Hello All,  

I hope your 2012 has got off to a great start!

I’m furiously making headway on my new fantasy novel (still untitled) as it now needs a very good ‘going over.’  So, because of this, I don’t have the time to update my blog… But never fear, as promised and as a treat to you, here is the first of my Guest Blogs!! And it’s by Bestselling author Carole Matthews.

 Here she talks about being an author and baking cupcakes – MY TWO MOST FAVOURITE SUBJECTS!!  Take it away Carole!!

Being a Successful Author While Baking Cakes- By Carole Matthews

As I write two books a year, I use up a lot of material. So I try to do lots of varied and interesting things that I can store up for future use in my books -paintballing, ballroom dancing, white water rafting. You get my drift. I once spent a whole year researching opera for Welcome To The Real World and, frankly, if I ever see another one in my lifetime, it will be too soon.  For my latest book, Wrapped up in You, we went on safari to the Maasai Mara. Doing two books every year, I use up a lot of research material. So when I had the vague idea that learning to decorate cupcakes might come in useful for a future novel, I never imagined that going along to a cupcake course would rekindle a long-lost interest in baking and turn it into an obsessive hobby.

YES, I have been so busy over the last few weeks, sorting out the new website/blog/fantasy novel (ok, a web developer helped me with the website etc!) but I did manage to enjoy my Christmas whilst working everything out and now as I sit here typing this post, we’re into the early hours of 2012!! How time runs!!  In no time at all, ‘Being Lara’ will be out and hopefully the book I am currently writing (no name, as of yet) will be taking real shape!!

So the work continues… and as I’ll be a busy bee over the coming months, I have roped in a couple of ‘friends’ to help me keep this blog updated from time to time. Namely the wonderful bestselling authors Carole Matthews, Katy Regan and many more… so stay tuned, or logged or whatever the cyber-version is called!

Okay, so I’m off to bed soon after I finish listening to the Late Great Amy Winehouse – so I bid you good night… But do take a tour around my NEW WEBSITE and I hope you like my new look blog and… the Avatar… her name’s Lola Pagola.
