December Swoops In

I've been quite quiet since my last blog post, partly because I have two stories competing for attention in my brain and partly because life in general has cranked up a gear and become hectic, leaving less time for sitting down and catching up with things.

So far this month, I've been experimenting in the kitchen (which is always a scary time, because I can't bake anything without it looking as if a small floury bomb has detonated nearby) and in the spirit of the festive season, I had a go at making chocolates for the first time.

Here's a sample of the chocolatey goodness.

And I made some fudge.

Next stop, sweet mince pies and biscuits. The kitchen won't be safe until at least 2012.

Book Signing.
I'm not out and about much this month, but if you live in the Darlington area and you fancy braving the shops in town on Christmas Eve, I'll be signing books in Waterstone's from 11am-3pm, so maybe I'll see you there!

For now, I shall leave you with a slice of festive joy to warm your cockles this wintry eve.

Happy December!
