“It’s difficult to classify myself solely as a writer of romance, when in fact writing about women’s lives, and the complexities that has gone into making her that woman, entails a great deal more than romance.”
Cheers. Here’s to my work-in-progress, my next novel, Life Happens.
About three sisters, two of them separated in their early teens from their albino sister by their emotionally constipated and disturbed father.
The sisters spend the next twenty-five-years trying to find each other, while coping with the journey of life and all life brings. Joy, pain, success, distress, love, heartbreak, trauma, loneliness & self-actualisation. Because.
When you go out to lunch and your date is your book. LOL. 🤣🤣🤣
I got me this weird habit of always carrying around a copy or copies of my book, if not in my hand bag, then there’s always one in my car.
It comes in handy when I bump into someone I haven’t seen in a while and they ask me what I’m doing now, I whisk out my book and there always follows an excited conversation where I’m bombarded with questions about my literary journey, which always lead to a confession in them always wanting to write a book/memoirs, but how? They want to know.
A word from author, Courttia Newland about the forthcoming Hammersmith & Fulham Writers Festival.
‘It’s really exciting to see a writers festival in my home borough at last, and while I can’t be there my spirit will be smiling there with you all. The creativity in and around H&F is world renowned, and so you’re guaranteed to be seeing the best literature has to offer.’
We are so proud of the Hammersmith & Fulham working festival panel for all the work they are putting in to ensure the borough host its’ first writer’s festival successfully.
Big thanks goes out to #benjaminzephaniah and #courttianewland for their support.
“The Hammersmith & Fulham Writers’ Festival has come to bring joy to the world. This festival is a great space for writers and readers to engage with each other, and a great place for us all to open up. I wish all participants the best as they spread the creative love.”
No matter what I’m doing on a Sunday all come to a standstill at 7:30pm BST, as I prepare for my weekly Author Talk Show, with co-host and author @stellaonithewriter. Our special expert guest, @dlee_inspires always adds great value with her library & wealth of information on everything book publishing.
I just finished work & I’m checking the sun out, & the sun is checking me out, topping up my Vit D.
So I’m just chilling in the amazing sunshine leaning against my car and all I’m imagining is the 7 miles of white Sandy beach in Negril, Jamaica, the fry fish, breadfruit & bammy 😋 not to mention my rum punch.
The UK takes on a different look in the summertime. People are happier as smiling & laughing becomes easier.
The sun enhances moods, emotions & feelings - I’m taking on a feel good vibe, enjoying the sun, no matter how long it lasts here in the UK.
