Happy Christmas

xmas bullfinchI would like to wish a VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS to all my friends, readers and blog followers.

2018 has been a good year for me on the writing front, with lots of acclaim for my wartime LAVENDER ROAD novels, and several of them hitting the best seller charts. All six books are now out as paperbacks, eBooks and audio books worldwide.

For those of you who have read the Lavender Road books there is still the option to have a go at SLICK DEALS, the adventure thriller I wrote a while back to amuse my husband, which is set in Monaco, France, London and lovely Pembrokeshire where we live. For the more romantic of you there is also THE ART OF LOVING, a light romance set in Germany, which launched my writing career so many years ago by getting me short-listed for the RNA new writer award!

Many of you will know that we spent 12 years or so caring for my mother who was suffering with Alzheimer’s, and then, as soon as she had died, for two elderly dogs. Sadly both of these have also now left us. Our house suddenly feels very empty so we have decided to do some of the travelling that we’ve been unable to do over recent years. To that end we are setting off in January for a two and a half month voyage to Australia, taking in the Azores, the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Mexico, Guatemala, French Polynesia (including the Marquesas Islands), Tonga and New Zealand on the way. I am afraid not very much writing is going to get done during that time, but I will be posting photos on my Twitter and Facebook pages and perhaps one of our adventures will give rise to a new novel in the future!

In the meantime I wish you all health and happiness for the New Year and I will be back in touch later on in 2019.

All best wishes, Helen

    A Christmas message, from my ALLTIME favourite author!

    Helen, It’s that growing older old man from Arizona. I don’t think I will ever find a series as intriguing as Lavender Road. I haven’t been reading a lot lately. I just loved your style of writing. I find it relaxing. I had book 6 for several months before I read it. I just didn’t want to have the series come to an end. But when I finished I simply can say I loved it, but was sad it was over. I hope you chose your next subject wisely. My wife’s father was in WWI. He was in charge of a black platoon that carried decreased soldiers as well as wounded out of the trenches. Anyway, chasing after a subject would be so difficult to do. Best of luck and relax for awhile. Your Lavender Road Friend. – Greg

    • Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I am so pleased you enjoyed the books. It is wonderful for any writer to know that they have brought pleasure to their readers. Your father’s story sounds amazing – you must be so proud.
      Thank you again for your support. I am honoured that you have taken the time to write to me. It really means a lot. With all best wishes, Helen

    Happy Christmas to you too Helen. I hope you enjoy your travels. It sounds like you deserve them. I too am having an ‘odd’ Christmas. My Mother died during the year and our lovely elderly Irish Wolfhound left us last weekend. Our Labrador Cross is a bit lost at the moment so it’s all change for him too.
    Here’s hoping 2019 will be good to us all.

    • I am so sorry to hear of your losses. Life is very tough on us sometimes. Losing loved ones and beloved pets is horrible. This will be a hard Christmas for I am sure. Time does heal but it is sometimes a long wait. Wishing you a peaceful Christmas and comfort in the New Year, Helen
