Happy St David's Day

Happy St David's Day to everyone but specially to so many wonderful friends from Wales who have been part of my life for years.

 Way back when, childhood family holidays were spent in Trearddur Bay in Anglesey where my Irish aunt came across on the ferry to Holyhead to join us.

 Then I spent five years in Aberystwyth at the University of Wales. Most importantly, I met my husband there. And although we moved away to live in Lincolnshire, our connections with Wales have stayed strong. We have friends and writing connections with this beautiful country that have grown and developed over years of attending and teaching at  Writers Holidays. (I've just finished teaching at the latest Fishguard Weekend and can't wait to go back for the next one.) 

And today, appropriately, one of my first ever Fishguard students who has moved on to being a multi-published author, Rachael Thomas is celebrating the publication of her latest book today. (She also has a special spring giveaway so why not check out her Facebook page for a chance to win.)
So it's no wonder that Wales and the Welsh have a very special place in my heart.
Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus to you all.

Writing Courses

Did you decide that as your new year resolution, that this is the year you are determined to write your
romantic novel?

 Would you like some help with that - a weekend learning about writing, discussing writing, making friends - in a welcoming atmosphere with lots of laughter - and perhaps a little wine?

 I've just finalised my teaching timetable for 2019 and the weekend courses start in February - at Fishguard Bay Hotel. Friday 15th February – Sunday 17th February 2019
For the first time in a long time - well, since I set up this special Advance Romance Writing Course - I still have places on the February course so if you're interested, contact me - or Gerald Hobbs at   Writers'  Holiday.net  who organises the whole Writing Weekend for details. I'm so looking forward to seeing so many familiar faces - and I'd be happy to make new friends this year.
Other courses are coming up but I'll post the details of them later.   They will  be with Relax  and Write if you want to check out their web site.

Happy New Year

Happy new year to all my friends and readers, old and new. I hope that the coming year is as peaceful, happy and loving as you wish for. 

And I wish you success - in whatever form you most dream it to be - even if it's just getting through the days! I hope that 2019 brings you days that grow into happy memories shared with loved ones at the end of these 'new' days.

 But then I truly believe that every day is a 'new' one - and a chance to start again - so never give up - whatever you're aiming for.
Happy 2019 !
