Time to move on...

Ahh, I've had this lovely blog for over six years years, but now it's time to move to new adventures. Not just physically – as we have done, from Scotland to France – but also digitally. I've had a makeover! ;-)

I wish to thank all my lovely followers, who've commented to and shared the posts over the years – and especially all those lovely writers who have visited and who brought with them so much knowledge, humour, romance, suspense, and literary delights. It has been a pleasure hosting you on my little blog.

I have tried to incorporate the content into my new website, but it being WP-based, it didn't work properly. I'm gutted. Therefore, I'm leaving this site 'live' for readers to be able to find the many fascinating posts in online searches. It would be a waste to hide them!

As for me, I would be delighted if you would follow me to my new website at, either to my new blog or my newsletters. I'm planning to host auth…

Welcome to author Kathy Sharp!

Today, I'm delighted to welcome author Kathy Sharp. Her novel, All the Wild Weather, the third instalment in her fabulous 'Larus' trilogy, is released today. Many congratulations, Kathy!

I'm handing over to Kathy to tell us more about that elusive island of Larus and its quirky inhabitants. Make sure to check out the trilogy on Amazon and other outlets. 

Over to Kathy!
Hello, Cathie, and thank you for the opportunity to talk to your readers.
A couple of summers ago I made a visit to Portsmouth. I had reached an impasse with the book I was working on, All the Wild Weather. It’s a seagoing sort of story, and I hoped a couple of days immersing myself in all things maritime might kick off the creative process once more.
So off I went, and had a wonderful time in Portsmouth, clambering about HMS Victory with my mouth open in awe, trying not to confuse my trenails with my trunnions. Even in dry dock with her rigging taken down for repair, the old ship was a remarkable link wi…

The heat is on...

Picture a Highland rogue plotting rebellion, a Lowland lass with a curious nature that gets her into trouble all the time – and the undeniable beauty of the Scottish Highlands around Glencoe, Ballachulish and the shores of mysterious Loch Ness! Add a murder, a missing load of muskets, and a scheming brother...

Betrayed by her brother’s lies, Catriona MacKenzie is banished from her home to her godmother’s manor in the remote Scottish Highlands. While her family ponders her fate, Catriona’s insatiable curiosity leads her…

Chilling new release by bestselling author Shani Struthers

It's time again to draw the curtains and hide behind the sofa: bestselling author of paranormal mystery fiction, Shani Struthers, has a new title out: 44 Gilmore Street! Sounds like a scary place to me...

I'm therefore delighted to welcome Shani back here to celebrate. And she's sharing a sneaky teaser of 44 Gilmore Street. Wishing you much success with your new title, Shani! :-)

Now, folks, prepare for the thrill!

Blurb – 44 Gilmore Street
“We all have to face our demons at some point.”

Psychic Surveys – specialists in domestic spiritual clearance – have never been busier. Although exhausted, Ruby is pleased. Her track record as well as her down-to-earth, no-nonsense approach inspires faith in the haunted, who willingly call on her high street consultancy when the supernatural takes hold.
But that’s all about to change.
Two cases prove trying: 44 Gilmore Street, home to a particularly violent spirit, and the reincarnation case of Elisha Grey. When Gilmore Street attracts press…
