PEWTER SKIES AND PEWTER EYES
I've been very lazy about keeping this blog and my only excuse is that I've been writing and....writing. Lots of writing. I've been creating enigmatic Sheikhs and ruthless Greeks, charismatic Tuscans and unforgiving Neapolitans. And then I've had to come up with the women who have the tough job of melting the hearts of these powerful men.
But work aside, I've been dodging the rain which has beset England for the last however many months (it seems like forever) - and making the most of the entertainment on offer.
I've seen some amazing theatre (Posh; Love, Love, Love: A Long Days Journey Into Night) and some equally great films (The Five Year Engagement; My Sister's Sister - both starring the very talented Emily Blunt). I've listened to some great music (Ravel's Bolero, which I'd never heard "live"before plus the magnificent opera Tosca, which was performed in the Great Conservatory at Syon Park)
This month, I have a book out in the USA called PLAYING THE GREEK'S GAME.
It's about a ve-ry sexy Greek and a woman with a past who is determined to play him at his own game. Here's a peep at the cover picture of Zak and Emma in New York.
I'd love to know what has everyone else been doing this "summer" - but you may all have decided to desert this neglected page and I can see that in future I must try harder!
Oh, and if you're wondering about the "pewter eyes" in the title of this blog - they are the smouldering eyes of Zak. The ones which seem to look into Emma's soul....
