Inspiring Women

Between juggling a full time day job and writing and everything that life throws at me, sometimes I just want to go back to bed and stay under the duvet for a long stretch.

But that's not an option and of course I don't really want to pack it all in, which is why I love reading inspiring stories, books and articles about women who are getting things done. I recently read Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In. I enjoyed it a lot and in particular one quote stuck with me "done is better than perfect." I keep reminding myself to just get started. Just get it done.

With that in mind, I was hugely inspired by this Victoria Beckham article. It's well worth a read, whether or not you're a Spice Girls fan from back in the day! I'm a huge admirer of anyone who works this hard and has managed to reinvent herself and keep believing in herself in the face of a Great British public who, too often, tend to try to cut people down to size.

So cheers Victoria Beckham... exactly the Monday morning motivation that I needed.

Remember My Name - now on release

My novel Remember My Name is now on release. 
Check it out! 

Can't wait to read your reviews.

And don't forget to enter my giveaway. Details HERE 


What price would you pay for fame?

Scriptwriter Talia knows ambition: she sees it in the mirror every day. But working with the world’s biggest divas should come with a health-warning. And when she finds herself in actress Tamara’s bad books, her own claws don’t look so sharp anymore…

Suddenly, Talia’s back to looking up at the stars – and even more determined to take her place among them. And when she lands a job with Alex Golden - legendary womanizer, LA bad-boy and Hollywood’s hottest property - it looks like she could be on her way up. So long as she steers clear of Alex’s scandalous propositions… 

But Talia hasn’t nearly seen the worst that ambition can do. Because the road to fame may glitter… but it’s no easy ride. And in a world where winner takes all, some people will stop at nothing to claim their prize.
