    Posted on

    I have some yummy Spring offers and freebies for you...

    For a few days, the first of Milly’s Magical Midlife series is free - and the follow-ups are 99 pennies on Amazon.co.uk and .com.
    Follow Milly’s adventures when she escapes a humdrum marriage and inherits a posh London pad, a ghost, and a sassy talking cat. Oh, and falls for the ghost’s hunky son...

    What else? Oh, yes, I just published the third book in my Touch of Magic series, 

    Bullied into an arranged marriage in 1987, sad Sarah Sapp now mourns her lost love. Her escapes from misery are champagne, prescription drugs and her German Shepherd dog.

    When her desperation reaches a crescendo, she sets fire to her husband's best suit. And wakes in a private mental-health clinic, sectioned and with no escape route.

    ‘I need a fairy godmother,’ she says. And, hey presto, Muriel Sparkle appears and sends Sarah back to 1987 for a do-over.

    Will Sarah stand up to her grandfather and marry the man she loves? Or will she succumb to his blackmail again and destroy her last hope of happiness?

    Will Barbara's curiosity literally save the day or will it get her into deep trouble - possibly costing her her job?

    Time-Travel Baby   New Release

    Secret Snippet: The baby on the front cover is me. I spent ages searching image websites for a vintage baby photo, then thought, 'Hang on a moment, I have the very thing.' I was born in 1958, so the timing is perfect - yes, I'm that old! I look shocked because Mum woke me from a deep sleep after the photographer arrived. Nothing changes - I'm still always shocked to wake up!

Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

  3. A Happy Thanksgiving Ebook Gift for You - Women's Paranormal Witty Fiction...

    Posted on

    Greetings from Bonnie Scotland, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you...

    Despite living in the UK, I always get caught up in the excitement. I have something special for you - whatever you’re celebrating today - book one in my latest series, Milly’s Magical Midlife, is FREE for a few days.

    But be careful - this cute Siamese cat has her eye on your turkey.

    Here’s the blurb for Baking and Entering...

    A sassy-mouthed cat. A vengeful ghost. Can a recent divorcee solve a magical mystery before she joins the deceased?

    Forty-year-old Milly Miller's life is dull. Her marriage is passion-free, and her shoeshop job is 'sole' destroying. When she and her husband separate, Milly longs for excitement and glamour. But on her paltry wages, her life is more orthopaedic sandals than designer heels.

    On divorce day, she inherits a fortune and a posh London pad. Her luck has changed, and Milly hotfoots it to the capital.

    She couldn't be happier in her new home with its fun and zany neighbours. Until she discovers a resident ghost who claims someone murdered her. And that she's a witch. Suspected weapon? Baked goods laced with magical vanilla essence.

    The ghost asks Milly to investigate with the help 200-year-old Siamese cat with a sassy tongue.

    A prime suspect is the ghost's hunky son, who Milly falls for. But in a twist of fate, if the son is innocent, Milly must return her fortune. And if he's guilty, she'll lose out on love.

    If you enjoy zany comedies with plenty of magical mystery and a dash of romance, you'll love Baking and Entering...

    And here are the links to the next two books in this zany series...



    Having spent lots of time writing over the last few years I’m trying to catch up on that little thing called life.

    However, I’m slowly writing book six of Scarlett King’s Time-Travel Adventures. It’s a tricky situation for Scarlett who must visit 1959 to give birth to her longed-for baby. Why? Watch this space.
