Out today in what looked and felt like a winter wonderland.
It had been a good week (I made the USA Today Bestseller list with MONARCH OF THE SANDS), but this was the real frosting on the cake.
The snow in the city had mostly melted but high up on Farley Mount it was like being in a different world. I saw three deer (not ships!) gamboling across a woodland path ahead of me, which gave the walk a magical touch.
The snow was intact and crunchy underfoot (very good research because my current hero and heroine are just about to experience a whirling snowstorm!).
But most of all, it was beautiful.

Where have you been recently that's beautiful?


  1. Ooh! Farley Mount! I love it up there, could you see the Spinnaker Tower that day?

    I'm out that way later in the week, might just follow in your footsteps!

    Congrats on the USA Today Bestseller list too! Mega! XXX

  2. Thanks, Rachel!

    No, didn't see the Tower that day - was simply dazzled by the snow, But Farley Mount is pretty special at all times. I love it when all the bluebells are out.
