In the general euphoria of having delivered a manuscript that I had been working at for all hours of the day and night (or so it seemed, during those emotional last few scenes) - I haven't posted for a few days. But now I"m back! Feverishly running around and buying things like clumps of cinnamon and sweet oranges and lighting incense which smells like a winter forest. I love Christmas. Flickering candles. The heart-piercing song of the chorister. And of course, chocolate.....

In the past month I've been to Umbria, Cornwall, Avignon and Paris - and here's a photo of my daughter and son, in beautiful Avignon.

And one of my latest book - which is out in north America now.

If I could have one wish prior to Christmas, it would be to go to Lapland and ride in a sleigh jingling with bells to see the Northern lights.
What would be your wish?


  1. Congrats on finishin the book. I'm with you on Lapland definately - and I would love to stay in an ice hotel - how cool (no pun intended) would *that* be! Or failing that - Iceland and a dip in the Blue Lagoon. Take care. Caroline x

  2. Welcome back, Sharon - and congrats on your latest book. I love Christmas too and its wintry atmosphere but I'd like to experience Christmas holiday where the weather is really hot one day! Guilty - the American drama television series The O.C. (where families reside in the lovely Newport Beach, California) which make me feel curious to celebrate sleeveless and have a bath in the sea.

  3. Congrats on finishing the book. I can't wait to find out what it's all about.
    Lapland sounds a nice idea and seeing the Norhtern Lights has always been a dream of mine, but I'm with Michela on this one. Somewhere hot would be really nice right now!

  4. Wonderful to see the photo of the kids!
