From 8-14th June, Kindred Spirits: Ephemera was out on tour, organised by the fabulous Mary Anne Yarde and the Coffee Pot Book Club. It was great fun, preparing guest posts for the wonderful book-bloggers, and hearing what they think about the stories. Happily, the responses were good! And so I’m thrilled to share with you … More Kindred Spirits: Ephemera – Tour round-up!
Last Saturday, 4th May, I was thrilled to be taking part in the formal, ‘in real life’ launch of the wonderful anthology, Grant Me the Carving of My Name, in York Library. The setting was absolutely gorgeous, one of the nicest rooms I’ve ever read in, and it was brilliant to see it so full … More Book launch for Grant Me the Carving of My Name
Wow. Throughout April, I wrote almost 10,000 words about the world of Kindred Spirits! A whole 26 blog posts, each on a different aspect of this little fictional world of mine, and the ghosts which inhabit it. Did you read along each day, or dip in and out throughout the month? Either way, whether you … More Kindred Spirits A-Z: A rollercoaster month!

It’s a city full of history, even though I’ll admit that when I started researching for … More Kindred Spirits A-Z: York
I love Christmas. And, given that my poor ghosts have been stuck in the afterlife for centuries in some cases, I thought they would probably enjoy the bit of a break in the year that Christmas brings, with merriment and laughter, rather than quite so much angst… I decided then, that each book should feature … More Kindred Spirits A-Z: Xmas
Westminster Abbey was supposed to be the second book in the Kindred Spirits series, but instead, Kindred Spirits: Westminster Abbey became Book Three. The reason it was a book ‘late’ was due to pure cowardice on my part – there are a LOT of dead people in there! But once I got under its skin, … More Kindred Spirits A-Z: Westminster Abbey
Another topic from a Facebook shout-out today – U and V were the only ones I really struggled with! But my own mum came through, and suggested good old Vikings. Now, ok, I know ‘Viking’ is technically a descriptive term for what the Norse-men came and did to our poor country all those centuries ago, … More Kindred Spirits A-Z: Vikings
U is a difficult letter. So difficult that I opened up the question as to what I could write about on my Facebook page. One of the answers which came back was ‘unquiet’, and it struck me that if my characters were all of the ‘quiet’ variety of ghosts, it wouldn’t quite work so well … More Kindred Spirits A-Z: Unquiet
