new hair

Well it's not bright orange this time, but not the blonde I was hoping for. But it's covered most of my 4inches of grey which was the point and stripped most of the dark brown dye out. Now more or less its original colour. Can't say natural colour cos that's grey now.
It's not really dark brown at the base - I gave up with the hair dryer at that point, so its still wet in the picture.

a new book this way cometh

Remember this post? Here No? Then go read it. It has pics of Jason and Freddie from After the fire. Well.... I got offered a contract for it :) Jamie, my editor with WRP liked my changes and emailed this morning. I've filled in and sent back the pre-contract form.
Yay. I shall have to dig out my copy and refresh my memory before edits begin. It's about a girl named Freddie and a bloke called Jason. He left her 15yrs ago and is now her boss. It's also got bad guys, gun fights, heart stopping moments and death in it. But then, it's written by me so what do you expect? LOL. Its also got lots of romance and a happy ever after.
Right now my mind is full of the current WIP - about a deaf heroine, Adeline, and a cop named Nate. Based on the child, hat, lightning storm prompt from WRP this one, called all of me, has taken over my life completely. I'm dreaming it.
Yes... it has a title and is only a WIP. Unheard of for me. What's more...it has a plot. Although i now run …

Today we have Dora Hiers talking about her new white rose publishing release Journey's End.

JOURNEY’S END Blurb:Devastated after the brutal murder of her husband, Chelsea Hammond vows never to love another lawman. Intent on rebuilding her shattered life, she turns her focus to helping troubled teens. But when an angry father bent on retaliation, threatens her, Chelsea must turn to the one man she never thought to trust: Deputy U.S. Marshal Trey Colten.

Trey wants only to protect Chelsea, but she blames him for her husband’s death. Trey can relate. He blames himself, also. As danger lurks, Trey begs Chelsea to heed his warnings. He let down one Hammond. He won’t let down another—especially one who now holds his heart.

When Chelsea is snatched from her home, can she put aside her fear, and trust Trey with her life? Can she forgive him for destroying her past and let him help to rebuild her future?

Where one journey ends, another begins…JOURNEY’S END Excerpt:“I suppose I should have been…

This morning while I was lying in bed in the early pre-dawn I heard a bird singing out a beautiful melody. Normally, this would make my heart happy, but then I'd just turn over and try to catch a few more moments of rest. But not today. Today was extra special. Why? Because crazy as this may sound, this little birdie was lifting it's sweet praises in the midst of a thunderstorm. Amazing! God used two rather "ordinary" things to create and extraordinary experience for me—God showed me something awesome and real—a perfect picture of peace. Thunderclouds rolled in, lighting flashed across the dark gray sky, and rain teamed down the windowpane yet this bird was secure. In fact, it was more than secure, it was full of joy, willing and wanting to sing. This sends Goosebumps up my spine as I think about it. It's a paradox and truly a God thing. Especially since this word, paradox, has been near and dear to my heart. In fact, I kid you not; this is the very title of the …

Did you know...

They say to write what you know, so all - well most of what I write is set in my fictional town of Headley Cross. But did you know that Headley Cross is actually my home town of Woodley?
Victoria Park is Woodford Park - with the gates stolen from Palmer Park lol
Headley Baptist is Carey Baptist - where I go (not in Woodley but I moved it) And before i get in trouble here can i just point out that Pastor Jack and Pastor Richard bear absolutely NO resemblance to either Pastor James or Pastor David. Honest...
And as to why its called Headley Cross? It's named after Headley Court the rehabilitation hospital for injured service men and women.
