Still Working Away

Edits. And more edits. And then some more edits. It's the only way a manuscript gets better. Yep, still plugging away at the manuscript that was due forever ago. Thank God I have a patient editor.

Meanwhile, whenever I have a spare second, I'm reading Little Black Dress, by the lovely Susan McBride. I can hardly put it down!

Two sisters whose lives seemed forever intertwined are torn apart when a magical little black dress gives each one a glimpse of an unavoidable future.

Antonia Ashton has worked hard to build a thriving career and a committed relationship, but she realizes her life has gone off track. Forced to return home to Blue Hills when her mother, Evie, suffers a massive stroke, Toni finds the old Victorian where she grew up as crammed full of secrets as it is with clutter. Now she must put her mother’s house in order—and uncover long-buried truths about Evie and her aunt, Anna, who vanished fifty years earlier on the eve of her wedding. By shedding light on the past, Toni illuminates her own mistakes and learns the most unexpected things about love, magic, and a little black dress with the power to break hearts… and mend them.
