Review of Pica by Jeff Gardiner
Happy Tuesday to you! horsetail It's been a day of garden catch ups for me. Sadly, I have an area of my garden that's rarely tamed and where horsetail weed likes to pop up in a trice and flourishes all too well through the granite chipped paths. If you're a...

Fun Adventure!
It's said that authors appreciate the time it takes a reader
to write a review, and I most certainly do.  Sometimes I regret that I don't notice them right away and that's what's happened with this one below for my contemporary romantic mystery thriller Top...

and the above is said to be his Famous Last Words. (N.B. some references quote
the 24th June as opposed to 23 rd June) However, there’s a little confusion over what actually were

Introduction
Nancy writes historical romantic adventures set in northern Roman Britain in the late first century - her Celtic Fervour Series. Contemporary romantic mysteries are also a joy to write, especially when she can incorporate some historical aspects (ancestral tree mysteries) or wonderful contemporary locations around the world. Her Rubidium Time Travel adventure series is for Middle Grade/ YA and above, the first book of which is set in 'Scotland' AD 210 during the era when Roman Emperor Severus campaigned in northern Britannia with legions of ancient Roman troops. Current writing includes adventures set in Roman Britain, Victorian Glasgow and a family saga set mainly in Scotland from 1850.
Bragging rights
TOPAZ EYES, a contemporary mystery, was a Finalist in THE PEOPLE'S BOOK PRIZE 2014.
