On the RNA Blog Today...the Paranormal/Speculative Fiction Rona Awards



This year’s shortlisted novels include space adventures, timeslip, and a ghost story, and include two independently published novels. ...

For the first time ever there is a paranormal category. 
The other three finalists   in this category are Christine Courtenay, Kate Johnson and Jan Jones and I am so thrilled to be included with such wonderful, talented authors, with the latest in the Destiny Trilogy - Beloved Enemy!  

There are five other categories: Contemporary, Epic, Historical, Romantic Comedy and Young Adult, plus the RoNA Rose for shorter fiction. So many wonderful books in the running. The awards will be announced at the RNA  Awards Ceremony on the 13th March  by guest presenter Prue Leith. Although I'm not really expecting to get any further with such great authors in the running, wish me and Kerry and Cat luck!

Here is a brief excerpt from Beloved Enemy

He pulled her back toward him and looked deep into her eyes.Something she saw in those blue depths struck her heart. The pain that never left them went so deep. This man bore scars far worse than the physical one running faintly below his left eye…worse even than the mental scars she harboured herself.

Almost without thinking, she put her hands on each side of his face and pressed her lips to his in a brief kiss, then drew back. For a moment he hesitated, before pulling her close again, so close she gasped. He brushed his thumb along her lips, until she parted them in surrender. A shockwave like electricity ran through her, sending her senses reeling in the ecstasy of the moment. She’d sworn never to let a man betray her again. Every man she’d ever known, even her own father, had let her down, lied to her, and deceived her. Yet at this moment,with this man, every nerve in her body ached with sweet desire.

MARCH 1st - ST DAVID'S DAY


Today is St David's Day, the national Saint's Day for Wales. 

People in Wales will be wearing a dafodil or leek and all sorts of celebrations will be taking place, from concerts called Eisteddfords to lunches with a special soup of lamb, leeks and potato, served with bread and cheese and known  as cawl and  in many schools the children will dress up in national costume.





The leek is the symbol of St David but many people, including myself, prefer to wear our national flower, the daffodil, and thanks to our mild winter, I'm happy to say the daffodils in my garden have flowered well in time for the special day, this year!

Happy St David's Day everyone.
