Revenge of the Day Job

It’s that time of year again where every waking moment becomes one long round of writing, revisions, grasping for the perfect turn of phrase or most appropriate euphemism, more writing and finally handing in the finished project to be read and hopefully passed off (without any typos or spelling mistakes).  The deadline looms and as always I’mContinue reading “Revenge of the Day Job”

Limbo!

I haven’t updated for a while because I’m in a strange period where I’ve done everything I can do and the book is now out of my hands.  It’s unsettling because I’m a control freak, nosy and impatient.  The October release date feels a long time away. I received a formatted document of Falling for Her Captor aContinue reading “Limbo!”

Today however I received my AFS, which stands for Art Fact Sheet.  Before today I didn’tContinue reading “In Just Seven Days…”

The day I came out

Everyone has secrets.  Mine was that while my husband was working away I’d wait till the kids were in bed, get comfortable on the sofa (usually with the aforementioned cat) open the laptop and… write. I can’t remember exactly when I decided I’d try write a novel but one night I did.  It must haveContinue reading “The day I came out”

What’s in a name?

Choose a pen name.  Easy right?  My original pseudonym – DeeDee Elle- came about as an in joke based on an online mum’s group when I needed something to hide behind on Wattpad (my day job is teaching so it was a definite necessity).  It was a good name, it did the job, the womenContinue reading “What’s in a name?”
