Your next sneaky little peek...

As a cheer went up, Beth moved, not wanting to be seen. She wasn’t going to spoil a surprise they seemed to have gone to great effort to organise. She headed towards the toilets.

Another Read for Winter!

Oooooh, I love winter. And not just because big chunky jumpers mean I can indulge in the caramel ones the Quality Street tub without waistband worry. I love it because it’s a time for cosy nights on the sofa, roaring fires, and books – lots of books!
There’s something magical about a Christmas read. Not even the life-size, flashing Rudolph on my roof (apologies again to the neighbours) does more to get me in the festive spirit.

A Christmas last!

I’m so delighted to tell you a little about my new novel, What Happened To Us?  You will have probably already guessed that this is a Christmas read from the lovely spangly cover my publishers have designed for it. It is just gorgeous, isn’t it?

Because Mummy Said So...

For almost twenty years, I’ve made a living writing romcoms and raunchy bonkbusters. It’s a glamorous, elegant existence in which I waft around in designer togs being creative, sometimes reclining on a chaise longue with a tray of Turkish Delight until the muse grabs me. That’s when I lift my diamanté-studded fountain pen and scribe a few thousand words with carefree abandon. 

Okay, that’s all lies – apart from the bit about writing romcoms and raunchy bonkbusters. And the Turkish Delight. 

Minna Howard on the dreaded synopsis!

      I simply hate writing a synopsis of a book I’ve yet to write.
        I know it’s an important part of pitching an idea for a novel but if I know how the story is going to pan out before I write it I become overwhelmed with boredom and the idea is dead before its began. 
         Writing a novel is a big commitment and I need the excitement of spontaneous events, new trials and tribulations to test my characters, see how they affect them and how they deal with them.
