Contract Signed – Her Secret Past Coming Soon!

My editor at Totally Bound told me that once I signed the contract I could tell EVERYONE about my upcoming novel. So I am telling everyone, even the crazy dude at the bus stop!


I wrote a novel. I started it with NaNoWriMo in November and finished at the end of January with just over 72 000 words and a knackered me.

I submitted Her Secret Past with trepidation. I thought it was good but the minute I send a story off I get blessed with crippling doubt. With this one being for a specific call, the What’s Her Secret range, that doubt was doubled. Would the editor like it? Would it fit the bill?

I got the answer the very next day! Now that is unusual and was very welcome as I was told it had been accepted for publication causing me to do the happy dance of joy in the local chemists causing my 12 year old daughter much embarrassment! I’ve had to hold the news in for just under a week though until I signed the contract.

But now I can SQUEEEE! Loudly and tell you all about it. :) Here’s the blurb as it stands (may change in edits!)

A past she wants to forget, a secret that will change everything and a hunky guy who should have known better.

It’s no secret that Katrina Quinn has been caught having an affair with her hunky co-star. Hounded by the press she has escaped to Yorkshire, England and the remote seclusion of Copse Cottage. It’s a house packed full of junk and memories, much too much for one woman to handle.

For odd job man Ryan Taylor, being hired to clear clutter while ogling one of Hollywood’s hottest stars seems like easy money. A good way to escape his jealous, drunken girlfriend Eve who seems intent on making his life a misery. But Copse Cottage is haunted with his happy past, stirring anew his longing for the girl he used to call the best in the world.

A stolen beat-up suitcase is going to change everything, Secrets will be revealed, Hearts will be broken all over again, and the biggest mystery of all will finally be answered.

That’s all I can give you for now, but the General release is set for June, so you haven’t got too long to wait to get your mitts on it!
