I hope you will join me next weekend on Facebook. It’s a one day promo for my latest Chatty Cat book! http://bit.ly/1FtO8u9
Suzan Collins, Pam Finch, Helen Thwaites, Enid Thwaites, Helen Meneghello, Carole Gomez-Cornejo and Jo Wilde met in November at a Just Write It! writing workshop. All seven of the authors have agreed to publish their works in time for the Author Fair/Pop up bookshop at The Coconut Loft, in Lowestoft, this July. Their works include novels, autobiographies and memoirs.
Amazon 5* review of the new book-Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer
Can almost hear Chatty Cat telling her story
The next instalment of a lady who adopts a stray cat and how they spend their days together. Again just like the first book written by Suzan this book is filled with everything you should know before taking on a kitten or a fully grown cat. So much information from Suzan and also from Chatty Cat’s point of view. A must read for all ages whether you have a kitten/cat or are thinking of owning one or rather them owning you! Sit back and enjoy the story and the sketches and photographs , you will be thrilled.
It is called Chatty Cat: Spring into Summer.
The second in the Chatty Cat series follows Chatty through spring and summer in her new home as she gradually learns to relax and enjoy her surroundings. “The sun has warmed up the ground and now the sun is shining on my tummy and making it nice and warm. It’s all quiet in the garden and I fall asleep. I am dreaming…” Life still holds a few surprises for Chatty, with new friends and new experiences. Chatty Cat is a real rescue cat in a real home and her adventures provide a useful guide to caring for your pet. It’s not just a manual – but it will help you look after your cat. It’s not just a story – but you can read it like one. It’s not just a children’s book – but children of all ages will love it, and so will adults. The author has a real knack for getting into Chatty Cat’s head and explaining her behaviour in ways that everyone can recognise.
Available in Paperback and ebook

‘For sexy thirty something Widow Nikki, a freelance reporter, life is pretty much on track. She has some good friends, a great job, and no money worries. So what if her heart is a little bruised. When an assignment to cover a children’s charity do in London comes up she leaps at the chance to rub shoulders with a few celebrities.
Here she meets Simon, a star from TV soap. Its lust at first sight and Nikki quickly wrangles a job with the charity, hoping to catch his eye. Her new commute quickly becomes enlivened by a series of entangled affairs ‘of the heart’. There’s Richard, a member of station staff, whose ‘slow and subtle attention’ entices Nikki into foreign adventures but it seems he’s a long way from all he appears.
There’s the gorgeous Luca, her new colleague, with his smouldering Italian good looks who is well on the way to derailing all her good intentions. And finally there’s Simon, who seems to be emerging as a narcissistic man, far more in love with himself than with any of women that have fallen for his undoubted charms.
With an assortment of warm friends, complete with ready shoulders, wicked humour and endless advice, Nikki’s travels on the rails are an adventure dotted with sex, celebrity and some hard choices. Will she find happiness in the end, will her heart be mended and her life, at last, complete?’
Watch out for the follow-up to this book, ‘Back on The Rails’.
Genre: Fiction=romance, chick lit, adventure, travel.
Available in paperback and Kindle
