This has been such a long winter. Although the temperature is gradually creeping up the scale, it was trying to snow this morning. Spring feels a long way away. I’ve been listening to the dawn chorus each morning, but so far there’s no sign of either the cuckoo or woodcock, which are the real signs of spring here in Gloucestershire. We all need some cheering up, so here’s something lovely produced by mickp2127. I especially love the guest appearances by the bird we’re all waiting to hear. Cue Delius...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I hope you have had a lovely break over the holiday season and you’re looking forward to 2013. Here’s a picture of the Wye as it’s been running through our village. What a wintry scene!
May the coming months bring you everything you wish for, with plenty of time for reading, friendship and all the good things in life - like chocolate, maybe?

I’m really excited about my latest project. I’m bringing out one of my Harlequin Masquerade historical novels, Lady Rascal, as an ebook.

I hope you’re all enjoying the Olympics coverage - wasn’t the opening ceremony fantastic? I thought the Queen was a good sport for taking part in the spoof James Bond clip. Fancy keeping Daniel Craig waiting while she finished writing her to do list - Feed corgis, check parachute, put key under mat, open Olympic Games…
I’ll have some really exciting book news coming up in the next few months. It’s all under wraps at the moment, but I can’t wait to tell you about it. If you’d like to be in on the secret as soon as it’s released, sign up for my next newsletter here!

We’ve had some very odd weather here in England this year. For the first few months of 2012, it was so dry there were hosepipe bans and dire warnings of drought. My poor bees found it hard to find either food or water. I had to feed them sugar syrup, and keep the ponds topped up so they could sip from the edges. Then it began to rain as though it would never stop! Here in Gloucestershire, we had one month’s worth of rain in a single day a few weeks ago. Yesterday, it was the turn of poor North Wales to be overwhelmed. Whether the weather where you are is warm and sunny or cold and miserable, it’s good to know you’re never at a loss when you’ve got a good book to hand.
I had three more Falco books by Lindsey Davis for my birthday last month - I’m slowly working my way through the whole series. Reading those books really makes me want to take up my abandoned Classics course again!
July 2012 sees the release of my latest book for Harlequin Mills and Boon. The Count’s Prize is the story of archaeologist Josie’s transformation from quiet academic to a woman who really shows dashing Count Dario what he’s missing…
