It is with fingers firmly crossed that I watch the release of my latest novel, By My Side. As a second book, the pressure is always on to live up to the first, so it is an anxious time for any author. It was a delight, therefore, that the team at Harper Impulse came up with one of my favourite things to put on my cover. I love Butterflies. I have them on everything. It's probably my main girly concession, not being a big fan of pink. So I thought I would show you some of my butterfly things to let you see how lucky this felt. By the way, blue is also my favourite colour!
I have fancy butterfly china, butterflies in the garden and a dress I bought in Singapore with butterflies all over it.
I have butterflies on the walls, on jewellery, on photo albums and even on (rather crumpled) clothing. I have one in the dried flower arrangement in my living room, but best of all I like to take photographs of them.
And my favourite ones are always blue!
Wife, mother, lapsed doctor. Hopelessly in love with every hero I've ever written.
