Well, Summer is over… actually, it has been over for quite a while here in drizzly Scotland! Sigh! It’s time for me to settle down and make a start on my brand new book, Cherry Crush. I spent a few days down in Somerset researching the background (see the photo of me below), and now I’m ready to write!

The winners of the Cupcakes & Kisses Giveaway have been selected so click here to see if you are one of our winners! We had so many entries that we chose 200 winners instead of 150 so that even more of you can enjoy my mini book.

This Autumn, I am planning to run a series of reader reports/interviews from readers I have been lucky enough to meet over the last few months. I’m starting off with a piece by reader Connie, who came to see me in Carlisle in january and again in Preston in July. Here is Connie’s report!

Meeting Cathy Cassidy…

On Saturday 31st January, I met the amazing Cathy… I felt like THE luckiest girl ever! We chatted about our favourite places that we had been to, and also her inspirations. Also she told me how she came up with the material for her amazing books and we confessed to each other which one was our favourite… Ssh it’s a secret!

I could not believe it when I was with her, it was like a dream. A hot chocolate with Cathy Cassidy!!

I met Cathy again recently on July 11th at Preston for the booksigning of her new book “Angel Cake.” Sadly, we didn’t have as long to chat but all the same, I was there right?

These lucky days couldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for my supportive family, my encouraging friends and of course, my Idol Cathy Cassidy. Thank you all for everything!
