'The End'

I shouldn't be here and neither should you. We should be blanching potatoes for tomorrow or carol singing. But as my family are in a frenzy of indifference, I had to come here to say that I've finished my first draft of Sitting Pretty.

When I started - three years ago - I wanted to just write a book but it has been more than that. I know this is corny but it really has been a journey and I've rediscovered something that is more than a hobby - it makes me very happy.

Have a wonderful Christmas fellow Novel Racers and thank you.
