4th February 2020 - Update

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to post a quick message to update you on where I'm at with the writing. I've had several emails over the last few weeks asking when new books will be coming and the answer is, I don't have specific dates yet.

Leger books

I've written seven more Leger stories. They run in sequence so the seventh wouldn't make sense without having read the sixth and so on. Unfortunately I'm stuck on the first book, Leger's Gratitude. There are a few situations and twists I can't get quite right yet, so until I do, all books will remain unpublished. It's likely that they'll all be released in one short burst.

Fairy tales

There's another one on the way. It's the prequel to Cherry Lips. I'll combine all four books into one volume and release at the same time. I'll also be updating Waiting For Magic as I was never quite satisfied with that one. I could have done better. 

Other pseudonyms

I'm currently writing under other pseudonyms. The Candlelight Lane Mysteries will be coming later this year and when they do, they'll be released under Sharon Charlotte. There's also going to be some more chick-lit. Divas Espana, Glam Rock and Hen In Rome will finally be released after almost ten years waiting in the wings. The pseudonyms are undecided right now but I'll keep you updated. I've also been writing erotic short stories under a secret pseudonym that I am not going to reveal publicly to spare my family the embarrassment.


Rock Paper Spirit is still very active. Broken Heels is coming soon - that's a travel blog for those with barriers to travel. I've also got a perfume blog in the works and this site will feature more book reviews and author interviews this year.

Short Stories

I had this idea that I wanted to write short stories in the Scots language. That dream died on its arse, but I do still have a handful of short stories written in English that I am trying to get published in magazines. If, after a year, they don't get picked up, I'll publish them on Amazon.

I realise that many of my readers will be disappointed that Leger has been on hiatus for a while. It's absolutely crucial that I get the stories just right for you. I don't want to put out something that I'm not happy with. Please also remember that there is no team of writers, editors, proofreaders, graphic designers and publicists working on this. It's just me. I'm working hard every day of the week to get the books ready for you. Thank you for your patience.
