Suzy (1985-1998)

Black and white Sunday Selfies of my beloved angel cat Suzy.

On the 29th of June 1998 she crossed he bridge but I’ll never forget her. This beautiful girl was with me for 13 years and was my everything. Always there to help me through many heartaches and from her I received the most beautiful unconditional love. And of course she had all the love she could ever need from me and my family. But it was me who took the most care of her and I know she looked upon me as her mother.  She was my first fur-daughter.

I miss you, Sweetie xxxxx

Caturday Art: Athena Watercolour

Athena in watercolour

I created this cat art in Photoshop Elements 13 using the watercolour filter. I felt that it looked a bit pale so I went to BeFunky and used Beautify to, well, beautify it! I love how it accentuates her lovely green eyes.

I am currently running a FREE promotion on Amazon for two of my novels.

Free on Kindle!

Athena says, “great read!”

The first is Book 1 of my historical vampire fantasy FROZEN IN TIME

“A novel of ancient legends, vampires and the imagination”

Set in Ancient Greece, a time when the spirit world of gods and goddesses and other immortal beings bleeds into the world of mortals, Frozen in Time is a rich vampire tale of betrayal and revenge and the eternal longing for blood and love.

After the death of his wife in childbirth, Philip, grief-stricken and suicidal, joins the army of his half-brother Alexander, with whom he has a very uneasy relationship. But the world of immortals has other plans for him and the vampiric monster Scylla plays on his grief by seducing him in the form of his dead wife.

Horrified when he discovers that he too is now an immortal blood drinker, it becomes his life’s quest to escape Scylla, find a way of destroying her forever and to hopefully reunite himself with his dead wife’s soul in a one way or another.

The second is a free sample copy of the first 3 chapters of my novel about fame and fortune AGE OF DREAMS.

Highly-sensitive teen Nicola James is depressed. Growing up with a gambling addicted, alcoholic dad and having endured constant bullying at school does that to people. And now her parents are divorced, and she, her mum and younger brother have moved to a new home. If that wasn’t enough, Nicola has just left the hell that was school and walked straight into the most miserable job ever.

But Nicola has dreams. Big dreams. She wants to be a singer. A pop star. Only then will she truly be happy.

Enter Joe, her new neighbour. He plays in a band. Nicola is amazed at how quickly everything falls into place. She now has a boyfriend and sings in a band. And her dream has come true.

However, fame only leads to more emotional trauma and Nicola, now on the road to self-destruction. finds herself tortured by the same inner demons as her father.
Who will catch Nicola when she falls?

Set against the backdrop of the 1980s music scene, Age of Dreams is a gripping story of fame, addiction and love.
