Out and About: I’m a guest on JP Barnaby’s Blog

I had a chance to visit JP Barnaby’s blog (thanks for having me, JP) and used it as an opportunity to speak about something that’s on my mind at the moment.

I’m nearing the release of my first novel length book, something that nearly didn’t happen. For a while I wasn’t sure I was going to keep to writing. It was the usual case of self-doubt and crisis of confidence. But thanks to encouragement and ongoing support of a number of people, I kept doing what I love.

So as I prepare for the release of Charlie’s Hero, I keep remembering all the people who have helped me along the way – thinking of them with gratitude. Friends, fellow authors, everyone at my publisher, my FB family, and readers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤

And now I can’t believe it – a paperback! I’m so glad I continued on this journey.

For those of you interested, here are the details of my latest release. Charlie’s Hero will be available from Dreamspinner Press on 17th June but is available for pre-order now.


Charlie’s Hero – The Blurb

Schoolteacher Charlie Matthews returns to his hometown, looking to regain a sense of community, reconnect with friends, and settle down. It looks like his dreams have come true when paramedic Josh Campbell attends an accident at the school. It’s love at first sight, and a romance begins.

But Josh’s reluctance to come out to the brother who raised him, puts pressure on their fledgling relationship. While Charlie understands Josh’s concerns, he can’t help growing impatient. After all, Charlie came out years ago.

It’s not until Charlie confronts his own parents and realizes he hasn’t come to terms with their rejection that he fully understands what Josh has to lose. But Josh is Charlie’s hero, and Josh will do anything to prove to Charlie that he doesn’t need his parents to be part of a family.
