We’ve been nag buddies for a long long time, and have worked together on workshops for RedPen. Our most recent event was a residential writers’ weekend workshop at the Cottage Hotel, Hope Cove, in March 2018. Our next one will be at the same venue in Spring 2019. Click here for more details.

Patsy’s first guest appearance on my blog was way back in October 2015. She’d just published her first romantic novel: Firestarter!. Patsy was my guest again in April 2016 and once more, in November 2016. In October 2017, Patsy described how she researches her novels – on location. She popped in again in January 2018 to discuss New Year’s Resolutions.
