And I thought battling the MOD took time...

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you know that I popped into the Unbound office yesterday, as part of a flying visit up to my ole home town, lovely London - I brought a few old photos to be scanned in case we can include a few in the book. Good for a laugh if nowt else - I'd love to be that slim and fresh-faced again! Great to properly meet Xander and catch up with Georgia and Mathew too - talked…

I wish I could offer a prize, but all I can do is to apologise for the typos in my most recent update - more haste, less speed might be the maxim for me. Is it a maxim? That'll be the next error...anyways, I HATE typos - I recently 'designed' some A5 flyers on the Vistaprint site and once 5000 lovely glossy items arrived, yes, that's right - not only a bloody typo, but a factual inaccuracy date-wise…

Season’s Greetings!

This is somewhat overdue, so as usual, an apology is in order - I have been very busy in my non-writing life though, some of you will know the saga of Dad’s stroke and the fact that I’m living in a house that was bought after we sold our family home in Harrow to relocate to the Isle of Wight.

Alas, this house now has to be sold to keep paying his Nursing Home fees, so I’ve been rather preoccupied…

A giant step closer!

Wow! The decision to convert to paperback is reaping its rewards- TQA is now fully funded! Thank you SO much for believing in this project, your support means the world to me and I’m just beyond grateful to you for playing your part in helping me realise this dream. 

It’s a wee bit scary too, because I’m frantically trying to tidy and tweak the final draft before sending it to Xander, the paperback…

The more we change, the more we stay the same...or do we?

Before I get to the point of this important update, I want to reiterate how incredibly thankful I am to all of you - knowing you are interested in reading my crazy story is genuinely humbling, terrifying and fabulous in equal measure!



Many of you will know I’ve been trying very hard to find those elusive potential ‘Patron’ pledges that would take a gert big bite out of my percentage total - well…

Blimey! I was on ‘yap’ mode for this one! Only watch if you want to be sent to sleep! Sorry folks!

Less an update...

...more of an enquiry...

So, many of my fellow Unbound authors offer 'extras' to encourage pledges or 'upgrades'...when I attended the crowdfunding workshop, I half jokingly commented that all I could do would be to offer tuition in how to make the perfect salute, or maybe teach some bandaging or aseptic dressing techniques!

So, my question is this - what might encourage you to upgrade your…

A challenge!

When I started out with this crowdfunding malarkey, I knew it would be a tough call to raise enough money to get this book published. But it didn't matter. The excitement and elation of having found a publisher who thought the story worthy of telling, well, that was simply incredible. 

And now I've had more than 300 people who have also thought Unbound's belief in my story isn't misplaced. That…

My mojo's back!

Monday, 17 July 2017

After a bit of a summertime wilt, post French holiday, I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. Saturday saw the inaugural Isle of Wight Pride Festival sell out its 5000 tickets, it was very inspiring indeed. I got to march with Peter Tatchell, who put out a very complimentary tweet about me, so I can but hope that may engender some more pledges. This week I've been asked to step in for…
