The good news is Holding Pattern, my new Irish airline novel, is out now in ebooks and paperback. It can be got from Amazon and my first review has been posted by Tulip on Amazon.com.

This reviewer notes that it is set in the 70's and early eighties and the novel starts with the crash of a passenger jet in the jungle of Ceylon. Air hostess Kay believes her lover married pilot Graham dead and marries a friend.  However, he is held hostage by a local mercenary group and returns to Irel...

Yesterday was the big day, the day my airline novel Holding Pattern went online. It was for sale on Amazon as well as many other outlets. Not everyone has gone digital and emails are coming in with the vital question. 'When will it be available in paperback?' 

Just finished reading the proofs so should know soon.  Rough estimate 2/3 weeks   Will be sure and let you know.

 I didn't realise when my novel was being converted to digital that I wasn't allowed to include the link to my Amazon page.  No, really. It seems other distributing outlets don't like it, consider it a downright unfair disadvantage.  Not to me, of course, but well, I can see their point now.  So won't do it anymore. Promise!
Not when it's stopping my book from going online for another whole fortnight.   

The paperbacks will be a little later but I expected th...

So it's the fourth day of the free download of Up Up and Away. Few know this book started off with the working title of Standby For Take-off. Tomorrow will be the last day to get it for free on Amazon. A humorous, sometimes wry look from the inside of Celtic Airways, a thriving Irish airline. Romantic too depending how you feel about an air hostess madly in love with a four gold striper, married pilot. Don't miss it. Sequel coming online soon.

So here goes. Kicking off Amazon promotion on my first airline novel Up Up and Away on Thursday 25th May with five days of freebies. Set in the 1960's it will give you an idea of what it was to work for an Irish airline in those years.  Quote from fellow air hostess on reading it. 'I don't remember it being so much fun back then'  In retrospect we did have a lot of fun. Read
for free and tell me if you agree.  Maybe write a review. Enjoy!

When I saw a documentary made by the BBC I was filled with admiration for Maya Angelou and immediately wanted to read more about this remarkable Black woman. I started with her autobiography 'I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings' As it happened, I had the book already on my shelves having picked it up in Oxfam, along with two others, some years ago. What a treat was in store. 
From the start her resilience impressed me, her originality, her style and most of all her big heart and her determina...
