I was inspired to start this page by two of my lovely readers, Rebecca Adelson and Katie Winkless, both of whom have lovely dogs. Because I love animals, many of my readers send me photos of their pets. Rebecca and Katie suggested that I put photos of pets on my website and I thought it was a brilliant idea. If you have a cat, dog, horse or hamster you adore, send me a photo. I’ll pick my favourite each month and put it on my website.
My April pet is Katie’s adorable border terrier, Pip, seen here with her dad.
When 16-year-old Elliie arrives in Devon with her warring parents, she’s convinced it’ll be the half term from hell. Ever since her sister died three years earlier, there’s been nothing but rain, gloom and endless arguments.
Then she meets Logan. He’s gorgeous and owns five horses, reason enough for Ellie stay away, especially since her mum and dad have forbidden to ride or ever have any fun at all. Trouble is, he’s proving hard to resist.
How do you know if love is worth the risk?

I was incredibly excited to learn of the discovery, in Tanzania, of a real life ‘white’ giraffe. Omo is leucistic, meaning that some of his skin cells are not capable of making pigment. That means that, while he’s pale, he’s not a true albino.
The amazing thing about this story is that, in The White Giraffe, the first novel in my series, Jemmy is described as being silver with patches of cinnamon – the exact same colour as Omo! It’s almost as if Jemmy has stepped from the pages of my book and become a living, breathing giraffe.

If you like YA dystopia, cli fi or sci fi fiction, get your hands on a copy of Jule Owen’s The Boy Who Fell from the Sky. It’s a thrill-ride of a book and there are two more in the series, Silverwood and The Moon at Noon, both equally brilliant!
