I will definitely be writing more in the Witch series, but I'm afraid I'm not a fast writer, so it may be a little while. In fact I have to finish the fourth book in the Strange series first. But your lovely message might just be the wake-up call I need.

FIFTY SHADES OF PALLID!

There’s a huge amount of pleasure in writing a novel. Particularly whilst it’s just you, your characters and the computer. The tricky bit and I’m sure I’m not the first to suss this, is when it comes to showing it to a third party.

Another great read!
