Stella's Christmas Wish

Christmas has come early for me this year with the imminent publication of my first full-length novel Stella’s Christmas Wish. It’s from Edinburgh publishers Black and White Publishing – the cover isn’t black and white though; it’s in pretty colours, with my name on it …

You can pre-order now for a bargain 98p and it will be on your Kindle on 3 November.

One phone call can change everything...
Six days before Christmas, Stella could never have anticipated the impact on her life when the phone rings in her London office.
The phone call is from a friend of the family informing Stella that her grandmother has been hurt in a fall at her home in the Scottish borders and is in hospital. Torn between her responsibilities at work and the need to be with her grandmother she decides she must return to Scotland immediately.
However, on her return to where she grew up, it becomes apparent that her grandmother’s health is not her only concern. Relationships which have lain dormant for years are re-kindled and fresh opportunities present themselves – if she will only dare to take them...

Up until now I’ve had published around fifty short stories and three magazine serials and I self-published a collection of short stories Three’s a Crowd. I'm very excited to have written A Whole Novel and very very excited to be having it published by Black and White Publishing who say they are ‘committed to publishing the best books from the most talented writers in the UK’.
