I am a wife, mother of two boys, degree student, avid reader and writer of words. I sometimes sleep, always have eye bags and dream of retiring to a big white house in Cornwall, with 2 shaggy dogs, drinking wine on my seafront balcony whilst creating works of romantic fiction. All done with immaculate make up and floaty dresses.

In the meantime I nearly always remember to brush my hair, seldom have time to look in a mirror and write many, many to-do lists.

Helen Mccabe Thanks, Rachel, for being my friend and for recommending various books. I hope you will try one or two of mine that are in print! Perhaps the Piper Trilogy including Piper (pub by Telos) and The Piercing, which is the 2nd book of the Trilogy or if you don't like horror/thrillers then The Price of Beautyor Chance Encounters (pub by Endeavour Press. All can be downloaded from the usual sources.
All the best,
Helen


Rachel no problem! Wish I had more hours in the day to read...


Savannah Rachel, thank you for the friendship..
