I had been planning to create a writing blog for quite a while and started by creating one on Blogger called Labradors and cappuccino. If you go over there you’ll find very similar content for the first 10 or so blogs because after a couple of weeks I realised that although Labradors and cappuccino may mean a lot to me as a blog name -it does not adequately describe my blog. My blog is a writing blog -not a blog simply for Labrador and cappuccino lovers!! http://labradorsandcappuccino.blogspot.co.uk/

So, my new blog title is Words! words! words! because my whole life now revolves around using them well.
The most exciting thing I’ve ever done as a writer is write my first full length children’s novel and enter it for the Kelpies 2012 Book Award.  I was shortlisted and had to attend the award ceremony at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Of course, I was upset not to win but at least I was in the top three – so, onwards and upwards!Tomorrow I’ll blog about my history as a writer, or would-be writer, which dates back to my teens, many moons ago.
