Birthdays & Books
Reading a new novel is like celebrating your birthday.
There’s excitement; anticipation and the longing to investigate what’s inside!
Picking up a new book, with all the treasures it holds, is a terrific experience.  
Seeing a new cover for the first time, is like holding an unwrapped present. You can’t help but wonder what it contains and look forward to diving in.
Reading is such a treasured gift and gives so much back in return.
Happy Birthday Librarian Lavender! 
Blurb - "Rock My World"

Ruby Cameron is an ambitious reporter for a local paper where she is fed scraps of news, and lives with a man whose “idea of living dangerously is to leave the heating on when we pop out to the shops”. But after catching her squeaky clean boyfriend in flagrante delicto she ups sticks and moves into her own small home, only to discover the ghostly presence of a cheeky rock star who becomes her confidant as the dynamics of her small town, and her feelings about her dashing new boss, begin to throw up more questions than she can answer. Will Ruby discover who she really is, and perhaps more importantly, who she wants to be? 

Author Bio

I trained as a journalist but writing romance has always been a dream of mine. When I’ve not got my head in a book or drafting one, I write verses and captions for greetings card companies. Writing at home seems to be incredibly difficult for me – I usually require coffee, music and noise.
“Rock My World”  is my first rom-com. My second novel, also a rom-com, is due to be released soon. I’m married, have two sons and live in Scotland.



  1. Another lovely post. X

  2. No good I'm stopping reading book reviews. I want so many. No I would never stop. Just hope one day when I get around to writing someone will like my book.
