I’m going to continue my Q&A in my next post, because I’ve been struck with a meme recently… You must know it, it’s the ‘25 things you never knew about me’ one, and it occurred to me that I could use this to tell you a bit more about Hubble Bubble. So I’m going to, [...]
This fabulous novel which we’ve all been waiting to release, has magically been selected as one of the Best Books of the Month by those amazing people at the UK Apple iBookstore! HURRAH!
Just take a look at this cool screen shot of the iBookstore Features page. Okay, the banner rotates but can you see our [...]
What do weddings mean to most of us?
That’s in addition to the ceremony, the public affirmation of love and devotion, the joining of two people and hopefully two families forever?

It’s finally here – publication day for The Gilded Fan – and I’m afraid that against Sarah’s advice (well, it was good advice even though you couldn’t possibly follow it for a debut novel), I’m not going to be professional, I’m going to start this post with a ‘squeeeeeeeeeeeee!’
Winning the 2012 Joan Hessayon Award for New Writers was a magical moment for Choc Lit author Evonne Wareham, but it was just one in many special moments since the release of her romantic suspense debut novel, Never Coming Home.
March 2013 sees the eagerly-awaited release of her next novel, Out of Sight Out of Mind, a paranormal [...]
If I was clever, I'd have added fire-spouting rocket boosters under this.
No such thing as Immortality is officially launched today. You will be very pleased to hear, that I am not going to attempt to describe what I am currently feeling. There isn’t a chance I could do it [...]
It’s pretty wild in our house at the moment. Not unusual ― but with two boys who both still believe in Father Christmas, things are getting wilder by the millisecond.
