Exciting News!

Fibromyalgia – My Personal Experiences is now available on Audible!

Check out the sample!

The wonderful Cecily White produced and narrated the book for me. When I first heard her speak, I knew she would be perfect! Her soft, soothing voice complemented the tone of the work – hopeful, uplifting and with a little humour thrown in here and there and the results were … well, you can now judge for yourselves!

Fibromyalgia My Personal Experiences

Why I Wrote This Book

When I was told that I had Fibromyalgia I had no real idea what the illness was and how it would affect me. I thought it was something I would recover from in time or “get over” and then be able to move on with my life.
I left the clinic, came home and googled Fibromyalgia. And then I fell apart.
The doctor had suggested medication and counselling, both of which I turned down. I told him I did not want to be reliant on drugs for the rest of my life and as for the counselling, the only thing wrong with me was I felt a little emotional.
I felt overwhelmed by the amount of information available about my illness and all of it seemed bad.
Finally, I gave in and went back to the doctor. Some pain killers, an anti-depressant and a course of counselling later and I began to get my life back.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic illness but that does not mean that I have to be a victim.
Neither do you.
This book shares some of the things that have helped me. There is no guarantee that all or indeed any of these will help you but at the very least they will give you the tools to feel that you are in control of your own life again.
Never give up.
Do not be afraid to try things. Sometimes the smallest things can make a big difference.
Always remember; you have Fibromyalgia, you are not Fibromyalgia!
Gentle hugs

The Copper Pot

New Exclusive Short Story

(Based on The Girl in the Shadows series)

Grace’s much-loved Granny proved very popular in the series and people kept asking me to write her life story.

Now for the first time ever you can download a free short story – a snapshot – based on Granny Maura’s early life!

Written in the same style as The Girl in the Shadows, The Copper Pot will amuse you much like Grace’s escapades.

The Copper Pot tells the story of Maura’s father making and selling poitin (illegal whiskey) on their small farm in rural Ireland at the beginning of the 1900s.

Happy New Year!

Have you made any resolutions? Have you decided to turn over a new leaf? Or have you simply decided that 2017 is going to be your year?

I recently discovered these fantastic journals. If you are interested in goal setting or really pushing yourself to achieve your dreams, why not have a look at these.

It doesn’t matter what area of your life you want to improve – health, wealth, fitness or leisure – there is a journal for you.

They are not dated so you can start using them at any time!

These Journals are a little bit more expensive than I would normally pay but the benefits of goal setting on every area of my life more than pays for the difference.

I will make a few pennies from your purchase but I have to say they are fantastic and I love using them.

Blah Blah Blah

Been feeling a bit “Blah” lately – probably because of a reaction to the flu jab – so been finding it hard to concentrate.

Started plotting a new novel but it’s not coming together yet – I’ve never actually tried plotting one before – perhaps try again in a week or two.

Did some marketing but lack of funds kind of limits that! Still, did the usual social media whirl etc.

Started a Thunderclap for “A Little Book of Horror” – due for release October 12th

Pre-order Here or Support Thunderclap Here (it’s FREE)

Finally sent off an assignment for a course I’m doing.

Still feeling “Blah”.

Opened up new novel file – I’m twenty thousand words into a new historical romance – and a couple of hours and two thousand words later, I’m not feeling “Blah” any more!

The secret?

Just do it!

Stop procrastinating and just make an effort. It will come. Give it the right time and place and anything can be accomplished!

Must get back to the novel now!

Take Time to Smell the Roses

Well, I am currently working on a few different projects.

  • The Girl in the Shadows Part 3 – Editing
  • The Girl in the Shadows Part 4  – Writing
  • A Paranormal Romance Novel (1) – Writing (Almost ready for first edit)
  • A Paranormal Romance Novel (2) – Writing
  • Irish Paranormal Haunts Part 2 – Researching

So, lots of things to keep me busy.

I used to think I’d never finish the first book but now, I have so many things on the go and I know they will all get done in their own time.

Perhaps that’s the secret.

Let things happen as they will. Do not try to force them.

And always take time to smell the roses!
