Anne McAllister is blogging over at Love is an Exploding Cigar about the appeal of Men in Suits. I've got a real soft-spot for the tycoon hero and Anne's latest Harlequin Presents, The Boss's Wife for a Week, sounds like it will certainly feed my addiction to those oh-so-controlling, but wildly sexy, alpha males.

Psst ... if you look closely, you'll see a quote in there by yours truly ...

Switching genres

I write mainly contemporary, although I'm having a little sojourn into the world of the paranormal at the moment - it didn't start out that way, but something went bump in the night right in the middle of chapter two and things just went from there.

As a reader, and writer, I'll try anything ... except historical. For some reason it worries me, probably because I'm a bit daunted by all that research the author has to do and get right. I'm in awe of those people who write historical. So, it was with more than a little trepidation I approached the covers of Anna Campbell's Claiming the Courtesan following a friend's recommendation. All I can say is, Wow! It was fantastic. But what's even more amazing is that it's inspired me to have a go at an historical myself, or at least think about it.

Do you know that a cheese, handmade down on a farm in Somerset by one of a small group of artisan cheesemakers, actually has it's own website where you can watch it mature via webcam? "Wedginald" also has its own MySpace and Facebook pages ...

This Old House

Today sees the release of This Old House by Lavada Dee. I met Lavada through an online course almost two years' ago now and we've been friends ever since, encouraging each other through the ups and downs of getting published.

This Old House is a lovely story with great characters. You'll laugh and cry with Katherine and Ross as they battle their way towards their HEA.
