It’s brilliant to see that The Royal Station Master’s Daughters at War is travelling far and wide.

Beth sent me this fabulous snap of her turning the pages on the beach in Dubai this week, another reader told me she was taking both books in the series to Fuerteventura in the next week, while another asked me to post her a copy to France where she lives.

I’ve been thrilled to have received such kind media coverage too – many thanks to the Ely Standard for their fab report, and also to the award winning Cambridge Independent. I was interviewed by BBC Norfolk too and will be speaking to listeners of Cambridge 105 Bookmark programme next week.

I recently heard from a lady who made me smile from ear to ear after telling me of the pleasure The Royal Station Master’s Daughters had given her mother. She said:


“I am just writing about how wonderful your books about The Royal Station Master are. My mum was given book 1, she absolutely loved reading it as it was all based around the area where she was brought up as a little girl so while reading it she could relate with it, because when she little her dad or her uncle used to take her to the station and they went as a family to Sandringham to see the royals. When she had finished book 1, I managed to find book 2 on Amazon for her and she has now started to read it and while she’s reading it, it mentions in there about the church and hospital where my mum was christened and where she was sent to when she had scarlet fever. So thank you for the wonderful memories you’ve given my mum.”
I was on Cloud 9 after reading these kind words. Feedback like this is the icing on the cake after the hours spent researching and bringing these stories to life through my characters. Knowing it brings so much pleasure to others is a dream come true for me.
