Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award


Firstly, I would like to thank Helen Phifer (my shelf buddy) for nominating me. It’s the third award I’ve been nominated for during my forty one years on the planet. The first was in the category, ‘Person most likely to become a Blue Peter presenter’ (I neither won the award nor went on to become Helen Skelton). The second was for my second book, ‘Dear Lizzie’ in the ‘Best eBook’ category at last year’s Festival of Romantic Fiction. I didn’t win this one either but I had a lovely evening laughing and chatting with lots of fellow authors.

This leads me on neatly to what I like about this award. It’s about supporting and encouraging fellow female writers, having a giggle along the way, sharing our thoughts and acknowledging this unique pool of creative talent.

Sisters, I salute you!

Here are my answers to lovely Helen’s questions:

What is your dream job?

I’ve always wanted to work at John Lewis, marry George Clooney and eat chocolate for a living so perhaps I could be Mr. Clooney’s personal chocolate shopper at John Lewis?

What do you mean that’s not a real job?

What could you not live without?

My children, my husband, gin.

Who inspires/motivates you?

My children, my husband, gin.

What do you mean gin’s not a person?

Where is you ideal holiday destination?

Southwold in Suffolk. There’s a long beach with candy-coloured beach huts nestled along the promenade, a pier and a brewery in the town. It’s basically heaven by the sea.

If you could arrange a meeting with anyone alive or dead who would it be?

My father-in-law, Bob, who died five years ago. I want him to see how wonderful his grandchildren are now.

What advice do you wish someone had given you when you were younger?

It will all be okay.


I would like to nominate Katie Oliver, Rebecca Raisin, Jill Steeples, Samantha Tonge, Holly Martin, Karen Aldous and Kerry Barrett to answer the following questions:

Have you had a ‘sliding doors’ moment and what would have happened if you’d followed the other path?

Who is your favourite writer and why?

What was the last thing you ate?

Which historical period do you wish you’d lived in?

Tea or coffee?

What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

What’s your greatest ambition?

Over to you, blogging sisters!
