    Have just finished reading The Chateau on the Lake and once started couldn’t put it down. Fantastic read. Will you be writing a sequel as to what happens next.

    • I’m so pleased you enjoyed The Chateau on the Lake. Sadly, I’m not planning a sequel at the moment but who knows what the future will bring? You might like The House in Quill Court, which has been recently published and I’m working hard on The Dressmaker’s Secret, which will be published next May. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment – it’s so important to an author to know that readers like their work.
