Pumpkin Press and now own a cleaning business called House Proud. I am a published author of two books and have edited a third. I have a degree in English. I continue to write.
