Back to work after a short break

How time flies when you’re having fun! A whole month of my life has vanished in a blur. My Australian family are safely back home after what seemed like a whirlwind visit, though they were here for four whole weeks.

We visited castles and stately homes, historical cities and nature’s natural wonders, but the place that will live on in the memories of all my grandchildren is Sherwood Forest, where they all did the treetop adventure, ‘Go Ape’. They skipped along the terrifyingly high walkways, clinging precariously to flimsy wooden structures, while we older ones watched in awe from the ground with cricked necks.

We tried to put a little culture in the mix by dragging them around the places of historical interest, but children just love having fun. Consequently the local trampoline park, crazy dino golf and playing with their English cousins were voted as the best days. However, they managed to find fun even in the most cultural spots we took them to. Harry Potter broomstick riding lessons at Alnwick Castle and fishing in the river at Bolton Abbey were big highlights for them.

All good things come to an end, and it was painful to say goodbye. Having all my family together was very special, and I will treasure the happy memories we made until the next time, whenever that might be.

Now I’m back at my computer, sketching the outline for the next novel and working on the marketing for my latest release. With that in mind, here’s a reminder that there are only five more days left to enter the Goodreads Giveaway for Hannah’s Conflict. Good luck if you decide to enter.

After escaping Europe before the outbreak of WW2, Hannah’s passionate response to the oppression of her fellow Jews leads her back to Germany.

Working with a group of partisans, she helps to rescue Jewish prisoners from their places of hiding, from labour camps and from certain death.

Living with danger, and in constant fear of discovery, she learns her lover is not what he seems. With no-one to confide in, she lives with the oppressive menace of his secrets and lies. If the truth gets out, it could threaten the safety of the whole operation.
