Thank you so much for inviting me to your blog.
I’d thought I’d chat about writing what you don’t know. Yes, you read that right. The stuff I know is pretty dull – well, to sustain my interest through a 90,000 word book, it is. I’d rather write what I don’t know. Every book for me is a learning experience, a step into the unknown, new and exciting. Hopefully that sense of excitement is transferred to my readers.
I’m also a real stickler for making sure I do things properly, so lots of research into my subjects, site visits, and talking to experts. I hate it when an inaccuracy pulls me out of a story so I try really hard to get things right.
I learned a lot, much, much more than you’ll see in the book but I know I’ve done my best to get the details right so hopefully when you read Renovation, Renovation, Renovation that sense of excitement and adventure will be there waiting.

Trapped by the credit crunch on yet another renovation project with her now very ex boyfriend, Steve, will she ever find the forever love she’s after or will it just be more renovation, renovation, renovation?
