THE GREAT ARCHITECT - a poem for Christmas Eve

Today is Day 24 of the Christmas with the Crooked Cats Advent Calendar, and it's my turn to reveal what's behind the door.

Here, then, is a little Christmas-related ditty.  From all at Barnard Towers, may I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and blessed Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous 2017.


Building a home, a place of your own,
is a careful and skilled operation;
be it palace or croft, from cellar to loft
you must start with a stable foundation.         

Doors, passages, halls, windows, ceilings and walls
are all signs of great civilisation,
but what makes buildings sound is what’s under the ground –
so there must be a stable foundation.

When the world first began, built to one clever plan,
human life was the greatest creation.
But no matter how fine is the final design,
it must start with a stable foundation.

The Creator, afraid that the world He had made
might be heading for hell and damnation,
concocted a plan which could save sinful man –
but it must have a stable foundation.

So with angels in flight, on a Bethlehem night,
to a world cursed with pain and frustration
came One whose sole aim was to end sin and shame;
He began with a stable foundation.

NEVER ON SATURDAY - now available for pre-order

Dear Friends,

I'm thrilled to be able to announce that the Kindle edition of Never on Saturday (my new time-slip romance novella, based on an old French legend) is now available for pre-order. Just click on the cover image on the right to be taken to your local Amazon website.

Two stories, two heartbreaks: one past, one present...

Leaving her native France and arriving in North Wales as a postgraduate student of History and Folklore, Mel is cautiously optimistic that she can escape from her troubled past and begin a new and happier life.

She settles into her student accommodation and begins work on her thesis, concentrating particularly on one fascinating manuscript: a compelling and tragic tale of a cursed medieval princess.

Then she meets Ray - charming, down-to-earth and devastatingly handsome.  Within days, Mel's entire world has transformed from lonely and frustrated to loving and fulfilled. Despite her failure with previous relationships, she allows herself to hope that this time, at last, she can make it work.

But Mel's dreams of happiness are under constant threat.  She is hiding a dark and terrible secret, which Ray - or indeed anybody else - must never ever discover...
