The great thing about the fact that the Babe Magnet and I write different sorts of books is that the research/meetings/publicity for those books take us to very different places. So he was in London with me and then this week he had to visit parts of the Norfolk coast for his upcoming book on villages that have been 'Lost To The Sea'. It's great how sometimes research can be done unexpectedly - as in one fascinating long conversation with a crab fisherman over coffee in Sheringham. 

 We also found time to visit the wonderful animal sanctuary at Hillside near Cromer where I lost my heart to one of the tallest horses I have ever seen - Bluebell is a black shire horse mare who stands 18.2 hands high - that's about 74 inches - and with her long neck and head on top that's a lot of horse! She was just gorgeous.

It was wonderful to be able to help the sanctuary with something as simple as a donation of a bale (or 3 ) of hay - and a bag full of carrots for suppertime treats. Now if only I'd known they could also use our windfall apples - we could have loaded up the car before we went.

PS The Goodreads giveaway for Indebted to Moreno  is now closed and books are going out to the winners on Monday - but  official publication day is next week - and this is a rather special book for me - so watch this space for a chance to win one of my backlist books.
