The Doll's House & Other News

option 8
The first draft of The Doll's House is now at the publishers, and it has received a major thumbs up from my agent - so yippee!
Delighted also to be invited to attend a number of the 2013 Literary Festivals - I'll post all the relevant dates shortly!
EMU INK, a new online magazine will have their first issue out later this month, and the lead feature will cover RED RIBBONS, THE DOLL'S HOUSE, and other aspects of writing, so thanks to Emer Cleary, an amazing editor.
But finally, one of the best parts of all this is Reader Feedback, so thanks for all your support over Twitter, the website & blog, facebook etc, and thanks Katie Brady for the latest Amazon 5 Star Review below!!!
