Hello and Welcome

fully-supported-800px

Hello and welcome to my blog.  It’s chiefly a writer’s den written by me Sharon a new writer who has a somewhat considered opinion on many things.  Watch this space as I ramble on about anything that has niggled me, enlightened me, or just given me a little laugh.  Life, can make you cry as well as laugh!  I hope there are more laughs along the way!

I will let you know what I have been up to, what I am working on and what I am reading. Any books, short stories or anything that I particularly enjoyed I’ll pass on.  And of course if I get that oh-so-elusive book deal, I’ll be sure to let you know.

So watch this space.

Until next time

Happy Writing! S
