It’s okay little hamstahs, you are in the clear. This is your spesh new little friend hamsta….Bn2iQLyCAAEUB2r kate's hamster

wearing the romance jumper and all, sent specially from the lovely Kate Furnivall author of…

From Russia WIth Kate Furnivall. The March Author Interview

Given that Adrienne deWolfe, author of…

Pistols, petticoats and the big bad wolf woman...

was kinda shocked by all you naked hamstas the other day, maybe I should get you all the romance jerseys.  Or make Kate’s hamstah the big boss hamsta?  What do you say?run

Seriously, as well as thanking Kate, I want to say a huge thank you to Paul Ruddock. conv


Paul is a writer….he says he’s  an aspiring amateur, I am not going to debate that one with him, today….with a love of the outdoors.


He also writes book reviews…these vital things as authors we need and value. Something he generously gives of his time doing which is also why I’m not missing him out here.

Anyway, Paul and I follow one another’s blogs and he asked a few weeks ago about reading one of my books. I got to tell you now, I started quaking in my stilettos. untitled


He was straight upfront about the fact it was not his genre. AT ALL. So I was no help to him whatsoever in suggesting which one to read, largely cos I was thinking I am so gomna lose a follower here.

Anyway he went with His Judas Bride because it is set in an area we both love, while I went and hid, thinking I hope I never meet you there…

Yesterday he very kindly put his review up on his blog and on Amazon UK………

Despite being your typical neanderthal bloke images1

His words not mine!


Nuff said, except – imagesNX0HIJYFI thought you’d like this better than floo-ers!

So, where are we today, well, it’s quiz time. Yes. I did this quiz for a blog a few months back–the blog of my lovely doodling, we’re officially in the weird club,  buddy, author Elyzabeth M. Valey.convIt’s so high tech literary I though I’d share it here.  SO bring it on hammies…… Cue Cinnamon and Ginger…imagesFRKNF973
