Somebody find me an unpaid publicist!!!

Well, my book is selling quite well already. I don't know exactly how many. But it looks as if it's doing well in various charts.

My family and friends are doing a sterling job all over the world. What I need is loadsa money to pay for someone to take over! It is fun and very exciting doing it myself though. It just takes up so much time! I am a writer and need to write.

Still, one day...

My Children's book is out!!! Yabba Dabba Dooo...

Happy Days!!!

Just when you don't expect it, my book popped up on Amazon yesterday, while my husband was doing a quick search, after it not appearing in the usual list.

It's everywhere now. All over the world. It's hard to take in and a great feeling.

The cover by my daughter Emma Hogan (BA-Animation) looks absolutely terrific. Thank you sweetheartxxx

Thank you so much Ted and all at Legend for all your hard work.

And a big thank you to my husband, Bill for his contribution, my sister, Tricia Tvrdik in Chicago for hours of editing on two of my books and my 'English teacher'/friend for edificating me and giving up a great deal of her own writing time. I know you wish to remain anonymous!

Big thanks as well to the numerous writers/members of for all your reviews and help since. It really helped transform it into a proper book.

It's been a long time!

Due to ill health and other things, I have not been blogging. I am still not 100%, but finding my way back into the land of the living. I have updated my fellow YWO writers books on my website and will add the others as they appear.

I am still to waiting for my baby, Keeper of the Enchanted Pool, to appear. It should be any day now, according to my publisher.

I can't wait for children to read it and be transported back to a time when children were much more innocent than today. There is a Nanny and teddies for my 14 year old, Lottie. Yet though innocent, she is strong and sensible. Lottie needs these qualities after her parents are missing, believed drowned, when the Titanic sinks. Strange things happen, nothing is as it appears and she finds her way to a mysterious new land, where she has an exciting and sometimes dangerous mission.
