To all my lovely friends and readers,

I hope you are all ready for Christmas and are looking forward to some jolly festivities and a relaxing break (although I know the latter is sometimes quite difficult to achieve!)

I’m sorry I have been remiss on my posts recently. My excuse it that 2023 was a busy year for us one way and another. A mixture of lovely highs, sad lows, and a surprising number of mildly irritating and time-consuming things to deal with in the middle! Normal life, I suppose!

Nevertheless, it has been a fruitful year for me on the writing front, with one new book finished, and another well on the way. In fact, I completed Chapter Eleven of my current project only yesterday. I wanted to get half way through in time for Christmas, and I just made it!

I’m hoping that both these books will come out this year, more news about that soon … plus you can sign up for further details at

In the meantime, I would like to wish you a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

With all best wishes, Helen, Marc and Hera (the dog!)
